Cape Town Harpist
Music has always been a part of Jana’s life through different platforms. She has been playing the harp for 17 years and it is her biggest passion in life. She commenced her music career at the age of six, and has participated in various competitions and music collaborations nationally and internationally through piano, harp and singing. She has done many of her own compositions and arrangements and love exploring with different genres of music.
An active orchestral harpist, Jana has performed with the South African National Youth Wind Orchestra, South African National Symphony Orchestra, Free State Symphony Orchestra, Stellenbosch University Symphony Orchestra, Stellenbosch Camarata, the Stuttgart Academic Orchestra (Germany), KOMPOS and Cape Philharmonic Orchestra. She is also the harpist of the MIAGI Orchestra which regularly represents South Africa in Europe at some of the best music halls and conservatoriums in the world.
Jana collaborates with different musicians and offers different ensemble options for events (i.e. with classical guitar/vocal/cello). At events, she performs her own compositions and improvises to provide more flexibility to support the ambience of the event. She does however also have a long list of songs that she can cover and regularly composes/customises music to a client’s specific needs.
