15 SECOND HARP
In February 2016 Olivia launched 15 Second Harp: a social media project to encourage people to write for her instrument by sending her 15 seconds of music to play. To date she has recorded and posted approximately 500 submissions online sent from all around the world.
In 2017 the project was shortlisted for a Royal Philharmonic Society Award.
