Harold Rapp 111 lives in Denver Co. started playing at a young age. His parents brought him a sax. He said I enjoyed playing, but his interest was being a marine biologist. But his mom persuaded him to continue playing music. Harold's music is a melting pot of R&B, Hip Hop, Gospel and Jazz.
His latest CD called "Set Apart" conveys his belief that in life, there is nothing that you can't accomplish with God.
Harold is a strong supporter of music in the public school. Enjoy the conversation with Alto Saxophonist Harold Rapp 111.
