Melissa Gallant is a classically trained harpist from right here in good ol’ Indiana! She has been playing music for over 30 years! She has earned her bachelor’s degree from Indiana University, her masters from Butler University, and has studied with other amazing artists such as Susann McDonald. Melissa has experience playing for schools, communities, and orchestras. She performs with the Lafayette Symphony Orchestra, the Fishers Chamber Orchestra, and the Indiana Wind Symphony most often, but she has also been one of our Arts for Learning artists for 17 years! Melissa was the first harpist to perform on the Palladium Stage at the Carmel Center of Performing Arts.
Melissa can play at a variety of different occasions as well. Some perfect settings for her harp music are weddings, receptions, anniversary parties, or even holiday parties!
If you are interested in having Melissa come to your school for a performance, you can book her through our website under “Artist Index.”
