Cubberley Elementary students were treated recently with a 45-minute harp concert by Sarah Davis, courtesy of the Musical Merit Foundation of Greater San Diego's "Close Encounters" program.
Davis played songs from several genres, including current tunes such
as Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi.” Students also learned about the
history of the harp and how it works. Davis is completing her last year
at the University of Southern California Thornton School of Music on
