Beyond Professional

Being a business owner of a production company, I was stunned and awed by the professionalism of Meghan Davis. Her talent is uncanny, her communication was flawless, and she is truly one of the most professional people I have ever had the pleasure of working with. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a professional harpist for an event.

First Rate from start to finish

I had Meghan perform at my home for an 85th birthday party I was hosting for 30 people. She performed wonderfully and everything from the initial contact, communications around the repertoire, arrival and setup to interactions with the guests was top notch, professional, warm and friendly. Highly recommended without reservation.

A little bit of heaven on earth

Meghan provided the music at my mother-in-law's funeral mass.
With her beautiful harp and voice, it was as if a beautiful angel was giving everyone present a preview of what to expect in heaven. I have seen Meghan play before at other affairs, including my son's wedding. No matter the venue, she is the whole package.

Meghan's Harp opens hearts and wallets at fundraiser!

I recently planned a fundraising event in a classical venue for some major Philadelphia area philanthropists. Part of the event included autioning off some religious pieces of artwork. Meghan's performance on the harp added tremendously to the celestial ambiance and sophistication I wanted to create for the event. The music she selected included traditional harp music, but also some more "modern" pieces which enlivened some of the attendees. In addition to her mastery of the harp, several guests were captivated with her beatiful voice.
Meghan was a delight to work with through the whole process. On the night of the event she arrived early, was professional, and engaging with attendees. I highly recommend Meghan for any event you may be planning (...unless they interfere with the events I will be hiring her for again in the future).

Class and talent wrapped in a beautiful package!

From first meeting Meghan I knew she was a true professional! My mind was put at ease when she arrived promptly and introduced herself. Her performance was perfection. All of our guests commented that the ceremony was beautifully enhanced by the harp and cello making it a truly memorable experience. I am truly grateful for her gift of beautiful music that I will remember for years to come. I would recommend Meghan to any person having an event that required talent, commitment, and class!

Harpist for Wedding

I was searching for a harpist to play during my wedding ceremony and came across Meghan Davis. Since we lived about an hour or so away we did all our communication through emails or phone calls and she was always quick to respond. I was also hoping to have someone play the flute along with the harp and when I told her this she was able to find someone for us! She did an excellent job playing at our ceremony and we got lots of compliments on the music. When I had asked her to play a couple of pieces that were not listed on her page she found those pieces and learned them. She was very easy to work with and it was stress free (which is what brides need when it's getting close to their big day!) I cannot say enough good things about her!

Comforting Music at a Sad Time

Meghan gave a beautiful performace at my Dad's funeral Mass, along with Cellist Alex Keller. The music provided much comfort at a time of great sadness. She is very knowledgeable about Catholic services and was able to perform flawlessly as Cantor for the Mass. Very easy to communicate with and has a very professional and elegant demeanor. Many Thanks and hope to work with again!

Beautiful wedding ceremony music

I am so glad Meghan was a part of our May 2013 wedding at the Merion Tribute House!

Her beautiful harp music was the perfect complement to our sophisticated wedding venue and outdoor ceremony. We didn't have a large wedding party but it was a long walk from the venue to the altar so it was lovely to have harp music to fill the team and set the perfect tone.

Meghan was incredibly easy to work with--choosing music selections, order of music, set up at the venue, etc. She made a suggestion for the order of the song choices but when I asked her to change it later so was completely accommodating which I really appreciated.

We decided not to have a videographer so I don't have a recording of Meghan playing but from what I heard myself during my walk down the aisle and everyone else's compliments, I know we made a great choice!! Thank you, Meghan!

Amazingly beautiful harp music!

Ms. Davis was guest harp soloist at our recent church spring concert. She plays with passion and expertise. She not only plays beautifully, she is elegant to watch. Her arrangement of Send in the Clowns was gorgeous and skillfully performed. Both her accompaniments and her solos are done very expressively. She has a kind and gracious demeanor and is very easy to work with. We will definitely have her back again in the future. I would highly recommend Ms. Davis to anyone seeking a harpist.

Stunning Performance!

My husband and I attended the Donegal Society Memorial Mass at the Miraculous Medal Shrine in Philadelphia this afternoon. This Mass was the lovliest we have ever attended. Meghan sang and played harp throughout the mass, providing both solo and duet performances with cellist, Alex Keller. Their music was absolutely exquisite! The combination of harp and cello was georgous and Meghan's voice was just so incredibly beautiful. The music selections and arrangements were perfect for the occasion. The Ave Maria, Prayer to St. Francis and Our Lady of Knock were especially stunning and emotionally comforting to those mourning the loss of loved ones. Stunning Performance!!

Beautiful wedding enhanced by Meghan Davis

Meghan played harp and sang for our wedding ceremony at St. Peter's Church in Northern Liberties on June 2, 2012. The ceremony was a full traditional Roman CPatholic mass, and her harp and voice enhanced the beautiful solemnity of the event. If the church was not so amazingly stunning, and my wife not so drop-dead gorgeous, Meghan would have stolen the show. It was perfect.

A delightfully talented musician

On Saturday June 9, 2012, we hosted a bridal shower tea luncheon for my niece. The event was held in an outdoor pavilion with a spectacular view of the grounds surrounding it. Meghan played while the guests arrived and lunch was served. She played beautifully and completed the event knowing exactly what pieces to play to compliment the day. Dealing with Meghan prior to the event was a pleasure, she is competent, professional and extremely accommodating. I would highly recommend her for any occasion you may find the desire to treat your guests.

Meghan provided a wonderful accompaniment to the opening reception at the Philadelphia Rose of Tralee event. The mix of classical and more popular tunes was perfect and her command of that beautiful instrument is amazing. Her selections set the stage for an elegant evening and added a touch of class to the occasion.

Sensational!

We just attended a Valentine's Day candle-light dinner at our Club and Meghan was the featured entertainment. First of all, her program was the most beautiful blend of musical genres that we have ever heard. Second, she is a very skilled harpist with much talent. Third, did I mention that she is as beautiful as she is talented. What a wonderful evening!

Beautiful Harp Music

I attended a wedding recently at which Ms. Davis played. Her preludes were tasteful and delicate, and she even sang while accompanying herself on the harp! She seems to have an excellent command of many styles, from Bach to Gershwin. Her playing provided a great atmosphere for cocktails and mingling. Her playing would be a beautiful addition to any special event!

Overview

The harp's rich and warm timbre provides the perfect backdrop to any wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, solo performance, and many other events. It is elegant both visually and auditorily. It can be paired beautifully with other instruments such as the cello, violin, viola, flute, clarinet and others.
