BOILING SPRINGS, N.C.—The Gardner-Webb University School of Performing and Visual Arts is pleased to present distinguished harpist Sivan Magen in concert on Thursday, Feb. 23 at 8:00 p.m. in Blanton Auditorium. The concert is free to the public.

Magen teaches harp on the faculty at Gardner-Webb University. In fact, Gardner-Webb student harpist Hannah Blalock, who has won several major competitions, travels to New York twice a month to study with Magen.

Since January 2007, Magen has been a founding member of the Israeli Chamber Project, a group that performs in outreach venues as well as traditional concert halls throughout the USA and Australia.  He has also been invited to serve as a member of the jury of the first Netherlands International Harp Competition and the Lyon and Healy Awards, and served as head of the 2007 National Harp Contest in Taiwan.

Magen is also gaining a reputation as a sought-after teacher, teaching masterclasses in the U.S. (The Juilliard School, Duquesne University, University of Texas) and around the world.
