Judy Loman is a 1956 graduate of the Curtis Institute of Music, where she studied with Carlos Salzedo. Principal harp of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra from 1960 to 2001, she retired from that orchestra to devote her time to teaching, concertizing, and publishing her numerous transcriptions and arrangements. A frequent soloist with the Toronto Symphony, she has also appeared as guest soloist with major orchestras in North America and Europe.
Ms. Loman has commissioned several harp works from Canada's foremost composers and has introduced these compositions worldwide through recordings and in solo recitals throughout North America, Europe, Israel, and Japan. Her extensive discography has proven valuable to harpists and composers as material from which to study harp compositions of all generations.
Ms. Loman's students fill positions in major orchestras throughout North America and Europe, and she has adjudicated at the International Harp Competition in Israel and the U.S.A. International Harp Competition.
Professor of harp at the University of Toronto and faculty member at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto, Ms. Loman joined the faculty of the Curtis Institute of Music in 1998.
