Harpsody, a unique Harp Duo (Tomoko Sato and Kaffee T. Mimun) based in Orange/Los Angeles County, has been performing in museums, churches, and benefit functions since 2003.
Our broad repertoires include classical, contemporary, new-age, popular, as well as
our own arrangements from other instruments. When requested in advance, we customize and arrange a piece for two harps.
In 2006 Harpsody has been awarded a Grant from the Co-op Press Commission Assistance Grand Program for composer, Sy Brandon, to write a work for two harps. Dr. Sy Brandon holds the rank of professor emeritus of music from Millersville University, Millersville, PA where he taught low brass, composition, orchestration, music history, electronic music, and music industry for twenty four years.

The piece, Sonatasia was featured at Harpsody concert on September 15, 2006 at the SalviharpsInc in Anaheim.
