Becky Scherschell, Harpist
Becky Scherschell has been playing the harp professionally since the age of 12, and has inspired and delighted countless audiences in her long and interesting career. She has been playing wedding, party, dinner, symphony, and lecture/recital performances for over 30 years.

She received her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in harp from the University of North Texas. During her college years, she was a finalist in the American Harp Society National Harp Competition in San Diego, CA.

Ms. Scherschell is a busy freelance harpist, having played numerous performances with the Dallas and Fort Worth Symphony Orchestras, the Dallas and Fort Worth Opera Companies, the Fort Worth Dallas Ballet, and the pit orchestras for Dallas Summer Musicals, Casa Manana Musicals, and Six Flags Over Texas, as well as solo performances with the Texas Chamber Orchestra.

She performed nightly for nearly 14 years at the Anatole Hotel in Dallas in the L’Entrecote Restaurant, and has spent much of her time working in area recording studios, recording background music for radio and television commercials, radio IDs, films, TV shows, and CDs.

Some of her professional highlights include performances with Bob Hope, Harry Connick, Jr., Barry Manilow, Johnnie Mathis, Yanni, Natalie Cole, Bernadette Peters, Ray Charles, Three Dog Night, Moody Blues, Jerry Lewis, and a tour of the Southwest and Mexico with Frank Sinatra on his last concert tour before his death. She is also member of the Octavia Harp Ensemble, a performing and touring group of eight professional harpists, which has recorded 2 CDs.

Ms Scherschell is equally at home in the college classroom, where she divides her time between the Tarrant County College and the Dallas County Community College systems, teaching harp, piano, music history and music theory.
