Praised for her “superb technical acumen and sensitive musicality” (South Florida Classical Review), Grace Browning has established herself as a versatile ensemble harpist, dynamic soloist, and passionate teaching artist. Equally at home with both symphonic and operatic repertoire, Browning was appointed principal harp of the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra in 2017 and The Santa Fe Opera Orchestra in 2015. She can be heard on Grammy Award–winning recordings by both ensembles: American Rapture and The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs, respectively.
As guest principal harp, Browning has performed with The Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, the Houston Symphony, and, most recently, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra on its 2023 North American tour. An avid chamber musician, she appears regularly at the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival and with the Society for Chamber Music in Rochester; she also curates her own annual Santa Fe summer series, Chamber Music at San Miguel Chapel, which is held in the oldest chapel in the continental United States.
In her spare time, Browning enjoys spending time with family, teaching yoga, and spoiling her sweet rescue animals, Annie and Pippa.
