Called the “Yo-Yo Ma of the harp (Atlanta-Journal Constitution),” Bridget Kibbey is a recipient of an Avery Fisher Career Grant, the Classical Recording Foundation's Young Artist Award, a Salon de Virtuosi Grant, winner of Concert Artist Guild's International Competition,  and Astral Artist Auditions. 

Just this month, Bridget was named a recipient of NYU’s Center for Ballet and the Arts’  Virginia B. Toulmin Fellowship for Women Leaders in Dance. She will be collaborating with Katarzyna Skarpetowska to craft a new ballet set to André Caplet’s Conte Fantastique for harp soloist and strings, based on Edgar Allen Poe’s Mask of the Red Death. 

She has toured and recorded with Dawn Upshaw and Placido Domingo for SONY Records and Deutsche Grammaphon; and, her own solo debut album, Love is Come Again, was named one of the Top Ten Releases by Time Out New York.

Bridget is featured annually with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, the Knights Chamber Orchestra, and Camerata Pacifica on the West Coast. Alongside standard chamber music and recital work, Bridget spearheads and tours cross-genre collaborations that reignite the concert harp. Upcoming seasons launch tours with Mandolinist Avi Avital, the Dover Quartet, Chalaca (alongside Colombian jazz giants Samuel Torres and Benito Meza), and a world-premiere concerto consortium with five orchestras featuring a new harp concerto by João Luiz Rezende.
