Alysa, born in Taipei in 2010, discovered her passion for the harmonica at the age of eight when she joined her school’s harmonica team. At ten, she began learning the chromatic harmonica from Mr. Chao-Teng Chang. Her talent quickly flourished, leading to exciting opportunities. She was invited to perform a harmonica concerto with a string orchestra at Xingan Elementary School’s 90th-anniversary celebration and at the Rotary Club’s End Polio Now Charity Concert in 2023. Additionally, Alysa triumphed in the chromatic harmonica solo category with the 1st prize at the 2023 Taiwan Harmonica Music Festival.
Alysa is also a key member of the renowned 111 Trio, an ensemble featuring harmonica, cello, and piano, working together since 2022. In 2023, the trio won 1st prize in the Modern Music category at the same festival and were selected for Yasuo Watani’s master class, highlighting their dedication to musical growth.
“The Laelaps 48 Stellar allows me to fully express the performance tone I aim to achieve when playing the harmonica, whether in solo performances, duets with the cello or piano, or collaborating with an orchestra. In particular, my performance in the treble octave has received significant praise from the orchestra.
I want to express my appreciation to the skilled artisans at Laelaps who, after comprehending my musical preferences and needs, recommended the ideal Laelaps 48 Stellar for me!”
