About Our Logo

Harp Fusion

The HarpFusion logo was designed in 2018 by alumna, Audrey Cadogan, to represent elements of the Sonoran desert, the strings of the harp, and the colors of our group. We have included both the vintage blue of HarpFusion, representing our history and the work of Dr. Carrol McLaughlin, and a new royal blue to embrace new pathways for HarpFusion.
