Autumn began studying the harp with Stephanie Bennett when she was 7 years old then continued her studies with Ellie Choate in addition to having occasional lessons with other teachers such as Julie Ann Smith Phillips. Since moving from California to Massachusetts in 2014 she studies with Felice Pomeranz. Autumn has loved to perform ever since first beginning the harp and has played for numerous churches, weddings, luncheons and educational settings in addition to performing often with orchestras and chamber ensembles.
While in California, Autumn played harp with the Corona Symphony and was the harpist for the Song of the Angels Flute Orchestra. She performed Hanson’s Concerto for Flute, Harp and Strings (with David Shostac, flute) and the Handel Harp Concerto with them. She also recorded on their Live at St. James in the City album.

She also performs regularly with other area orchestras such as Brockton Symphony Orchestra, Symphony Pro Musica, the Metrowest Symphony, Boston Civic Symphony, and the Lincoln-Sudbury Civic Symphony.
Autumn also enjoys collaborating with her musical family on projects and performances. She collaborates with Maria Ramey on flute for Espressivo Flute and Harp, to provide beautiful and uplifting music with the goal of bringing peace and healing to those who hear it. They perform full concerts and provide music for weddings, luncheons and other settings.
Autumn wrote her first work for harp when she was 8 years old. She now continues to write works for solo instruments, chamber ensemble, orchestra, choir, and film.
Currently, Autumn is attending Berklee College of Music where she is earning a B.M. in Film Scoring and Composition with minors in Conducting and Spanish Arts and Culture.
Autumn loves to collaborate with other musicians and composers, learning as much as she can about other people and musical styles. In 2020 she studied Flamenco in Spain and composed and recorded “Es Verdad”, a song based on a poem by Federico Garcia Lorca.
