Harpist in South Lake Tahoe, CA
We were delighted to work with Anne on providing music for both our wedding ceremony and for the reception. She was very responsive to our inquiry, hosted us in her home for a preview of her music, played only from our extensive play list, charmed all of our guests and even dressed in a style to match our theme of High Tea. We are so glad we selected Anne as her music was the perfect background for our reception and lent a beautiful touch to our wedding ceremony. Richard and Alan

I found Anne while searching on the internet and found through GigSalad. Read the reviews and checked her website that led me to her beautiful sample music/recordings/performances. There was another string artists in GigSalad offering me their violin music service - they don't have any website, no sample music, and instead asking me to email them personally and my info - thought they're Scammers, try to get my money, wedding crash and ruin my wedding. If you want real value for money, very reliable, very professional, with website/sample music and wonderful wonderful music - you hire someone like Anne. She will reply to you right away, you don't have to follow up because she will. She'll send you the agreement, money down and then follow up again for your music selection (l just pick over 50 songs from her list) and if it's not on her list she'll find it for you. She'll make suggestions which music is appropriate for the ceremony/reception. Think about your wedding without any music from a reliable artist? Anne played wonderfully and beautifully and kept our wedding happy - she's a beautiful person too, will dress accordingly to your color motif. Carrying her harp, chair, umbrella (for outdoor) and play over 50 music is no joke, you'll get more from Anne. We had our a very small and intimate wedding, we also had our photographer, videographer, and Anne (and her assistant) sat with us during the reception - they're not there just to do their job but we want them to be included in our wedding/in our family. As an artist myself, l know what they do is hard work. Professional great artist like Anne especially her calm/gentle spirit - you want her to be a part of your wedding too. For me, she is the Best Harpist in Sacramento and The Sierra!

We were thrilled to have Anne play for our wedding. She was professional throughout our entire experience. She was helpful and friendly and most of all she played beautifully. She even coordinated her attire to match our wedding theme. Anne went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect for our day. Her song selection library is quite extensive and she took the time to send me links and talk to me about which songs to choose to fit our preference and our theme. All of our guests were in awe of her talent and everyone commented on what a wonderful touch it was to have her at our wedding! Thank you Anne!

Attired in a middle-class, Renaissance-era dress and sprinkling her harp performances with history lessons related to the Renaissance period – from blind Irish harper Turlough O’Carolan to King Henry VIII and Queen Elizabeth I – Roos delivered a performance that virtually transported our students to a distant time and place.

What can I say, other than Anne was incredible. From the first time I contacted her, she was very polite, professional, and just a pleasure to do business with. It's very obvious that Anne has plenty of experience and knows what she is doing. She asked questions that made planning the music for the ceremony easy, and never left us in doubt as to what was going to happen that day. My wife and I had a catholic ceremony in a church, which Anne was very familiar with, so she knew exactly what kind of music to play and when and everything went incredibly smooth and according to plan. Contact back and forth with Anne was also very easy. She is on top of everything and responds very quickly. She also follows up with you if she doesn't hear back, which I thought was great. There is a lot going on when planning a wedding, and it can though to stay on top of everything, so Anne's friendly reminders were very helpful. Last but not least, Anne is an excellent harp player. Her music during the ceremony was great, set the ambiance, and our guests really enjoyed it. Anne, we can't thank you enough!

Anne provided the ceremony music for our wedding. She was fantastic to work with, by far the most organized and responsive vendor we worked with in Tahoe. We met her a few months before our wedding and she very patiently played some of our favorite songs and helped us come up with which songs we should use at our ceremony. On our Big Day, the music was just perfect. We really appreciated how reliable and detail-oriented she was, probably the only vendor we didn't ever have to worry about! Thanks Anne!

