I truly look forward to playing harp music for every "special event" location you can name in St. Louis and around Missouri and Southern Illinois, for all kinds of occasions, formal and casual. Drop in to my home soon for a free, live harp music audition and a chance to visit about your event.
I have played for large groups as well as more intimate gatherings, worldwide, for over 30 years, mostly in Texas (years ago) and St. Louis in recent years. Among the other places I have performed, I have played for dinners at the Gritti Palace hotel in Venice, Italy. I won an international audition to be the featured nightly harpist on a long-term basis in The Crown Restaurant, overlooking the city lights of Tokyo, Japan from atop the Hotel Grand Palace, located next to the Emperor's Palace (The Imperial Palace). I have performed at a Concert Hall in Mexico, and various locations in Toronto, Canada, as well as events in other U.S. Cities for some of the finest hotels, country clubs, resorts and restaurants in the country, as well as many casual locations. I now play exclusively in my home city of the greater St. Louis, Missouri area, where I have performed at nearly every venue in town and well into Illinois as well.
In recent years, I was St. Louis' "Ladies of Lucerne Tea Room" harpist each week. From time to time, I was also the Sunday brunch harpist for "Crepes in the City", a fine restaurant in downtown St. Louis. Prior to that, I played five or six nights a week for over 15 years at Cafe Capri, an upscale restaurant in Dallas, Texas. I have played for a number of venues in St. Louis and surrounding regions. Please contact me for a complete list of locations of my appearances in the greater St. Louis area.
I am degreed in Harp Performance. Not all musicians have a diploma in performance, and the difference in the quality of the music is noticeable to anyone who is listening.
Although I have had extensive training and decades of professional experience, I am constantly improving my playing by traveling to other cities to study with the top classical and jazz harpists in the world.
Throughout my over 30-year career, I have played harp music throughout Texas, Missouri, and Illinois. I have performed in nearly all of the most popular public venues, such as restaurants and hotels, and in churches, temples and synagogues throughout St. Louis, and elsewhere. I often play for private clubs, nursing homes, galleries, many corporate events, and hospitals.
For a number of years, I enjoyed performing on a steady basis each week at the gracious "Ladies of Lucerne Tea Room" in St. Louis, Missouri. However, in recent years, I have freed up the time that I previously committed to playing steady harp jobs at restaurants, so that I may accept more bookings for individual private engagements, as well as public events.
I take joy in your satisfaction with the lovely ambiance I can help you create. I can play either alone or in an ensemble. As an example, you'll notice on my list of past engagements that I recently performed in an ensemble of musicians composed of members of the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra, and I perform in other community Orchestras around town as well.
I love custom-tailoring the harp music to perfectly match your taste and your occasion. Some of the music I play includes lovely light classical European music, Latin music, and I have decades of experience playing popular romantic music full-time in fine restaurants...I play literally thousands of songs! Most songs are favorites of multiple generations, from classic popular, romantic love songs to more current popular songs, or Latin selections. Still, I constantly add new music to my repertoire. I can even play some upbeat music if that is your preference. Stylistically, I'm very versatile, with romantic wedding music being my specialty.
For years, I have been a school music teacher (mostly teaching Orchestra), where I also have taught harp classes, and I have taught private harp lessons in my home and in a Conservatory of Music. I used to be the principal harpist for a Symphony in a big city in Texas.
Harps pictured in these photos are large concert harps, which I chose for their extraordinary sound quality. All photos were taken recently.
You may hear current sound clips and see videos of my music on my website: "stlouisharp". Some of my videos, which have won critical acclaim may be seen on YouTube (search under "evaharp").
Please contact me if you would like personal references from loyal clients who hire me repeatedly. I would also be happy to provide recommendations from very respected professional musicians who I have worked with.

Eva was VERY enthusiastic about this idea and even met on the side with our hammered dulcimer player to practice. She was very professional, was quick to return Emails and phone calls, and her skill at playing the harp is one I have never seen before. She was an absolute JOY to work with! :)"

She is very talented and I would definitely recommend her services. "

Would definitely use her again for her harp music. It added a wonderful ambiance to our Christmas gathering. "
