We had so many comments that Monika added just the right touch! She seemingly effortlessly learned the recessional and two additional processional pieces! She was amazing! Thank you so much!

I hired Monika Vasey to play the harp for my husband's 80th birthday luncheon. We emailed back and forth a few times and she was prompt in her replies and professional in her communications. Her contract made clear everything she needed and she agreed to make a slight time change for me from my original request, which was very helpful. Her playing of background music during my event set a lovely tone to my husband's special day.
