New York City Harpist
Margaret Davis is a harpist and singer based in New York City. Well-versed in the classical repertoire, Davis earned a Bachelor of Harp from The Juilliard School, and a Master of Music Degree from The Yale School of Music. Since graduating, she has worked to combine her two passions and perform original arrangements of jazz and contemporary music at private events, weddings, and concert venues throughout the Northeast. She is currently recording her first jazz album as a singing harpist. Davis also performs and records classical music as a soloist, orchestral, and chamber musician, and was featured as a guest recitalist at the University of Scranton last year. Recently, Davis performed at Carnegie Hall with Ensemble Connect, at the Tower Theater in Philadelphia with rock band, Hanson, and at Afternoon Tea at the St. Regis Hotel in New York City. Davis is a founding member of new, indie band, Astoria Window, featuring harp, vocals, electric ukulele, and electronics. Astoria Window utilizes fx pedals and electronic elements to augment the acoustic nature of the harp. The band is set to release its debut single this spring.
