Reviews
As a public programs coordinator for the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, I host many events that require high quality and professional musicians. We were very fortunate to have found Sandra Salstrom, one of the finest harpist in the Texas area, to play at a very exclusive award ceremony here at the museum. Sandra was absolutely wonderful!! The museum was very pleased and looks forward to working with Sandra again in the future.

Sandra did an outstanding job for us. She added a few songs to her repertoire for our performance and played them beautifully. She was very professional, on time, flexible and was generally a pleasure to work with. In our new chapel we will be doing quite a few weddings and we have added her as our top call harpist.

Sandra added a beautiful touch to our Celebration of Life angel tree ceremony that we have each year. It was the perfect musical instrument to tie our celebration together and her music was just so elegant and beautiful. Thank you, Sandra.

Sandra Salstrom's music was incredible,just simply incredible. There are not words to express the quality of work and professionalism that she displayed. I have had many, many friends and family come to me and tell me that the music from the harpist was very beautiful. My boss, who attends all kinds of symphonies and musical venues, told me she was the very best he had ever heard-knowing him, that was a great complement. I would recommend Sandra Salstrom and her harp to anyone who is looking to have a wonderful, professional person play incredible music for their event.

Sandra was a pleasure to have in my home. She played appropriate selections and was very professional. I would highly recommend her to anyone. My guests were impressed with her playing as I was. In addition she is a really nice lady and I enjoyed meeting her. Polly Gauthier

Sandra Salstrom was a big hit at the English Tea/Baby Shower that was held at my home. The guests commented that having a harpist added tremendously to the ambiance and mood of the event. Sandra played beautifully and chose appropriate pieces of music to perform. She was punctual, professional and very pleasant. She was very helpful in selecting the best location in my home to set up her harp so that the guests could enjoy her music during the party. I would certainly recommend Sandra to anybody looking for a harpist to enhance their event.

Sandra is a wonderful harpist and person. All of our guests inquired of me as to where I found Sandra. We would all recommend Sandra and I would certainly book her gig again for any special occasion. She both met and exceeded our expectations.

Sandra was a delight. So many people want her telephone number. I enjoyed her playing the harp and so did all of the guests.
-Debbie H, 2/10/2007, Shower, Houston, TX


We really wanted a harpist and we were glad that we did it. Adding the harpist was a great additional dimension to our wedding program. The highlight was the harpist playing 'Here Comes the Bride' as my wife entered the ballroom. Sandra was very pleasant and good to liaise with prior to the event. She made things easy for us and was certainly professional. She even added the extra touch of suggesting that she could wear a traditional outfit as ours was an Indian wedding. I would definitely recommend to others!
