56. The Wicked Harp - Laura Sherman, harpist

July 9, 2021

Laura Sherman is currently a lecturer for the Frost School of Music at the University of Miami.  Prior to that, she lived in NYC and played on Broadway shows, most prominently as the harpist for Wicked.  She also is the harpist on the Original Broadway Cast Recording for Hamilton: The Musical, which is notable in that there is not a harp book for the show.  We talk about why that is, along with her experiences for both shows as well as more deep-diving into the uniqueness of harp in general!  We discuss an article she wrote about Broadway harpists for Harp Column Magazine, and you can find that here:
