Iraida Poberezhnaya is a consummate musician! Her harp performance at our wedding rehearsal and lunch was fantastically beautiful and masterly. Her choice of repertoire and it's execution was superb and added so much to our wedding celebration. Many of our guests remarked on her excellent playing. In addition, she is also charming, very professional and easy to work with. We will definitely recommend her enthusiastically to our friends and relatives! Thank you, Iraida for making our special day one that we will never forget! Sincerely, Evelyn & Paul Askew

I would recommend A1Harpist to anyone looking to provide an wow factor to their upscale event. Ms. Iraida was very pleasant and sweet to work with and yes her playing was memorizing. This addition was the perfect touch of elegance to my parents 38th Anniversary. She is by far the best harpist I’ve ever heard and met 5 stars all the way across the board!!!!

Iraida Porverezhnaya was excellent! She was so professional and she played for an anxious church crowd that was waiting for a shuttle of wedding guests to arrive. She was a calming presence. She played a special song for my daughter to walk down the aisle Anne’s Theme that was magical. Not a dry eye in the place. She accompanied my other daughter as she sang and came a few minutes earlier to practice with her. She promptly returned phone calls and emails about the music to be played and was as sweet and cooperative as she could be. Thank you Iraida you were wonderful!!!
