Join us on Friday, August 5th for Night 1 of Bravo! Big Sky Music Festival with Abigail Kent & Friends at the Warren Miller Performing Arts Center.
One of the brightest young stars of the harp, Abigail Kent is an international award-winning harpist, hailed as “superb” by the South Florida Classical Review and praised for her “immaculate playing and musical sensitivity” in Fanfare Magazine’s review of the Taylor Festival Choir’s 2020 album “So Hallow’d the Time.”
Kent was the February 2018 “New Artist” for Musical America International Magazine as well as the touring Harp Ambassador as “Concert Artist” for the American Harp Society 2017-19. With this prize, she presented 25 solo recitals and taught 18 masterclasses throughout the US.
In addition to her success as a concert soloist, Ms. Kent is also in high demand as an orchestral harpist. She is Acting Principal Harpist for the Charleston Symphony Orchestra, Principal Harpist for “Symphony in C” Orchestra in New Jersey, and plays often with the New World Symphony. Additionally, she has performed at international summer music festivals including Spoleto Festival USA, Pacific Music Festival (Sapporo, Japan), National Repertory Orchestra, and the Aspen Music Festival.
