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!!!!
