DALE HENDERSON   Described by Yo-Yo Ma as “a very gifted musician, a natural cellist” Dale Henderson began studying cello when he was five. He enjoyed regular performances as a chamber musician, soloist, and orchestra cellist, and made his professional solo debut at thirteen with the Buffalo Philharmonic and conductor Eiji Oue. In 1993, at the invitation of Sir Yehudi Menuhin, Dale attended the International Menuhin Music Academy in Gstaad, Switzerland. A graduate of the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, Dale took his cello to the subways of New York in 2010  in an effort to champion classical music and deliver it to a wider audience. Five years later, those first impromptu “Bach in the Subways” concerts sparked a global Bach movement on five continents, inspiring thousands of musicians to play pop-up concerts in over 140 cities in 40 countries. He currently lives in New York City.

ELISABETH REMY JOHNSON was appointed principal harpist of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra in 1995. She holds the endowed Carl and Sally Gable Chair, and also held the honorary UPS Community Service Chair for 2006-07. With the Atlanta Symphony, Elisabeth has performed concertos by Debussy, Handel, Mozart and Ginastera. Winner of first-place awards in competitions of the American Harp Society and the American String Teachers Association, she is also a NFAA/ARTS awardee. She graduated from Harvard University Phi Beta Kappa with a double major in Music and French. Her harp studies were with Ann Hobson Pilot in Boston and Alice Chalifoux at the Salzedo Summer Harp Colony in Camden, Maine. Elisabeth is co-founder of the Urban Youth Harp Ensemble, a program serving 55 students from 7 schools in the Atlanta Public School system, and was artistic director  from 2000 to 2010. For this work she received Atlanta’s Channel Eleven Community Service Award and the TBS Pathfinder’s Award. In fall of 2009, Elisabeth was awarded the Atlanta Business Chronicle’s “Up & Comers Award,” also known as “40 under 40,” showcasing young community leaders in Atlanta.
