Michelle Cobley is a professional freelance harpist who has recently moved back to her hometown of Cary, North Carolina via the United Kingdom, Asheville, and Boston, MA. In the U.K., she received her Master's degree in music performance from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama after earning her Bachelor of Music degree from one of the most renowned music colleges in the country; Berklee College of Music.

Since moving back in September, she has quickly become a prominent harpist and has greatly enjoyed performing at venues such as the Koka Booth Amphitheater, The Umstead Hotel for high tea, Prestonwood Country Club, MacGregor Downs Country Club, and the North Carolina Museum of Art (and even Penny Road Elementary School for their 5th grade tea!) She has performed for many weddings, house parties, corporate functions and conventions throughout the Piedmont area, as well as continuing her private teaching career at a local music school. You can also find her frequently joining in the jazz jam at C Grace in downtown Raleigh!

Her repertoire includes music from classical, pop, celtic, and jazz genres and is constantly growing. She is willing and able to learn new music for your event if it is not in her repertoire.


Past Reviews:

"Michelle enhanced my seasonal event by her sensitive and expert playing. Many of my guests commented on the welcoming effect of the harp as they settled in to the evening and often one or other could be seen simply enjoying the varied melodies as they prepared for dinner. We will certainly ask Michelle to play for us again" ~Dr. W. McCulloch, President, Alba BioPharm Advisors, Inc., Raleigh, NC

"Michelle was a delight to work with for our our outdoor fall wedding in October. Since I wasn't sure what songs to play at our ceremony, I gave Michelle the option to choose her own selections and they worked out beautifully. I didn't want to walk down the aisle to traditional wedding music, so I picked Coldplay's "Yellow" and Michelle in turn learned how to play it just for me. Our friends and family loved the unique vibe the harp brought to our special day." ~ MaryLou, bride

"Michelle was very easy to work with. I was able to customize the music with specific requests. The harp is a beautiful addition to a ceremony." ~Amanda, bride

"She conducted herself with utmost professionalism and played with precision. She was attentive to cues and dynamics and made all her passages sound beautiful.""
David Marlette, Director of Music, First United Methodist Church in Cary, NC

"Ever hear of jazz on the harp? Me neither. Michelle and Dan (Stringsense) provided music for a birthday party at my home. Michelle plays jazz harp and Dan plays jazz guitar. It was amazing. They played a selection of jazz and pop music and were able to play requests for my friends. I have had several comments from my guests about the beautiful performance that evening. I would highly recommend them to add a touch of class to any occasion."
~Sue from Cary, NC

"Michelle played accompaniments and lead a harp ensemble. She then played a lovely celtic balled which was just beautiful." Gerry, audience member of a traditional Scottish Burn's Night Celebration

Since I was the bride, I only heard two songs, the one I walked down the aisle to and the one I walked up to, but they both sounded beautiful. I had several friends, family, and co workers who said that she did a wonderful job. They were impressed by her and many of them never heard a harp before. My co worker said that it was very unique.
