About me

By playing my original rhythmic compositions for harp and voice, I like to breake stereotypes around this ancient instrument and bring it into a modern context. With my warm voice and versatile harp play, I enjoy interpreting jazz and pop songs in a unique way. My own compositions are deeply touching and invite the audience into a soulful river of sounds.

As a harpist and singer, I performed at concerts and festivals in 14 different countries. I started playing the harp at the age of 5 and I was already performing concerts and winning competitions from a young age. I took my passion for that instrument to a higher level and studied harp and music pedagogy in the Music Academy in Freiburg (DE) and the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki (FI). After graduating from my Bachelor, I moved to Aalborg, where I currently study a master in rhythmic harp at the Royal Academy of Music.

In addition to my classical training I began to arrange music from all over the world for the harp. To expand my repertoire, I took numerous master classes with international harpists. Among others, I learned from Diego Laverde Rojas (COL), Sivan Megan (ISR), Imogen Barford (UK), Isabelle Perrin (NOR), Paivi Severeide (FI), Edward Witzenburg (NL) and Park Stickney (USA).


To experience Vera Ambruster playing the harp offers the listener an encounter with something beyond the musical. Her gifts include inviting listeners into a space created around her as she merges improvisation with formal structures of the composition. (...) Through her interpretation of the musical material in each unique moment, she facilitates opportunities for individuals in the audience to open to a feeling that her music just gave them a part of themselves back

Vera is very innovative when she performs with her unique product in the form of harp and vocal at the same time. She is a bridge-builder between classical and rhythmic music, which meet in an extremely elegant and aesthetic way. While also being charming and very skilled at her job she is also good at understanding the target audience and delivering a product that fits the occasion perfectly.
