I will do my best to make your event as unique as you are. You can be sure that you will have a wonderful experience from start to finish. Classically trained, I studied at the Musikhochschule in Vienna, Austria after completing my Bachelor's Degree of Music at Valdosta State University. I am an experienced, professional and seasoned performer and have been playing professionally since 1997. I am fully insured, which some venues require. I have personal general liability coverage as well as instrument and equipment coverage.

Included are:
-A customized song list
-Your choice of instrumental harp, harp music and singing, or both. Essentially, you are getting two musicians in one at no additional fees.
-A Sound system, if necessary (sometimes an emcee/DJ has one to use)
-Unlimited consultation with me
-Transport and travel (additional fees apply for travel over 50 miles).
-I have several harps of various styles and sizes from elegant Concert Grands to charming Celtic & Folk Harps available.
- I am happy to coordinate my attire with your event including costumes for a themed event.
-A contract and deposit are required to book any event.
-Additional fees will apply for relocation to a separate facility by car, or if there is a significant time lapse between the Ceremony and Reception.
-Accommodations are requested for events over 150 miles from San Mateo, CA.
-For high-quality video, please visit my youtube channel: Erica Messer Harpist

My fiancé & I have reminisced and replayed that beautiful day (with the perfect soundtrack to match, thanks to Erica) in our minds numerous times. She not only is an amazing harpist with such an eclectic range of songs, but she can also sing like an angel! To top it all off, Erica have a great personality. Our family could not stop raving about her! There were times during the evening that we felt as though she were part of our own family. Erica truly is a first-class musician & a top-notch individual. Hire her!!! You'll thank yourself for doing so. Feel free to email me your specific questions about Erica's performance at my engagement @ cmmachado@gmail.com.

We were extremely happy with Erica and her services at our son's wedding. I heard the the music playing and was almost moved to tears. It was such a wonderful decision on having a harpst there. Erica, of course, played beautifully on her manificent looking harp! I will not hessitate to recommend her to anyone looking to add something special to their event. I almost forgot to mention her flexibility to requests and working together with the family to execute the vision!!
