About Harpist Maria Duhova Trevor

Harp will enchant your guests, I play wide variety of music, so everyone will enjoy some of their favorites!

MARIA DUHOVA TREVOR Slovak – American harpist Maria Duhova Trevor has quickly established herself as one of the most sought-after and versatile harpists in the Midwest. She is the principal harpist of the Missouri Symphony, Springfield Symphony Orchestra and the Springfield Regional Opera as well as adjunct instructor of harp at the University of Missouri. In Columbia, she collaborates with local musicians in chamber music performances including Flute and Harp Duo and Cello and Harp Duo -“51 Strings”. She also gives solo recitals in colleges and performing arts series throughout Midwest. As a wedding ceremony musician she has provided music for more than two hundred couples. Maria takes a personal approach to every wedding starting with a meeting with bride and groom and accommodating requests for their special songs. In 2017 Maria compiled her favorite love songs into her “Romantic Harp” CD. Maria’s philosophy of the healing power of music has brought her a large following and she performs for many different types of events and service groups each year, including bringing harp music to the homeless and the mentally and physically challenged. She is now receiving national attention for her special initiative ‘Harp and Healing’ that began in 2011 and still continues today. Harp and Healing is 45 minutes of live harp music and spoken word aimed to help people going thorough life’s difficulties such as grief, illness, divorce. Harp and Healing provides an environment conducive to emotional and physical renewal. Some of the music from this ministry eventually became a best-selling album “Healing Harp”. As a teacher she brings a wealth of experience to reach a broad age range of harp students. She maintains an active studio, and her students mirror their teacher’s dedication to performances outside of the box and out of mainstream locations. Her students include young classical players who study solo and orchestral literature, but also include singer-songwriters, folk harp performers, as well as those numerous adults just playing the harp for the sheer joy and pleasure of making music. As an example of thinking outside of the box, she was winner of the 2011 Missouri’s Got Talent Contest performing crossover jazz/classical harp repertoire. Born in the Slovak Republic, Maria Duhova Trevor holds Master’s degree in Harp Performance from the Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts in Bratislava. Prior to that she studied harp performance at the Conservatory of Music in Zilina. She completed her studies there performing the Mozart Concerto for Flute and Harp with the Slovak Sinfonietta. During her Conservatory studies she made several broadcast recordings of solo harp works for the Slovak Radio. From 1996 to 1999 Maria was Principal Harpist of the Bohuslav Martinu Philharmonic in the Czech Republic, with whom she toured throughout Europe. In 1999 she was a featured recitalist at the Seventh World Harp Congress, and later that year, she was appointed harpist of the Slovak National Opera. From 2002 to 2005 Maria was a recording harpist for the Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra with whom she participated in numerous of contemporary, movie and video game music recordings as well as joined SRSO on their tour to Japan. In 2001 she premiered and recorded “The Angel’s Harp”, a new work by American composer David Ott for harp and orchestra. In the United States Maria has been principal harpist of the Missouri Symphony Orchestra since 2001 and has been a featured soloist on numerous occasions as well as a regular chamber music collaborator with musicians from around the country. As an orchestral harpist she has collaborated with many great artists including Art Garfunkel, Johnny Mathis, Ben Vereen, Ben E. King, Eileen Ivers and the Texas Tenors. Maria lives in Columbia, Missouri with her husband, international conductor and teacher Kirk Trevor, and their three children.

Maria played the harp along with Brooksie on the flute. They did an amazing job. Several people complemented the live music for the ceremony and how well they played. Maria was amazing at meeting with my husband and I before hand to go over what music we wanted and recommended amazing music to be played for specific situations. She was well organized and great to work with!

Maria played the harp at our wedding on NYE in St. Louis. She did a wonderful job and all of our guests loved the unique music. Maria was super friendly and accommodating to work with. She was able to play every single song we requested and was able to give us some great suggestions as well. She was very knowledgeable about the Catholic marriage ceremony, which was helpful. Cannot recommend Maria enough for a special event!
