Alice provides beautiful music as a harpist, pianist, and organist for special events in the San Jose and San Francisco areas.

Alice Yau pairs the beauty and simplicity of classical influences with a contemporary style that is a hallmark of her music. Demonstrating her versatility and musicianship, she can play the harp, piano, as well as the organ, for special events and celebrations, like weddings.

Alice loves playing for weddings, and it shows in her work. 'Sometimes I can't believe that I'm being paid to do something I enjoy so much,' she says. 'I love playing for weddings because people are happy, the music I play is beautiful, and I have the honor of being a part of such an important day in peoples' lives.' She offers in-person consultations, a service others relegate to a demo cd or a repertoire list. She enjoys the emotional connection with each bride and groom before playing for their event.

Because Alice is such an accomplished musician, the couple has a lot of flexibility in the music that they select. Musical selections are not limited to a short list, but rather, the repertoire list is a springboard for musical ideas for the ceremony. Alice is able to play a variety of styles, create her own arrangements, as well as create medleys and blended music (where different songs are 'fused' together) which makes for unique music that is not available anywhere else.

Alice is constantly on the search for new music that would be appropriate for wedding ceremonies. 'I love coming up with fresh ideas, and I love the new ideas that come from brides,' Alice states. 'Sometimes, when the couples and I get together to brainstorm, we come up with something that we might not have come up with on our own.'

Another unique service that Alice is able to provide is the variety of instruments offered. Alice offers the harp, piano, or organ, and couples can even have two or more instruments in the same ceremony. This truly is an distinguishing service that few musicians are able to offer.

Her personal touch, coupled with the exceptional caliber of musicianship, makes her a highly regarded and a much sought-after wedding musician.
