Millennium Harp Quest

Harping for Harmony sponsors Millennium Quests for harpers. The concept is to declare a quest for a one-year period that will stretch your comfort zone as a musician and provide a community service to your locality.

Joining this program, I have declared my own Millennium Quest for 2003:

  I, Jo Morrison, declare my quest to become "Impromptu Millennium Harper for Maryland." I will strive to overcome my shyness to play when I am not booked or invited to, and instead will play impromptu performances wherever I have a harp and a reasonable location to play. This could be at a fast food place on the way to a gig or at a cemetery after a funeral or at a friend's house. It could also be in my own living room when I have guests over. It could end up being anywhere, anytime, and for any length of time. I will attempt to do this during 2003 every time opportunity arises, with a goal of doing this at least 25 separate times during the year.  

This Quest was declared March 13, 2003.
