Louise is a regular guest of the Amaretti Chamber Orchestra, and was warmly praised for her appearance with them at the Buxton Fringe last year:

“The concert opened with Debussy’s Danse Sacreé et Danse Profane with the highly experienced harpist Louise Thomson. Debussy had written the piece for a chromatic harp, that is a harp with a string for every note. Louse however played a conventional harp which meant she had to make a prodigious number of pedal changes but which she managed seemingly without effort. The result was stunning.

Having secured such a fine soloist the programme went on with pieces for solo harp, Pierné’s Impromptu-Caprice Opus 9 and an exciting arrangement for harp of Gershwin’s American in Paris, demonstrating the versatility of the instrument and Louise’s mastery of it.” Peter Low, Buxton Advertiser
