Tag: Chloe Tula

Since making her solo debut with the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra at the age of sixteen, Chloe Tula has established herself as a prizewinning harpist. Last season, she won the opportunity of her concerto debut with the New World Symphony, in performances of Glière’s Concerto for Harp, in which her “precision and verve were manifest” (South Florida Classical Review). In 2014, she won the Anne Adams Awards, a biennial national competition for solo harpists sponsored by the American Harp Society, as well as first prize in the Mildred Milligan Harp Competition.

As a scholarship recipient, Chloe Tula has attended the Aspen Music Festival and School for two summers, where she studied with Nancy Allen (Principal Harp, New York Philharmonic) and Anneleen Lenaerts (Principal Harp, Vienna Philharmonic).

In demand for the musicality and clarity she brings to the orchestra, her orchestral engagements have included performances with the Houston Symphony and the Santa Fe Opera. She has worked with conductors from all over the world, including Michael Tilson Thomas, Robert Spano, Kenneth Montgomery, Mark Wigglesworth, Pablo Heras-Casado, and Stéphane Denève. She also has had the privilege of sharing the stage with international legends Yo-Yo Ma and Gil Shaham. Comfortable as an artist outside of the classical realm, Ms. Tula has immensely enjoyed performing with Pink Martini, the Miami-based Nu Deco Ensemble, Ben Folds, and Jacob Collier.
