Music to Read By

Patrice Haan

Secret Poems, a collection of original tunes and meditations for solo harp by Patrice Haan was released in 2023.

"Imagine finding your calling. The harp has offered me a way to connect in a language beyond words, allowed me to weave of my intentions a basket, a blanket, a safe place. Come, dream.. Be still. Rest." ~ Patrice Haan
