Welcome to Our Team!

Join us in welcoming Carmen Eppright and Flor Cruz to our team!

Carmen, the founding Program Manager, returns to Harmony Project KC after leaving to start a family in 2018! After attending every concert since her departure, she is excited to be back with the young musicians she developed seven years ago.

Flor joins the team as our new Student and Family Advocate! She is a bilingual flutist originally from Texas with Bachelors degrees in Performance and Music Education and a Masters of Arts in Music Performance.

Our team and students will miss Dr. Jesse Henkenseifken, who has left HPKC to pursue other artistic endeavors. We wish him the best on his journey!
