In addition to conducting the choir at State and another at a church in Half Moon Bay, Harnly has performed as a soloist accompanied by piano and organ. She also plays with other groups including the Bay Bells and the Marching Handbell Choir, which has performed in the Rose Bowl and Calgary Stampede parades. ...
