Singaporean-trained harpist Bryan Lee strums the right notes with a homecoming tour.
AMONG classical instruments, few are as iconic as the harp. It was this that drew Bryan Lee to the instrument as his medium of choice to explore classical music. The 21-year-old had started training on piano at age four, then dabbled with violin before finding his true calling.
“I wanted something special and the harp really stood out and called to me. I’m a Christian, and harp is a very historic biblical instrument, like with King David and his harp,” says Lee, who now plays a hulking 40kg, Lyon & Healy Style 23 Natural concert harp.
