We had a fantastic Grand Opening for our new carbon fiber fabrication facility last month, on August 9th! The day kicked off with a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony hosted by the Henderson County Chamber of Commerce. Harpists, members of the local business community, friends, and family were here to help us celebrate, taste our harps, and see how all the magic happens.
The local press, both TV and paper, were here to cover the event and share the exciting news with the local community. Dave and Christian led guests on tours through the facility as they, and members of the production team, explained each step in the process of building a carbon fiber harp. Pedal harpist Chiara Capobianco came from Charlotte, North Carolina to play our Starlight concert grand pedal harp for all to enjoy as they mingled. Sue Richards, Ann Elizabeth, and Jean Mason, from the Mountain Folk Harp Society serenaded our guest along their tour.
Our harp tasting room was alive with chatter and music as guests enjoyed getting to see, hear, and play the lineup of Heartland harp models. They were also grateful for the chance to see a behind-the-scenes look at our carbon fiber harp-building process. All-in-all it was a great event—Chamber staff even remarked that it was one of the best Grand Opening Ribbon Cuttings that they’ve ever helped host. Thank you to all who made the day possible!
