Man Builds Healing Harp from Stand-Up Wheelchair

Published: March 12, 2012

Using a stand-up wheelchair that allowed him to build, calibrate, and tune at the highest places of this tall symphonic instrument, George Flores created a one-of-a-kind 47-string harp called The Healing Harp.

“I thought about the fact that harps are known around the world as being a healing instrument. I thought this would be a great opportunity to bring that same healing power to the world and all people with disabilities, including people with spinal cord injuries and disorders,” said Flores, who was paralyzed is a motorcycle accident in 2004.

The custom-built Venus Aria model Grand Concert Harp has a natural finish with hand painted soundboard, handpicked special veneers, and a new technology no other harp in the world has, which strengthens the overall structure and enhances the acoustic properties of the wood.
