Playing and teaching the harp for the love of it is what award winning harpist, Virginia Schweninger, does, and her music shows it. Providing inspiration and opportunity to her students is a great passion for Virginia. She was Adjunct Harp Instructor at Sweet Briar College and Lynchburg College and continues to have a busy studio at the Music Emporium in Charlottesville and in Nelson County. Virginia is Founder and Director of the harp ensemble, Harp Song of the Blue Ridge, and Harp Camp Virginia, a 5-day summer harp camp for all ages.


Audiences comment that her romantic harp music seems to set just the right ambiance for so many treasured events. As a freelance harpist Virginia's work has included stints with major entertainers, orchestras, choirs and, often has her playing for weddings and private events. She has a very relaxed and joyful approach to both playing and teaching the harp sharing her eclectic style, including contemporary favorites, Broadway and film music as well as classical and Celtic pieces.
