2013 Update: Harpbeat's 2013 Summer Concert "Can You Dig It, Baby", features several songs and fun routines to support the 2013 theme of "Dig Into Reading".

Donna Novack and the award-winning children's music of Harpbeat create fun family concerts that children and their parents can enjoy together. Donna brings a unique musical sound to original children's songs, as well as classic tunes, as she combines her large harp with other instruments.

A concert by Harpbeat is very interactive and the audience is encouraged to join in on dances and sing-a longs. There is also lots of opportunity for curious kids to try their hand at a percussion instrument and play along to the music.

Harpbeat has been entertaining kids across Michigan for over 10 years, and the music of Harpbeat has been awarded the Creative Child Magazine's seal of excellence. Additional, Donna Novack has won several John Lennon Writing Awards for her original children's music. Music from their Harpbeat Around the World show is featured on Harpbeat's acclaimed CD, available at Amazon.com.
