Weddings

Ceremony: For wedding ceremonies I play at least 20 minutes of prelude, your march, the recessional after you have been pronounced man and wife and at least 15 minutes of postlude while your guests leave for the reception. I can play the songs for you over the phone so you get exactly what makes you feel special.

Cocktail Hour: I offer an upbeat mix of classical, popular, Celtic and Jazz standards and can add a special song to personalize your event.

Marching Harps: My students from the Irish Arts Center and I stroll with 26 string harps! If you are looking for an extravagant way to lead your guest from the ceremony to the reception or to greet them at the steps of the church, this is it!

I have a blog called The New York Wedding Harpist. Click to see all the wonderful venues I play with my harps!

Video Clips & Available Harps

Pedal Harp: my Concert Grand is a 47 string, full-size Orchestral pedal harp by Lyon and Healy. People always ask how much it cost–right now it would cost you $24,000 to purchase a similar instrument.

Electric and Acoustic Celtic Harps: These harps are portable and best for beach weddings, outdoors and for intimate spaces. The Celtic harp I use is made in France and is truly beautiful. I can provide amplification if you are using these instruments for larger spaces.

26 String Harps: Perfect for a casual or semi formal wedding. Song selection is limited, but I can play standing up. I have used this harp with wonderful result in Central Park. I played a friend’s wedding in the Cloister and it was one of the most heartfelt moments (I cried!)
