Calvin Arsenia has built a reputation for turning the arts world on its head. While the harp has allowed this Kansas City native to become a man of the world (gaining followings in Paris, Edinburgh, and at the Outlyre Harpist Festival in Austria), it’s his unique ability to craft a stimulating setting at his live shows that has all eyes fixed on this conspicuous musician and his breathtaking approach to harp music.

“Arsenia slips between the cracks of reality into an Alice in Wonderland kind of fantasy, while also drawing from his classical training.” -Jason Scott, Pop Dust Magazine

“Glowing with warmth, vulnerability, and a heavy heart, Arsenia’s intimate reflections depict the past and present wrestling within the individual as he endeavors to chart his own course in the world.” – Atwood Magazine

“…a charismatic 6-foot-7-inch harpist with natural stage command and knack for gilding gold and painting lilies.” – Tim Finn, INKC Magazine
