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

Iraida played at our wedding and she was fantastic. She is a professional musician and can play a wide arrange of pieces. We chose non-traditional music for our wedding and her suggestions were perfect. Her playing was perfect! I would highly recommend her to anyone!

Iraida played the harp for about 20 minutes prior to the service, very quietly, tastefully, and beautifully during the ceremony, and for about 20 minutes following the ceremony, much of which we weren't able to attend. What we did hear was outstanding and we are looking forward to hearing the rest when our video arrives. Iraida was completely flexible, accommodating, and responsive to our requests. In addition to asking for specific songs, we also shared with her the experience we wanted to create for our guests. She interpreted that into her beautiful selections. Our guests were so impressed with her that they clapped after her selections as though at a concert.
