Heather Cornelius is a harpist from St. Paul, Minnesota. Named an honorable mention in the American Harp Society Foundation’s 2020 Anne Adams Awards, she is currently pursuing her Doctor of Musical Arts in harp performance at the University of Minnesota. Her doctoral research project focuses on the trust-based relationship between teachers and students, and the importance of this relationship for students living with mental illnesses. Heather also regularly collaborates with composers, helping them to realize their creative vision on the harp. In 2018, she was awarded a grant from the American Harp Society to commission Harp and Guitar Sonata by composer and classical guitarist Nathan Cornelius.
Linda Chatterton has commissioned, recorded and premiered dozens of new works, including music by Edie Hill, Lu Pei, Abbie Betinis, Jocelyn Hagen, David Kechley, Wendy Wan-Ki Lee, Aaron Travers, Takuma Itoh, Brian Ciach and Roberto Sierra. She is a two-time recipient and the only flute soloist to win a McKnight Artist Fellowship for Performing Musicians, and she has received many prizes and awards from the Jerome Foundation, the Minnesota State Arts Board and the American Composers Forum. In addition to her concert schedule, Ms. Chatterton is highly regarded for her insightful master classes, and she has served as a mentor to music students at the University of Minnesota's College of Liberal Arts.
