Native Texan and graduate of the University of Houston, Becky Baxter uses her life long passion for all styles of worship music by serving as a part-time music minister/director and accompanist at All Saints Episcopal Church in Stafford, TX. She is also a professional harpist and specializes in historically informed performance practices on Italian and Spanish renaissance and baroque harps as well as the modern pedal harp.
