Andrea made our wedding even more memorable as most guests had never been to a wedding with a harpist and they thoroughly enjoyed the music and ambiance she provided. We had used a harpist for our daughters wedding in Athens, GA several years ago. Many thanks again for such a wonderful experience from a truly talented professional.

Andrea is a brilliant harpist and knows how to play a variety of music. She played our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour, and we couldn't have been happier. Andrea was very accommodating, and everyone commented about how beautifully the sound resonated from the harp during the wedding march. I would highly recommend her to any event
