Travel with the Bay Area Youth Harp Ensemble through an ancient Redwood forest and share our wonder and reverence for these awe-inspiring trees.
If you wish to experience these forests in person, learn more at http://www.humboldtredwoods.org. Consider making a donation to support the worthwhile work of this organization.
The music, titled “Into the Forest” was composed by Sylvia Woods and played by these amazing young women on a rainbow of Harpsicles by Rees Harps Inc. Filming took place in the Humboldt Redwoods of Northern California.
