Walk the Labyrinth

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

For thousands of years, human beings have created paths known as labyrinths for reasons ranging from blessing to pilgrimage and healing. Harpists Diana Stork and Portia Diwa have created spiritual, mythic and deeply beautiful music from decades of performing at labyrinths throughout the world. Their performances can be experienced as musical concerts inspired by Medieval, Celtic, classical and even jazz improvisation styles, and also as inward journeys of healing and meditation. You are invited to walk on the labyrinth; or relax and enjoy the heart-felt, organic music of local harpists Diana Stork and Portia Diwa on two hand-made Neo-Celtic lever harps.
