So, you want to be Sharlene Wallace? Well, okay, but I’ll tell you right now: It’s near impossible.
Shar plays the concert harp in symphonies in Guelph, Oakville and Kingston, Ontario, among others, and she’s been a concert soloist all over the country. For you that would mean at least a couple of decades of practice, a degree from U of T with the renowned teacher Judy Loman and more studies with the famed Alfredo Rolando Ortiz – the world’s leading exponent of the Paraguayan harp. He even wrote music for Shar to premiere at the World Harp Congress. It’s true.