Anne did an absolutely beautiful job playing music during our ceremony at Edgewood in Lake Tahoe, NV! All of our guests were in love with the elegance of having a harp player during the ceremony, and greatly enjoyed listening to her amazing talent! The guests were so excited to be able to recognize the music she was playing, such as, her famous, "stairway to heaven" by Led Zepplin, and "Desperado" by The Eagles, along with many others! Just take a look at all of the songs she plays on the harp! She is amazing! I would 100% recommend others that want their ceremony to have that perfect elegant touch, to higher Anne for their ceremony! Thank you again so much Anne for performing at our wedding! It wouldn't have been as perfect and complete without you!

Everyone at the wedding was impressed with the quality of the music and we all thought it really added a special touch to the day. My brothers wedding was on a beach in Tahoe and Anne was able to accomidate this by bringing a carbonfiber harp down on the beach along with an amp so that everyone could hear the music. I felt like the price was reasonable and she fulfilled her contract completely! Thanks Anne!

Anne Roos added so much to our wedding ceremony. As a senior couple, we were confused by what music we should choose to make our church ceremony special. We definitely chose correctly with Anne Roos. She offers so many choices, and helped us by previewing several pieces with us weeks in advance. We were to have several people of German descent as wedding guests, and Anne played such beautiful pieces prior to the ceremony, they were in awe. From Strauss wattzes to modern pieces, it all came together so beautifully. It made our wedding very memorable, and we give her 10 stars for her overall presentation.

My husband and I were married in our home and when our son Paul and his fiancé Jess requested to be married in the family home I was touched. They wanted to include a passage I wrote for my own wedding into theirs and in continuing the family tradition; I knew the Celtic harp would be appropriate for their wedding. I had heard Anne play and thought how wonderful it would be to have her perform for Jess and Paul’s wedding. She was booked for the day, but she opened up her schedule to accommodate the wedding. Ann worked with me to coordinate the appropriate music for the ceremony which included Eternity Candle lighting and traditional Celtic Hand Fasting ceremony as well. Ann’s choice of music before, during and after the ceremony was amazing. We highly recommend her and she added greatly to the whole experience for our friends and family in attendance. Well done Anne!

I had heard Anne play and thought how wonderful it would be to have her perform for Jess and Paul’s wedding. She was booked for the day, but she opened up her schedule to accommodate the wedding. Ann worked with me to coordinate the appropriate music for the ceremony which included Eternity Candle lighting and traditional Celtic Hand Fasting ceremony as well. Ann’s choice of music before, during and after the ceremony was amazing. We highly recommend her and she added greatly to the whole experience for our friends and family in attendance. Well done Anne!

We hired Anne to play at our lakeside ceremony along with a few other msucians. She organized all the music and even coordinated practice sessions with the other musicians. We also had her play more folk/bluegrass style during our cocktail hour and what she put together was incredible and is still being talked about by our guests! We could not have been more pleased with the musical ambience her talent created and we highly recommend using her for any special occasion! From beginning to end she was a pleasure to work with!

Bio

Anne Roos' love of English and Celtic music blossomed as a child and young teen at Southern California Renaissance Fairs, when she became involved singing in madrigal groups, performing period music. She started playing the Celtic harp quite by accident. While employed at an incredibly stressful job, Anne serendipitously met Sylvia Woods at a booth full of little Celtic Harps at a Winter Solstice Fair and began taking private instructions from her as a creative outlet. Then came music theory courses at UCLA and eventually teaching music for the Los Angeles Unified School District.

Anne has performed throughout the country for more than twenty years as a soloist at resort hotels, convention centers, cruise ships, concert venues, highland games, Celtic and Renaissance fairs, casino clubs, wineries, meditation retreats-- you name it. She has been invited to perform for several dignitaries, including the Lord Mayor of Dublin, Ireland.

