Grace Wong Leaving RPO

An Accomplished Career

Grace Wong, Principal Harpist of the RPO since 1979, is one of the four RPO musicians who will retire at the close of the 2017-18 season this spring.

Grace earned her undergraduate and graduate degrees at Oberlin Conservatory and Manhattan School of Music, respectively. Prior to joining the RPO, she had been the second prizewinner at the Fifth International Harp Contest in Israel in 1973. Including a debut recital at Carnegie Recital Hall in 1974, Grace has appeared as a soloist throughout the United States, toured Canada and the Far East, and has given a series of recitals in South America.

Grace is currently on the faculty of Hochstein School of Music and Dance and maintains a private studio.

Thank you for the music, Grace – we’ll miss you at the RPO!
