Why do so few people play the harp?
My sweet daughter wants to know why relatively so few people play the harp? Is it because the harp is so heavy to cart around? Or is there a more complicated answer, like there just isn’t that much music written for the harp, it’s not a symphony instrument, or it hasn’t been around as long as the oboe?
