Classical harpist, Ina McCormack, is an active orchestral musician and performs regularly with the Cleveland Institute of Music Orchestra. She frequently serves as guest principal harpist for many ensembles in the greater Cleveland area. Since her selection in 2016, she has also played as substitute harpist for Michael Tilson Thomas and the New World Symphony in Miami. Her extensive involvement with the Oberlin Contemporary Music Ensemble generated a sustained interest in new music performance. As a progressing chamber musician, Ms. McCormack was a member of the Oberlin based flute, viola, and harp trio, Ensemble TMT, which incorporated both standard and contemporary works into their repertoire.
Ears may become antennae, instigated by nearly nothing. Between appearance and disappearance I find as a listener the possibility to create by myself.
