Milburn resident Odarka Polanskyj Stockert returns to the Farmstead in a family-friendly concert which will include works by T. O'Carolan and other material of the Celtic tradition. An accomplished harpist with a repertoire spanning the centuries, from classical to Broadway to folk, Ms. Stockert performs on both the concert pedal harp and the folk harp, and has been playing professionally since the early 1980’s. She was a long time student of celebrated concert harpist, the late Leone Paulson, of South Orange, with whom she performed as a member of the Paulson Harp Ensemble. She spent several summers in Dublin, Ireland, in workshop studies and participating in the O’Carolan Irish Harp and Granard Harp Competitions, winning awards and honors in both.

She is also a collaborator of the Yara Arts Group based at the La Mama, ETC in New York and has performed in many Yara events and productions. Additionally, she is a founding member of Glendalough’s Muse, a celtic flute and harp duo and Suenos del Alma, a latin-inspired harp and violin duo.

The farmhouse is wheelchair accessible.  Anyone anticipating the need for additional accessibility services may make a request by sending an e-mail to admin@farmsteadarts.org in advance.

Funds for these events have been made possible in part by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State, a partner agency of the National Endowment for the Arts, through the State/County Partnership Local Arts Program Grant administered by The Somerset County Cultural & Heritage Commission.
