Ms. Mendieta, our family and friends were in awe of your outstanding performance for our private family retreat. You were the special touch we were looking for to bring calm and joy to our souls.
As a family we were looking to renew ourselves, away from technology and the busyness we are surrounded with. Your performance not just touched our souls and soothed our Spirits but.. equally important with your impressive performance was what many guests mentioned the harp's beautiful sounds, as well as your angelical demeanor, helped connect us to one another.
There was a moment in which, I felt overwelmed during the performance... thinking what a privileged we had at that moment in time, knowing you had also performed for Pope Emeritus Benedict.
We were all delighted by your music. From the bottom of our hearts we thank you for being on time, being there and making of our family retreat a mystical experience. The music connected us to the beauty of God.

Response from Anna Maria Mendieta - Solo to Ensemble:
Thank you so much for your beautiful words! What a wonderful experience it was to be a part of your family retreat. It was indeed a very special time! I felt honored and grateful to be there. Retreats are so nurturing and healing. Something that always fascinates me, is that music can express thoughts & emotions that sometimes can't be expressed in words. And the quietness of the retreat was the perfect space for all of us all to be open for that. I'm thrilled that the harp music contributed to the peace & joy present that day.
God bless you,
