"Although I have a bachelor's degree in music & composition, I have always focused my work on jazz. I have worked as a professional jazz musician in Louisiana since 1975. In 1980, I saw a public television special on the music of Brazil. I traveled there & began collecting Brazilian music. I played in a group called Sounds of Brazil with musicians from Cuba & I also studied Cuban music. My studies of Cuban & Brazilian music have had a profound effect on my own compositions."
Patrice's family is of celtic ancestry. She studied Celtic music with Irish harpists, Grainne Hambly, Janet Harbison & Maire Ni Chathasaigh , Scottish harpist, Billy Jackson, Breton harpists, Elisa Vellianiti & Cecile Corbel. She was a student of Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra harpist, Rachel Van Voorhees. She has a large repertoire of traditional Celtic music

Latin jazz harpist & composer, Patrice Fisher, has been performing and recording her own compositions since 1980. “An unexpected delight!” raves David Fricke of Rolling Stone Magazine. Gene Scaramuzzo of Gambit newspaper says of Arpa "There are many sides to this local composer/harpist. It's not unusual to see her play a staid classical gig in the morning and a smoky music club at night. Strong rhythms form the undercurrent of her instrumental music with Arpa."

Patrice Fisher was very talented and easy to work with. For my cocktail party, I wanted beautiful, ambient music, and that is what I got from Patrice Fisher's harp music. The party was a big success!
