Canadian harpist Caroline Cole says people sometimes have a limited notion of what a harp can do and sound like. Her varied career includes performing with symphony orchestras and indie rock bands, in New York performances of The Fantastiks and in the restaurant of the famed Waldorf Astoria hotel, with choirs and dance companies, and in chamber and solo recitals. “It’s a whole new world of opportunities,” she says, and her hope is to “stretch the ears” of her audiences to recognize the versatility of the instrument. She was in Las Cruces to perform with the Las Cruces Symphony Orchestra, and came to the KRWG studios to talk with Intermezzo host Leora Zeitlin about her career, her outreach work, including a special concert for autistic children, and much more.
