Diana is excited to collaborate with Stephen Horne again, a composer who understands the poetry and wide scope of the harp.
An award-winning musical artist performing worldwide, Dr. Diana Rowan’s playing and compositions integrate global musical traditions. Born in Ireland and raised by an Irish diplomat, Diana has traveled, lived and performed on six continents. As a natural outgrowth of this inspiration, her music interweaves global music, art, spirituality and mythology.
She can be heard on many CDs and soundtracks, including her solo albums “Panta Rhei”, “The Bright Knowledge” and the forthcoming “As Above, So Below”. Diana’s 30+ year performance career spans venues such as the World Harp Congress in Australia, Washington D.C.’s Smithsonian, the U.S. Embassy in Vietnam and Eastern European cathedrals.
Diana understands the healing power of music and plays in hospitals and healing centers via her company Sage Harpists. She also performs regularly via Bread & Roses for audiences who don’t normally experience live music, from preschools to maximum security prisons.
Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, Diana holds a Ph.D. in Music Theory (world harp composition techniques), plus an M.M. in Piano Performance (classical). She presents workshops, lectures worldwide and runs Bright Knowledge Academy, an online college for dedicated musicians. Diana’s teaching focuses on making breakthroughs in manifesting high-level creativity, overcoming blocks like performance anxiety and building artistic community. dianarowan.com
