Description:

Thank you for inquiring.

As a harpist, I provide the setting for any fine occasion which requires lovely music. I am fortunate to also be able to perform with other musicians from my area. I would be pleased and proud to refer them to you upon your request.

Additionally, I am glad to provide a CD for you to review when selecting your music for your occasion.

Biography:

My background began in piano, voice, strings and ultimately, found its way to the harp. In the 5-county area of south-central Pennsylvania and northern Maryland, I have played for nearly 800 weddings, public/civic and private receptions including several for two state senators, anniversaries, open houses, orchestras, memorial services and more.
