Margaret was amazing from the initial phone call! She listened to my needs and tried to find the best solution. With only a week to prepare, she performed wonderfully! Very upbeat and fun to work with even if it was only for a week. I would recommend Margaret to anyone looking for beautiful music and a wide range of talents. Thank you Margaret for a magical evening! You and your team really set the mood for the entire event and made it a success!
Awards Night Party
Margaret Atkinson - 4 The Dallas Strings’s Response:
Erica S, was also amazing to work with and she even talked me into getting out my accordion that I had not played in years to go with her Paris cafe themed event. I would not have done that for the average person, trust me!! I took my harp to make sure if the accordion was so bad I would have back up but it turned out great and ended up with only one Harp song!!! I now might be able to get a job in Paris thanks to Erica!!!
Margaret is outstanding. From the date of original booking, she was very accommodating, and willing to tailor her performance to our taste. Once at the event, Margaret's music was beautiful, and perfectly suited to the venue and event (a rehearsal dinner for 100). She provided continuous music without taking breaks during our 2 1/2 hour event. I would strongly recommend Margaret for any event that demands an elegant harpist.
Margaret is absolutely fabulous! She made our Women's event even more special with her talent and professionalism. I would highly recommend her for any event and I hope to work with her again. You will not be disappointed.
Margaret is simply the best. When I arrived to her home to go over the music selections she was more than helpful. Having done hundreds and hundreds of weddings she knew I was not prepared to be a bride. She helped with everything. The music selections were perfect, but she also had other services. I ordered my sand ceremony items and programs from her. She made the process so simple I could not thank her enough. She really knows what she is doing. All of my guests loved the harp music. She can do anything you put in front of her, trust me! She is AWESOME. If you want a wonderful wedding contact her ASAP!
About our private candle light celebration of Valentine's day at my home I hired Margaret to set up early to surprise us with Heavenly Music as we entered. Spectacular impression and she played non stop for 2 hours entertaining us with classical music and then of our requests. Ending the evening with one of my favorites Don't Cry for Me Argentina!!! Margaret’s performance was superlative. So you know what we thought of her, I hired her for my big Christmas party in December.
Margaret played at a gala Christmas party for us. Her harp echoed in the rotunda and was perfect to set the mood for the elegant evening. Later in the evening, she moved to the upper room of the home and played the piano with style and grace, ringing out Christmas carols and songs which kept the festivity of the season. I am pleased to say that we will be retaining her services at our future parties, and would highly recommend her to anyone wanting an elegant, stylish accompanist at their event!
Margaret was so helpful with the music selections and with the preparation leading up to the wedding day. She came early and was totally set up prior to any guest arrival. I had total confidence in her playing without any rehearsal. She was a big part of the successful event!
Margaret is an extremely talented musician. We were fortunate enough to book her for the annual Holiday Party. Playing for nearly 500 people, she amazed us with her harp and piano talents. We would recommend her to any inquiring party and definitely plan on booking her for future events.
Birthday Party (Adult)
This was such a great experience, all of the guests were amazed at the sound and clarity of the music. My mother was the guest of honor for the party and she pulled up a chair and just sat and listened. Thanks so much Margaret.
It was a pleasure to work with Margaret -- she is not only very professional she is an extremely gifted musician. Everyone who has given me feedback on our event has commented on how much they enjoyed the background music by "that wonderful harpist"!
