Plan your event. Harpists are a perfect choice for intimate settings such as a wedding ceremony or background music to set a desired ambience for your event. Receptions, cocktail hour, wine tastings, dinner or holiday parties can all be made to shine with elegant harp music.

Time & price. Each event has it's own distinct personality and price. Quotes are based on requested time and location.
Arrival time: One hour prior to the performance to set up and tune.
What is included in a
Prelude: Background music 20/30 minutes as guests arrive.
Processional/Entrance: Music for the attendants and bride/groom to walk down the aisle.
Ceremony: Music for unity candle, sand ceremony, etc.
Recessional: One song performed as newly weds walk back down aisle.
Postlude: Music following the ceremony as guests mingle or retreat to reception, dependent upon the length of time arranged in the contract.
Additional time: Couples often miss the prelude music while they are preparing for the wedding to begin. Opt for an additional 30-60 minutes to enjoy the music after the ceremony during a cocktail hour or photo session.
Schedule a free consultation: Choose your ceremony music.
Do you perform with others? I perform regularly with violinist, Cecilia Yale and cellist, Lou Groffman. String instruments blend very well together and will bring your event to another level. Combos currently available:
Can you perform outside? Yes! If your dream is to have an outdoor event, ensure there is a flat, hard surface; moderate temperatures are required due to the delicate nature of the harp. You'll need to make sure the harp is under cover & protected from the elements, including direct sunlight.
How far in advance should I book? Plan 6-12 months in advance of your date. Peak wedding season is May-September, start inquiring early to hire on a Saturday.
What equipment is required? I am fully self-contained, with the exception of a tent or shelter from the elements. For large events, I have either a small cordless or a larger electric amplifier.
Can I request a song? Absolutely! I'm happy to take requests if I can find sheet music online. Not all music lends itself to the harp, I will give you an honest opinion if it will sound good on the harp.
