*** Dreaming of the harp for your event?
I'm honored and delighted to provide a blissful musical experience tailored to you, with music that perfectly encapsulates and emphasizes your vision. Bring the brilliance, elegance, and majesty of the Harp to your day!
My primary event harp, newly purchased in November 2017, is made by the prestigious Italian manufacter "Salvi." Their luxurious, luminous sound and masterful craftmanship led to a custom commission from the Royal British Family to make the official harp for The Prince of Wales. My own Salvi instrument is a lovely Gilded Iris (Limited Edition) in rosewood and 24-carat gold, and a luxurious, vibrant, world-class sound.
I have worked to cultivate a full, romantic sound to entrance and dazzle my audience. In the relatively recent past, music for the harp has bloomed into an diverse and flamboyant range of styles, and I love to explore the musical possibilities they present! My repertoire includes Classical, Celtic, Modern pop, Golden Oldies, Broadway, Jazz, Disney/Soundtrack, Holiday & Religious, and Therapy/Garden-inspiration music.
Some of the events I've played for include:
-Weddings/receptions -Parties (background music) -Church services, funerals, memorials -Corporate Functions, school presentations -Solo performances -Chamber performances (or collaborations with other musicians/artists) -Benefit concerts & fundraisers -Ensemble (orchestra, musicals, opera) -Accompanying (choirs, duets, etc).
I first heard the harp as an impressionable toddler and have been in love with it ever since! Since starting harp lessons at the age of 11, I've continued to follow that passion throughout my studies at The Juilliard School: Precollege Division, The University of Michigan, and the University of Illinois, culminating with my Master of Music in Harp Performance and Literature degree. I perform frequently in the greater Metro-Detroit area, and past clients have included the DIA, the Metro-Detroit Chorale, the University of Michigan, and more!
