Playing since elementary school, junior Aleeza Hussain enjoys the different sounds and acoustics of the harp. “My favorite part about playing the harp is probably figuring out the different sounds you can make because harps can evoke a variety of emotions. All of the harmonies always come together so beautifully which is really nice.”

Wingspan: When did you start taking music lessons?

Hussain: “I started piano in the third grade, and then I started taking harp lessons in sixth grade.”

Wingspan: What made you want to start piano lessons?

Hussain: “I wanted to start taking piano lessons back then because my mother had always talked about it, but also it’s just a very pretty instrument. It’s also a very foundational instrument because it gives you the ability to play other instruments, like the harp.”

Wingspan: What made you want to do harp in sixth grade?

Hussain: “I remember going to the middle school orchestra fair and listening to the harpists, and it was a really pretty sounding and unique instrument. I also already knew piano so it’d be easier for me to transition to the harp.”

Wingspan: What’s your favorite part of being a harpist?

Hussain: “My favorite part about playing the harp is probably figuring out the different sounds you can make because harps can evoke a variety of emotions. All of the harmonies always come together so beautifully which is really nice.”

Wingspan: What is your favorite thing about being in Orchestra?

Hussain: “I think the best part is the sense of community, and also just coming together at the end of the day and creating beautiful music. There’s a lot of moving parts but it comes together so nicely.”

Wingspan: Do you intend on continuing in music once you graduate high school, or possibly into a career?

Hussain: “Definitely not professionally, but I’d love to keep playing as a hobby. There are tons of great local orchestras and I’d love to participate in those when I’m older, even if it’s not for a job or school”
