Hyka-Berthelot is the Sinfonietta's Principal cellist and co- Principal cellist in the Baton Rouge Symphony Orchestra. To label her solo lyrical would be an understatement.

Hilda T. Gautier Britten, BayouHarpiste

As BayouHarpiste, I specialize in Weddings, Receptions, Religious Services, and Large Corporate & Social Events. I will work diligently to understand your preferences to provide eloquent music for your celebration. I believe a customers' musical needs are of the utmost importance. I am committed to meeting those needs. As a result, a high percentage of my musical business is from repeat customers and referrals. I welcome the opportunity to earn your musical trust. You deserve the best BayouHarpiste the music industry has to offer! At the tender of three, my parents Mr. and Mrs. Marion and Brenda Love Gautier saw there was great musical talent lying dormant within me. The decision was made for me to begin my musical venture by studying piano at the age of three under Dr. Linda Achacioso. At age four, my talent was taken to a new utopia by beginning formal training on the harp at Louisiana State University with Dr. Hye Yun Chung Bennett. By age five, operatic studies with Dr. Ostraqeliea and Ninfa Caruso was a prevelent part of my musical studies. My dream was to become a concert harpist and opera singer. God had a different plan. In 1990, hours after my mother's station wagon, affectionately called the "Harp Mobile", was stolen with my harp music inside, I performed theMalotte’s Lord’s Prayer before an audience of over 3000 campers at the Louisiana Baptist Youth Encampment. It was that transforming performance that erupted a new found passion, religious music. Rev. Charles T. Smith deemed my desire a reality and I became a part of the Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church Music Ministry in 1990 at age 12. My passion to perform religious works was tested by transposing hymns, arranging hymns, and playing by ear. There were no African-American hymns manuscripted for harp. Shiloh is one of the leading African-American baptist churches in the nation with a full-time African-American harpist on staff. In 1996 I graduated from Capitol High School holding a 4.0 GPA. My academic achievements bestowed upon me the honor of Valedictorian. My passion to continue the study of the harp was furthered in educational music endeavors through The Juilliard School of Music, Louisiana State University, and the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music. I am one of an elite number of African-American classically trained harpists. I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Music - Harp Performance. I have become an accomplished classical, professional harpist having attained the following accolades:I have studied and performed across the length and breath of the United States as a solo, classical harpist for various United States dignitaries and symphonic orchestras. I have also performed in various religious venues in the classical/religious realm. I have performed as principal or second chair harpist for the following symphonic orchestras: Baton Rouge Symphony Orchestra Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra Acadiana Symphony Orchestra Monroe Symphony Orchestra New Orleans Philharmonic Jackson Symphony Orchestra Meridian Symphony Orchestra Louisiana Youth Symphony Louisiana Youth Orchestra, World Youth Symphony Orchestra (Performed for The Olympics 1996 opening ceremony) Interlochen Arts Camp Eastern Music Festival •Performance Master Classes: The Juilliard School of Music Trinity University University of Michigan University of Minnesota Interlochen Arts Camp Guilford College University of Indiana University of Wisconsin Northwestern University •American Harp Society Member •Bayou Harp Society Member •Susan McDonald Harp Competition Winner •American Harp Society Competition Finalist •Compose and Arrange Gospel Music compatible for the Classical Harp •Staff Harpist, Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church, Rev.
