Kids play harps before Charlotte Symphony Lollipops Concert

Students from the Suzuki Class of the Roth Harp Studio in Lake Wylie recently proved playing the harp is not a dying art.

"After I retired as principal harpist with the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra, my dream was to have my students performing in the lobby before the Lollipops concerts," wrote Bette Roth in an email.

Five children, between ages 6 and 9, fulfilled that wish this November in the Knight Theater lobby before the Charlotte Symphony Lollipops Concert began.

Other children attending the concert had the chance to try playing as well.
