Maddie

Madeline Rose Link has been playing the traditional harp for eight years, learning exclusively through the Celtic aural tradition (she learns by listening, not by reading music). This suits Maddie’s needs since she is visually impaired. She has a particular interest in composition, so many of the tunes she performs are her own arrangements.

Maddie played a solo show in the Old Moravian Chapel during Musikfest 2012. She received the Celtic Cultural Alliance's Music Scholarship -- awarded to a student who seeks to preserve the culture through music -- in that same year. She appeared on WFMZ's Music Monday, and plays for numerous social events throughout the Lehigh Valley.

Maddie attends Allentown Central Catholic High School and is an all-honors student. She is an avid traveler, having been to Africa, China and many countries in Europe. 

In 2012, Maddie was matched with her guide dog through the Mira Foundation -- the only accredited program in the world that matches kids under 17 with guide dogs. She is one of only fifteen US students her age to have the benefit of a guide dog, and the only one attending a Catholic school.

She loves music, reading, history, travel and her dogs. In addition to continuing her musical studies, Maddie hopes to pursue a career in teaching and diplomatic service, working for peace through understanding world religions.
