“Janet’s own harp performance was a real treat- the music just rippled effortlessly from her strings.”

Gerry ServienteFounder & Past Director, Somerset Harp Festival

Ray Pool

“Witman did a wonderful solo set, including a really devishly complex jazzy piece by Scottish harpist Savourna Stevenson called, “Emily’s Calling” – a piece that showed off Janet’s lever harp “chops of death.”

Kathy Chanik"Harp Column" Conference Report

“The concert that sticks in my mind the most was on the last day, when Janet Witman led the Somerset Harp Ensemble in a program of her fun and fascinating arrangements. Not the usual, occassionally dull ensemble stuff- great rhythms and special effects added interest.”

“Thank you for playing at Ron’s memorial service. The music was absolutely wonderful, and those musically educated were effusive in their praise. The harp music was the shell that held the service together, and I was absolutely entranced.”

Wendy Bashford

“Thank you for a great concert. It’s so fun for me to work with super-talented musicians. Playing the Mozart Flute and Harp Concerto was like having Mozart himself sitting there- so beautiful!
