Welcome to harpist Kaoru Arai-Colucci's website!

Thank you to everyone who supported my Maternity Leave Project! (You can check them all out on this playlist)
I am officially back at work! 
I have also started a (scarcely updated, because of the baby...) Postpartum Project (this playlist).
I hope to see you at concerts and events, which you can check out on the "Concerts" page. Thank you!!




I am now officially on (self-imposed, because I’m a freelancer…) maternity leave! This is literally the first time for me to not have to practice the harp for anything specific in my adult life for such a long period of time. Knowing myself quite well, I'm also a bit worried that I'll feel unproductive and / or anxious about not being an active part of society.

So I thought I'd make a project out of it - at least until the baby is here - to upload videos of me playing pieces I like, as much as possible. 1 video a day might be a bit ambitious but let's see how I do... at least it will prompt me to get up, out of my pajamas and look somewhat presentable :)
