$175 - $600 per event
Mary Keppeler has been communicating through the elegance and grace of the harp for over thirty years. She expresses clear, clean sounds through resonant, restful, yet energizing music. Mixing classical, popular and folk arrangements, she creates music that can convey moods ranging from playfulness to quiet reflection or nostalgia to elegant wonder.

Mary plays for weddings, receptions, private parties, funerals, corporate and charitable functions. Some of her clients for private functions have included the American Club, Milwaukee Athletic Club, Milwaukee Brewers Corporation, Medical College of Wisconsin, Walgreens Corporation, Kohler Corporation, Culvers Corporation, American Cancer Society and Wisconsin Parkinson Association. Additionally, Mary played for Afternoon Tea at Milwaukee's elegant and historic Pfister Hotel from 2005 until 2013.

Events for which Mary has played have taken her to interesting performance venues, including an island via ferry, an island via private airplane, the beaches of Lake Michigan, county and state parks, a Chicago nightclub, botanical gardens, the Domes, stately hotels, rooftop terraces, the student-filled halls of a Milwaukee public school, private backyards, country clubs, a bathroom showroom, a jewelry store, a department store makeup display, retirement communities, a lighthouse, and museums. She has played as a bride rode in to her ceremony on horseback, and as a groom flew in to his lakeside ceremony on a pontoon plane. She has performed under the blaze of stage lights and artificial falling snow, under the light of crystal chandeliers and in the summer sun, in churches and a cathedral, under trees, in a meadow, by lakes, and in a barn.

In addition to solo harp engagements, Mary is active as a free-lance orchestra and ensemble harpist. She plays principle harp for the Manitowoc Symphony, regularly plays substitute first harpist or second harp for the Sheboygan Symphony, and has played as substitute harpist for the Green Bay Symphony, the Skylight Opera orchestra, and the Dudley Birder Chorale. Other performances include those with Mannheim Steamroller, Milwaukee Master Singers, Lutheran A Capella Choir, Cluj (Romania) Opera Chorus, Tokyo (Japan) International Singers and in Purkersdorf, Austria.

Mary is a consummate professional and was a real pleasure to work with. She gave us personal time and focus to help us pick out the best songs for our ceremony. She also accommodated a special request for a Chinese song played during our prelude. I would highly recommend her services and would not hesitate to hire her again in the future. If you looking for a harpist to add an elegant touch to your event, Mary is it!

Mary is an amazing harpist and made our wedding extra special! She was so accommodating and very professional. There are a million and one things that you hope come together on one day for a wedding and Mary was the least of my worries! Her communication was great and she was so friendly. When choosing music for the various parts of the wedding, she had great suggestions. I highly recommend her!
