Whitney Dobyns resides in Roanoke, Virginia in heart of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains.
She studied harp performance at Liberty University with Heidi O’Gara and at the

As a member of the chamber group Obligato and the harp and recorder duo Musica Gallica, she performs in a variety of venues across Southwest and Central Virginia. An enthusiastic exponent of both classical and folk harp, Whitney teaches traditional harp at Hollins University and maintains a private studio of youth and adult harp students in Roanoke.
