My
Story

📍 Boston, Massachusetts, USA

Hello! My name is Lishan and I am a Singaporean harpist currently living in Boston, Massachusetts. My love for the harp has spurred countless projects, performances and opportunities internationally, and I work towards showcasing this beautiful instrument in new, different and unexpected ways.

My most recent projects include participating in RH Prestige Awards (Artistic) Category and attaining the Excellence Performance Award for “Crossing” by Phang Kok Jun together with harpist Karen Tay. I have also been awarded Honorable Mentions for the 2020 Brookline Symphony Orchestra's and 2019 Boston Conservatory Orchestra's Concerto Competition. My YouTube video of recreating video game sounds from "Among Us" on the Harp is currently at 2.19 million views.

I began my harp journey at the age of 13, and have since trained at Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts, Royal College of Music and the Boston Conservatory at Berklee with Dr June Han, Ina Zdorovetchi and Huang Yu-Hsin. I am currently pursuing my Doctor of Musical Arts at

New England Conservatory under BSO harpist Jessica Zhou.
