Giving your special event the attention and detail that it deserves is my specialty. Whether it is a dinner for 2 or 200; a small intimate wedding in a garden or a large wedding in church or synagogue, I will enjoy providing beautiful harp music to set the ambiance that you desire. I have performed for numerous weddings & many other special or corporate events in 30 years of experience. Venues where I have frequently performed include Airlie Conference Center, The Homestead, The Greenbrier, The Hotel Roanoke, Jefferson Hotel, the Governor's Mansion and many churches, synagogues, art galleries, colleges, private homes, and corporations. Repertoire available includes SACRED and CLASSICAL, CELTIC, MEDIEVAL and FOLK, CONTEMPORARY and BROADWAY TUNES.

I am conservatory trained and teach all ages and levels from beginner to collegiate. Some of my graduated students are now highly rated with GigMasters!

While residing in Roanoke for 15 years, I was the PRINCIPAL HARPIST with the Roanoke Symphony & Opera Roanoke. I also have performed with many other orchestras throughout Virginia, West Virginia & North Carolina.

If you have a SPECIAL REQUEST for a piece not on my repertoire, I will do my best to arrange it for performance especially for you. It will be my pleasure to help select the harp music for your event to make it memorable.

Elizabeth did an amazing job! She was professional, prompt, and the ambiance that the music set for our party was perfect. She will be the harpist we hire from now on. She played a wide range of music and did all of it very well. Thank you for making our party so special Elizabeth!

This musician is an experienced professional in every sense. Needs very little direction. Has ability and knowledge and background to assist in music selection. Her production was fit for the angels - and she was in a small non aircondioned church with no special accoustics. She was exactly what the ceremony required.

Elizabeth played for our daughter's wedding at the Mill at Fine Creek, and she was amazing. She was incredibly easy to work with and very professional. Her performance set the atmosphere for the wedding and then she quietly and quickly moved to play for the interim between the ceremony and the reception. Several people commented to me on how beautiful her music was. I am so glad we found Elizabeth and anyone who is lucky enough to book her will be more than satisfied!