Her ability to play a wide variety of music, ranging from traditional Celtic, Early, Renaissance and classical music, to modern popular music from the movies, Broadway, Beatles, and even Metallica, have made her a popular and much sought after musician for all types of events. Most recently, Anne was the regularly scheduled musical entertainment at Llewellyn's restaurant on the top of Harvey's Resort Hotel in South Lake Tahoe. Fulfilling requests from dining guests, from "Canon in D" and "Greensleeves" to "Stairway to Heaven," showcased the extent of her repertoire.

Anne is not only comfortable performing in front of a live audience, but also on camera and behind a microphone. She has appeared on a number of television programs and radio shows, performing with the Celtic Harp. Several resort vacation videos promoting travel to beautiful Lake Tahoe, where she resides, showcase Anne on the Celtic Harp. She has been able to utilize her extensive knowledge of music as a Classical, Jazz, and World music announcer for National Public Radio.

Anne is also a published author and considered a wedding music specialist with her book "The Bride's Guide to Musicians: Live Wedding Music Made Easy and Affordable", published by Hal Leonard books. She also published a how-to manual for musicians who are interested in performing for nuptial occasions--"The Musician's Guide to Brides".

Anne is an active member of the San Francisco Chapter of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, the Recording Academy. Anne is proud to be involved with this organization, which works to positively impact the lives of musicians, industry members and our society at large.

Testimonials

“Anne Roos is an amazing harpist and this CD showcases her talents beautifully. A small musical group joins her on this effort, which highlights songs about woodland creatures such as fairies, nymphs and trolls. A 31 page hardcover book comes with the CD and it talks about various folk history and legends--a nice touch to a well thought out musical effort.

The group provides a lovely sound. CDs that are put forth only showcasing harp music can be nice, but it is equally wonderful to have some additional accompaniment; and it expands the amount of people that it will appeal to as well.

Roos' harp music is effortless. Gliding and sliding over notes, she shows her skill time and again, but this isn't "gaudy" music. It's simple, pretty fare. At 18 tracks, there are quite a few songs to enjoy here, each offering its own mood and feel. The gentleness of the harp is underscored in some pieces, the yearning almost palpable. If you love the instrument, you have to listen to this and see what can be done with the various arrangements. If you aren't a huge fan of the harp, there are still plenty of tracks here that you can enjoy.”

– Catherine L. Tully

Lahri Bond reviews Anne Roos’ CD, A Light in the Forest in the June/July 2008 issue:

"Here is a nifty little idea; combine a CD of Celtic harp music, thematically connected by songs about forest and faerie lore, with a CD-sized hardcover book of background information and stories associated with each song. In the hands of a lesser player than Anne Roos, this could have easily been an exercise in prancing around the pixie dust, but Roos’ research, design sensibility, and, most of all, her masterful playing makes this project a delight.

Joined by woodwinds, harmonium, percussion, viola, guitars, and fiddle, Roos takes center stage with her sweeping and articulate harp playing on 18 tunes. What brings this CD up a level from just another pretty harp album is Roos’ sharp and clean harp playing. She also has a fine ear for melody and timing.

The booklet is richly illustrated with paintings from such artists as Frank Goodwin and William Holbrook Beard and a host of Victorian postcard illustrations. Overall, this is an exceptional marriage of music, words, and visuals that both adults and children would enjoy very much.”

Hot Review of Anne Roos' CD Mermaids & Mariners

In the August/September 2005 issue of Dirty Linen Magazine, Susan Hartman reviews Mermaids & Mariners, the latest album release by Anne Roos:

"Lovely" and "enchanting" are two words that come to mind in describing this CD. First, the packaging: in hardcover-booklet form, fronted by marbled paper surrounding a cutout through which shows a tinted illustration from a German fairy-tale book. Extensive notes include an essay on the nature of the "call of the sea," the history of each tune, and a biography of each musician. A perfect piece for gift shops...but how does the music stand up? Quite well, in fact. Anne Roos is an accomplished Celtic harpist, and she is joined by equally accomplished friends to form an ensemble that makes music at the crossroads of Celtic and "ancient music."
