Harmonia Harp & Flute began in 2017 at the University of Maryland, where Megan Gryder and Samantha Bittle were placed together for a chamber music class. They enjoyed working together so much that they decided to create Harmonia Harp & Flute to share their music with others. Repertoire list includes standard wedding music, classical, and Celtic selections. We are happy to oblige requests for special songs, and can provide an arranging service if needed. Trios with other musicians can also be arranged.
