She played amazing and was so easy to deal with. If she didn't know a song she learned it and was able to add a violinist at the last minute when we asked. Highly recommended! I just wish I could have heard her play more!
Andrea was amazing. She played beautifully, just as we had arranged previously.
Andrea is professional, talented and reliable. She showed up a little early and played beautifully. I sang two songs with her and was patient at all times. Most of all she was so nice and sincerely pleasant. Never hesitate to book her. Simply fantastic!!!
Andrea Mumm, harpist, provided background music during the cocktail hour prior to a Rotary Club gala dinner. She was very professional in all aspects of her performance. She arrived early and was ready to play before the appointed time. At our club's request, she played a variety of music including Broadway show tunes, light Classical, and some jazz favorites. She is a wonderful musician and received many compliments from the guests.
Andrea played harp during my wedding ceremony. We asked her to arrange a relatively obscure STAX soul recording from the 1960s for my bride to walk down the aisle and she absolutely nailed the arrangement. Her playing was beautiful and the perfect background music for our ceremony! We would definitely recommend her services to anyone looking for a harpist for a wedding or any other event.
Andrea played at our wedding on June 18, her playing created just the ambiance we were looking for. It was just lovely and added the perfect touch, to both our ceremony as well as during dinner. Andrea was very professional and truly cared about playing the music we wanted for our special day. I would highly recommend Andrea and would absolutely ask her to play for any event.
If you are looking for the best harpist in Charlotte to play at your wedding, Andrea is your answer. Andrea played at our wedding and cocktail hour in April 2016 at the Duke Mansion and was an absolute joy to have be a huge part of the most important day of our lives. We booked Andrea after I researched and YouTubed every harpist around. She was our first choice. She was always quick to respond via email and text and very friendly and professional. A couple months out of the wedding we had our private consultation with Andrea - and I was blown away. Her harp playing is second to none. It is magnificent in person. She walked us through the whole ceremony and offered to play whatever we wanted to hear as well as her own suggestions since we were pretty clueless with ceremony music. After hearing her play that day I said to my then fiancé, "I just got really excited about this wedding". On the day of our wedding she was on time, professional, completely self sufficient, and her performance was flawless! She didn't even skip a beat but flashed a huge smile and kept on playing when our 11 month old ring bearer decided to quit walking down the aisle and stopped to point and coo at the pretty harp (before swiftly being whisked back on track by his bridesmaid mother) which made for one of the most adorable moments of the whole ceremony. Great job Andrea!! 10/10 would book again in a heartbeat.

Andrea played at our Muse event and everyone really enjoyed her music. It was the perfect backdrop to our evening. She was very prompt and professional.
Andrea recently played the harp for a VIP event we were hosting here at The Duke Mansion. It was a very important and special event for us and we were so pleased with Andrea's professionalism, beautiful talent, promptness and her passion! She was on time, dressed beautifully and was ready to go! She played for several hours and took cues very well when our guests we ready to make speeches throughout the evening. Highly recommend her!
We thoroughly enjoyed working with and listening to Andrea. She offered many music styles and selections to create the mood we wanted exactly. The children at the service were completely enthralled by the music.
Andrea played for our daughter's wedding and for the cocktail hour following at the VanLandingham Estate. She is an accomplished musician and so accommodating!

A native of New Jersey, Andrea Mumm holds the Dr. Billy Graham Principal Harp chair of the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra. Praised for her ability to “handle filigree solo passage with aplomb” and her “serene…and sweetly swoony” playing by the Charlotte Observer, Andrea is regarded as one of the top harpists of her generation.

Additional Booking Notes
Andrea is able to play outdoor events, but with certain requirements. The harp needs a flat, dry surface on which to stand, preferably with a covering (gazebo, tent, etc.). Generally, the harp takes up an area about the size of 4’ X4’. At the first sign of inclement weather (ex. rain, extreme heat, extreme cold), Andrea will have to move her harp indoors for the safety and protection of her instrument. Due to the delicate nature of her instrument, Andrea is unable to play outdoor events if the temperature is below 50F.
The harp is roughly 81 pounds and stands 74” tall. Andrea has her own “harp car” and is fully self-sufficient when transporting her instrument.
For most occasions, the harp does not need amplification! The harp sound projects well and Andrea can adjust her playing volume based on the venue space. If amplification is necessary, a standard microphone will do.
