Anya Saens is the most awarded harpist in the Los Angeles area available through GigMasters for your private events. Her elegance and virtuosity deliver an unforgettable experience for her clients and their guests.

Playing grand concert pedal harp since age 7, she began winning international classical competitions at age 11. Finishing both her music high school and elementary school by the age of 14, she completed her BFA at 18, and her Master's degree at 21.

Her repertoire defies her background, favoring pop, jazz, R'n'B and rock music, while still maintaining a healthy love for classical.

Since the beginning of her career as a young professional, she has over 1,000 formal solo and orchestral performances behind her, including over 400 television and radio appearances. As a recording artist, she has performed on 15 separate albums for both European and US labels, including some of her own original compositions.

Her corporate clients include the Pelican Hill resort, Shangri-La resort (Muscat, Oman, 2016), St. Regis (Doha, Qatar, 2012), Hilton (Dallas, TX, May, 2012), and Windsor hotels (Hokkaido, Japan, 2010-2011), and Kawasaki (Rock performance, Bahamas, Paradise island, November, 2013).

Andrea was superb. Her appearance, performance, and professionalism was unmatched. I would definately hire her again if I ever have the opportunity. She is relocating soon which will be a tremendous loss to the Dallas community. If given the opportunity to rate Andrea higher than a 5, I would have done so. On a scale of 1 to 5, Andrea is a 10!

Anya was such a pleasure to work with. She was easy to book, confirmed a couple of times before the event, and showed up early to the event. She can play everything from Metallica to the Titanic theme song and everything in between. She is beautiful as well, and looked angelic in her white dress. I would definitely recommend Anya for your event and plan to use her for all of our future events.
