About Dan Levitan

Principal Harpist Dan Levitan began playing harp in his high school orchestra in Philadelphia as a freshman. His two-year plus preparation of some of the most challenging repertoire as well as his participation in the 10th International Harp Contest in Israel gave Dan the knowledge to perform as well as the experience of performing on the highest level of music. Dan has California professional orchestra from Mendocino to Carmel. He is the principal harpist for Symphony San Jose, Santa Rosa and Marin symphonies, as well as the Carmel-Bach Festival.

As a harp coach, he is engaged by the Golden State Youth Orchestra (GSYS), as well as San Jose Youth Symphony (SJYS). He has coached at Sonoma State University, U.C. Berkeley, El Camino Youth Orchestra, and the California Youth Symphony. In addition to teaching his private students, he was appointed September 2022 as the Lecturer in Harp at Stanford University.

One of Dan’s favorite composers is Ravel. “He writes for the harp as if he played the instrument. His music is idiomatic for the harp. He composed one of my favorite pieces to perform, as well as to listen to: The Introduction and Allegro for Solo Harp, with Flute, Clarinet and String Quartet Accompaniment.”
