Yumiko Endo Schlaffer was a visiting harpist, and the evenings star performance.
She has a masters degree from the prestigious Julliard School of music New York, and is the recipient of numerous awards, including first Prize in the Japan International Harp Competition. She was also honored to be asked to perform at the Imperial Palace for Her Majesty The Empress and Her Royal Highness.
She is an extraordinary harpist with a long list of credits, and a sweet very approachable young lady. Thanks for posing for my blog Endo.
