An active orchestra player, Irantzu has played with the Fhilarmonia Orchestra and Middletown Symphony in the USA, the Bilbao and Basque Symphony Orchestras, Galician Symphony Orchestra, the Real Fhilarmonia of Galicia in Spain as well as the Opera Piccolina, North London Sinfonia, the Watford Symphony Orchestra, the London Video Game Orchestra, Opera Up Close and the Guernsey Symphony Orchestra in the UK. As a chamber musician she has intensively performed in NYC and Spain, where she was a founding member of the Belle Epoque Ensemble for contemporary music. An advocator of contemporary music, she has premiered more than 40 pieces for ensemble and solo settings, most recently Paul Burnell’s Robot Picking Raspberries. Her performance of Technicolor for Harp and Electronics by Angélica Negrón can often be heard at the WQXR, the free radio of NYC. As a member of the Olyver New Music Collective, Irantzu premiered Pastoral Dream, a harp trio by M. Olyver, at St. James’s Church in London last September. After discovering the multidisciplinary performances during her studies at New York University, Irantzu started using literature and images in her performances, including: Notes on Words, her NYC Debut recital at Weill Hall -Carnegie Hall, Reflections in Spain, Merriment at the Artist Residency at Skimstone Arts in Newcastle, Illusions in High Wycombe with Violinist Dr. Sabina Rakcheyeva and Dawn of Shadows and Scintillation at the Fringe Festival in Bath presented by The Old Theatre Royal. Irantzu has been a teacher for ten years and she very much enjoys introducing the harp to all the communities. Her storytelling harp performance for children has been presented at The Oliver House School in South London as well as by The Little Concert at Canary Water Studios and Richmond. In mid October, she took part at the Oliver House School Fall Concert for children and most recently at the Ashwell House Center Christmas Carols Concert and the Christmas concert & Masses at St. Mary of the Angels. Originally from the Basque Country, Spain, Irantzu studied at the Reina Sofia Superior Music Conservatory in Madrid, at The Juilliard School (Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees) and at the New York University (Advance Certificate in Music Education). International prizes include: Best New Artist of the Year by Cultura Viva Association in Spain, First Prize at the Superior Category of the UFAM International Harp Competition in France and First Prize at the Artist International Special Presentations Awards in New York City. Irantzu moved to the UK in 2018 and she is a harpist for Music in Hospitals and Care, bringing the joy of life music across London and a deputy harpist performing over the Afternoon Tea at the Waldorf Hilton Hotel.

Irantzu played her harp at my daughter's wedding. I can highly recommend her. It was a pleasure working with her throughout the process. Not only is she a talented harpist who produces beautiful melodies, but she is friendly and helpful and goes the extra mile to make the experience perfect for the client. For example, at our wedding we wanted her to play some Asian music and she made her own arrangements of these and played them. Thank you very much, Irantzu Anisur

Thank you again for playing at our wedding, it really was wonderful and helped create the perfect ambience at our reception. All of our guests told us how much they enjoyed the music and also guessing the harp version of popular songs. Thank you again, we will definitely be recommending you to anyone interested. All the best Caroline
