Felice owns and directs the popular harp referral network, the Gilded Harps, organizing events throughout New England and beyond. She has been very active in the American Harp Society, serving many roles, including chairman of the Board of Directors. Her American Harp Society Foundation Award, Kids for Camp, provides a summer camp experience for young, underprivileged harpists.
