Dreaming of the harp? Enjoy a blissful musical experience tailored to your event, bringing the brilliance, elegance, and majesty of the Harp to your day!
My primary harp is a lovely Gilded Iris (Limited Edition) in rosewood and 24-carat gold, and a luxurious, world-class sound. My repertoire includes Classical, Celtic, Modern pop, Golden Oldies, Broadway, Jazz, Disney/Soundtrack, Holiday & Religious, and Garden-theme music.
I began harp lessons at 11 years old, continuing with studies at the Juilliard Pre-College, Univ. of Michigan, and Univ. of Illinois, and culminating with my Master of Music in Harp Performance and Literature.

Chanah Ambuter's music was wonderful and she is a delight to work with. I would highly recommend her!
Chanah is an amazing harpist. We hired her to provide music at my brother's memorial service and asked her to select what she felt was appropriate. She was amazing and I can't imagine the service without her. Kind and extremely professional, she helped us honor our brother in a very unique and special way. I cannot thank her enough.
Response from Chanah Ambuter, Harpist:
Thank you, Elizabeth! It was truly an honor to play for you and your loved ones during this time of remembrance and reflection. I am overjoyed that I was able to bring the comfort and solace of the harp to you on this day. I hope the rest of the day was as filled with the companionship and love of your family, and that you have a joyous Holiday Season and New Year!
Chanah was absolutely amazing in helping us plan the right set of music for our wedding day. She was prompt, played beautifully, and even sent us the files after our big day.
I loved that I could preview a lot of her work on youtube and get a sense for what would feel best to us. Everyone who came to our wedding complimented her work...it was really a special element to our day.
Chanah was easy to talk to, and an amazing harpist with a wide range of songs. My ceremony was beautiful with her playing. She even played some for the Reception. I would love to recommend her for your wedding.
Chanah arrived on time and played beautifully. The music was a commemoration to our forty years of marriage. Chanah was very professional and everyone truly enjoyed her music.
What to Expect
I believe that for your event, you shouldn't need to settle for a pre-prepared mold. Music is expression, and whether you love the elegant classics, or gravitate towards the tender song that brings back the memories, or you're on the cutting edge and want that tune that just hit youtube, your event should be an expression of what you want and who you are. I realize that and I do my best to work on musical selections with you WITHOUT charging extra costs. My goal is your satisfaction.
I also make myself available via communication and technological sharing. Just as you wouldn't buy a wedding cake without tasting it, I don't expect you to hire me without sampling what I do. I'm flexible and conversant with sharing my music across the miles.
No matter what, you know what you're getting: exactly what you want.
I first heard the harp as an impressionable toddler and have been in love with it ever since.
Since starting harp lessons at the age of 11 in 2002, I've continued to follow that passion throughout my studies at The Juilliard School: Precollege Division, The University of Michigan, and the University of Illinois, culminating with my Master of Music in Harp Performance and Literature degree.
I own two harps: the "Premier" pedal harp by Venus Harps, and the lever harp "Korrigan" by Camac Harps. The Premier is used most often, since it can accommodate any style of music. The Korrigan is best suited to Celtic or Renaissance music.
I cultivated a full, romantic sound to entrance and dazzle my audience. In the relatively recent past, music for the harp has bloomed into an astounding range of styles, and I love to explore the musical possibilities this presents.
