Harp & Soul is based out of Atlanta, GA and Philadelphia, PA. Founder and Owner, Nichole Rohrbach, is a recent Atlanta Harpist. Nichole also maintains a secondary residence in Philadelphia, PA area where she maintains a private teaching studio and performance schedule. Harp and Soul has been providing Wedding Music services and Special Event Entertainment for more than 15 years to Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, New York, Maryland, Virginia, Washington D.C., South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia and surrounding areas. Harp & Soul also partners with Sweet Caroline Entertainment based in the Tampa Bay area of Florida. Harp and Soul specializes in providing harp music for weddings and other events but also organizes and promotes a harp and cello duo, harp, cello and violin trio and other customized music ensembles or quartets centered on the harp or piano.

Weddings, Parties, Receptions, Showers, Benefits, Bar Mitzvahs, Open-Houses and the list goes on. Every day people are looking to celebrate a special event in some particular fashion and at the root of every good celebration is unique, beautiful and inspirational live music. So whether you are in the market for an Atlanta harpist, Philadelphia harpist, wedding musicians, or other combination of live music, check us out!

While Harp & Soul musicians are typically classically trained, they are not strangers to the popular music genres such as pop,hip-hop, R&B and jazz to name a few or artists like: "Train", "One Republic", "The Beatles", Christina Perri, Bruno Mars, Beyonce or Lady GaGa. As a musician, I am privileged to be a master of the universal language of music that not only spans cultures but also spans centuries with music that inspires and empowers and touches lives.

Don't let the long gowns, imposing instruments and past experiences put limitations on your expectations of what we have to offer you as musicians. Our repertoire is so expansive, that we haven't had time to write it all down. Just because a piece isn't listed doesn't mean we don't play it. And if we don't play it chances are we are able to come up with an arrangement for your special request and we both come out winners. You get your special request and we get to experience the joy of learning and adding a new piece to our repertoire.

Past special requests that have been added to our repertoire include: "All of Me" by John Legend, "Smells Like Teen Spirit" by Nirvana, "A Thousand Years" by Christina Perri, "Hey Soul Sister" by Train, "Halo" by Beyonce, "Secrets" by One Republic and "Edge of Glory" by Lady GaGa to name a few.

Music is a powerful art-form. It can influence the mood of a setting giving it a unique characteristic that sets apart and distinguishes your special event from any other. Whether you choose the angelic strains of the solo harp or choose to embellish the harp by adding rich tones of the cello or other instrumentalists, music is the key feature to invest in for your special event. Harp and Soul is owned and operated by the lead musician, as a result clients reap the benefits of having Nichole's professionalism and vast experiences and she guides each bride and client through the process of choosing the best package and music for the wedding or event.

In addition to providing music for special occasions and events, Harp & Soul believes in giving back to the community. That is why each year, harpist Nichole Rohrbach donates her time for educational outreach, discounts rates up to 100% to perform for shut-ins, assisted living communities, nursing homes and volunteers her talents for open houses at historic sites in Berks County and Montgomery County.

Nichole was very easy to work with. As the bride, I didn't get to hear most of her music at our wedding because I was getting ready to walk down the aisle before the ceremony and then we were taking photos during the cocktail hour. When I received my wedding video from my cinematographer I was blown away how beautiful it sounded and was really able to appreciate her talent and how much her music added to the ambiance of our ceremony and cocktail hour. Would definitely recommend Harp & Soul!

We all fell in love as Nichole's fingers flew across the strings of her harp. She played her heart out for us and if we could we would have paid her a million dollars! We so much enjoyed the variety of music including classical harp pieces, religious songs, Gershwin, movie music, and contemporary! We like all of it and when we requested something that Nichole did not have sheet music for, she took a minute, worked it out and played it by ear! She played expertly, dressed beautifully, and entranced us with her talks about harp history, her education and training, her teaching and the manufacturing and experience of owning and traveling with her harps.

Amazing harpist! The kids were asking to take lessons after she played. Beautiful music and showed up on time, professional, and elegant! We would like her to play again at our next event.
