American Harp Society - Timmy Kosaka
  • Classical music Timmy Kosaka plays Variations on Sakura on the Harp at a recent recital for the American Harp Society Greater Seattle Chapter. Timmy started to play the harp and piano when he was five. He was taught by his mother, Kate Kosaka. He is now 11 and has performed at more than 30 places in Washington, Vancouver BC and Bangkok, Thailand. He performed his first one hour concert when he was eight at a church in Tacoma in 2006. That same year, he was also the guest soloist at Mr. Bronn Journey's Christmas Harp Concert. Timmy was awarded the KidsDay Salute Award by the City of Auburn in 2004 for his contribution to the society with his harp music. In 2007, he was awarded by the American Who's Who Association for his Academic Excellence. That year, Timmy was also filmed by 3ABN, a Christian television network, in a TV series called "Grandma's House" as a guest harpist playing four selections for a tea party. In February, Timmy was the guest pianist and harpist at pianist Jee Wong's Benefiting Concert, which helped raise money for a mission trip to Africa. Even though Timmy enjoys playing different type of music, his goal is to use music as a ministry and to share his love of music and bring joy to other people's life.
