It’s the most wonderful time of year ….
Preservation New Jersey welcomes Divine Angels Harp Duet Gloria Galante and Mary Bryson, bringing in the season with their magical sound of Heavenly Harps for the Holidays.

Versatile and dynamic as a performer, deeply committed to
teaching and to using the harp as an instrument of healing, Gloria
Galante (www.gmgstudios.com) is inspiring. Ms. Galante has a music ministry as she mentors students on each level (5 years to 83 years range her students ages), as well as plays in hospitals and hospices. Gloria, CMP, certified music practitioner plays for Crossroads Hospice as the Gift of the Day Program.

She has toured worldwide playing Classical, Jazz, Latin, African
and pop as well as appearing with such greats as Jose Feliciano,
Diana Ross, Frank Sinatra, Jr., and Luther Vandross.

Gloria is a member of Moog Endorsed artist the Divine Hand
ensemble.net performing Opera music repertoire. Equally
dedicated and experienced as an educator, Professor Galante is
the founder of WCU College of Arts and Humanities CAH/Harp
program (now in its 30th year). Gloria is the director of the WCU
Harp Ensemble, a Musicopia ensemble leader, and serves on
the prestigious PA Council on the Arts as a teaching artist.

Along with 30 recordings and compositions, Gloria has released
two therapeutic CDs dedicated to raising funds for Susan G.
Komen for the Cure. She is a certified CMP and advisor (from
Music for Healing and Transition).

She is making history as the first CMP- certified music
practitioner to play for IVF patients to reduce anxiety during
transfers at Toll Center Abington Hospital. She participated as a

a 2 year powered study completed by Dr. Barmat.

Currently, Ms. Galante is available to provide therapeutic music
