Harp, flute and percussion


The final concert of the Breckenridge Music Festival 2010 Winter Series will take place at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Colorado Mountain College, Breckenridge Campus. Guest artists for this enjoyable program of music for harp, flute and percussion are members of The Philadelphia Orchestra.

Principal harpist Elizabeth Hainen has won international acclaim as one of today’s foremost harpists. Hailed by the Washington Post for her “unusual presence with silky transparency,” she has charmed audiences as a recitalist and concerto soloist throughout the U.S., Europe, Asia and South America.

Principal flutist Jeffrey Khaner joined the Philadelphia Orchestra in 1990 following his principal position with the Cleveland Orchestra. A graduate and faculty member of the Julliard School, Khaner has been a faculty member of the Curtis Institute of Music since 1985.

David DePeters has been percussionist with The Philadelphia Orchestra for 18 seasons. DePeters was a founding member of the Curtis Percussion Quartet and has arranged and performed original works throughout the United States and at France’s Evian Music Festival.

Though Hainen and DePeters, a married couple, have a long attachment to Breckenridge as avid skiers, this is their first visit as musical guests in Summit County. All three artists regularly appear in Vail at the Bravo Festival, where The Philadelphia Orchestra is in residence each summer.

The program of mixed duos includes music from Bach to Rossini, a set of Latin “Dances for harp with percussion” and Astor Piazzolla’s “Cafe 1930.”
