Dan Levitan

Dan Levitan is Principal Harpist of three professional orchestras: Marin Symphony (since 1984), Symphony Silicon Valley (since its founding) and Ballet San Jose Silicon Valley.  In addition to having performed with San Jose Symphony as Principal Harpist from 1978 until its closure in 2002, he has performed with the San Francisco Symphony, Opera, and Ballet orchestras, and is sought after as a soloist with orchestras, choirs, and other ensembles throughout Northern California.

Mr. Levitan's concerto performances by Bach (Johann Christian), Boieldieu, Debussy, Ginastera, Gliere, Mozart, Ravel, Reinecke, and Saint Saens with orchestras throughout the San Francisco Bay Area have been highly praised by local critics, who write of his 'impeccable virtuosity" (San Jose Metro), "virtual perfection"(Marin Independent Journal) and "precision and élan" (Mercury News). Internationally, Mr. Levitan was invited to perform two works for harp and string quartet at the Seventh World Harp Congress in Prague, Czech Republic, and was a semi-finalist in the prestigious 10th International Harp Competition in Israel.
