Personal Summary / Bio

Historical harpist Paula Fagerberg appears regularly at university concert halls and early music festivals within and outside of the United States. Active as a soloist, lecturer, chamber musician, and a continuo player in Baroque chamber and opera orchestras, she specializes in the harps and repertoire of the late Renaissance, Baroque, and Classical eras. The former editor of the Journal of the Historical Harp Society, Paula has given solo harp performances at the U.S. Embassy in Stockholm as well as at the private residence of the U.S. ambassador to Sweden. Recent projects include a concert on 200-year-old single-action pedal harps at Oxford University, England, and a concert tour of Perú and Bolívia (including the Misiones de Chiquitos festival) featuring colonial Latin American music played on the Spanish arpa de dos órdenes. Paula won a full scholarship to attend graduate school at Indiana University’s Early Music Institute, where she studied the art of continuo with lutenist Nigel North and historical harps with Andrew Lawrence-King. She also holds a B.Mus. in historical harp performance from Clayton, where she was mentored by lutenist Lyle Nordstrom, named a Spivey Scholar, and awarded the honor of The University System of Georgia Outstanding Scholar for her graduating class. Paula is based out of Atlanta, Georgia, where she lives with her husband and their two small children.
