Anna Reinersman, harpist, began her harp studies at the age of 7, holding her first position as Principal Harp for the Rocky Mountain Symphony in Utah, in the United States, at the age of 14. She received her undergraduate degree from Yale University, and her Master of Music degree in Orchestral Performance at the Manhattan School of Music, studying with Gloria Agostini, Nancy Allen and Sarah Bullen.
Praised by The New York Times as “an elegant harpist”, she performed extensively throughout New York and Boston before relocating to Europe in 2012. Her varied performing career has included a tour of Japan with the Metropolitan Opera, complete Ring Cycles with the Met and the Royal Opera House at Covent Garden, a tour of the UK with Birmingham Royal Ballet and her 6-month-old daughter, Broadway shows and Swedish opera in Gothenburg. She can be heard on the soundtrack of the most recent “The Producers” movie, the cast album for the Broadway revival of “Finian’s Rainbow”, and various other commercial recordings.
Anna created the harp studio at The English School in Gothenburg while maintaining an active career as a chamber musician. Ms. Reinersman is also cofounder of the Carolina Chamber Music Festival and served as codirector for 11 years. As the Principal Harpist of the New York Pops, she returns regularly to New York City.
