Celtic Harp Orchestra of Southern California
The Celtic Harp Orchestra of Southern California (CHOSC) was founded by Aedan in April 2016. Her main goal was to bring together Celtic harpers of all levels, from beginner to professional, to play, perform, and explore the beauty and magic of the Celtic harp and its music. Additionally her hope is to help preserve and promote the Celtic harp tradition through education and performance, and to support aspiring and established Celtic harpers.
CHOSC is an ensemble of Celtic harps, with fiddle, flute, dance and voice woven into the mix to create an enchanting program. We love playing the beautiful slow airs, and we also greatly enjoy playing the lively dance tunes. The orchestra currently has 23 members coming from all over So Cal ... from San Dimas to Santa Barbara and from Santa Clarita to the South Bay. Primarily a Celtic Harp group, the orchestra is enhanced by fiddle, flute, bodhran, singers and an Irish dancer. Other musicians interested in playing Celtic music in an ensemble are welcome to join.
