We hired Christina to play harp at our wedding. She was a complete professional both before the event and on the day. She always responded to emails very promptly and kindly accommodated our last-minute music requests. The music she played was just marvellous and set a very, very special tone at our event. We would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone looking for a harpist.
Christina and her violinist were excellent . They played an awesome mixture of classical and pop music appropriately set to harp and violin .
We were exceptionally pleased with Christina. Guests were very complimentary of her music, her wide range of selections and the fact that she played the entire 2.5 hours of the event, with two very brief breaks. I will definitely hire her again!
Christina helped make my wedding on August 12th, 2017 absolutely perfect in every way! She was so easy to work with throughout the whole wedding planning process, and she was even willing to learn any new songs I asked before my wedding day. I couldn't give a higher recommendation!
Christina provided beautiful music at our daughter's wedding. She is very talented, reliable and is a team player with a positive attitude. It was evident that she is accomplished and experienced.

Christina played the harp for our wedding at the Carolina Yacht Club and she did an incredible job! She played during the ceremony and cocktail hour and it definitely added to the charm of our venue. I would strongly recommend Christina to anyone in need of a harpist! She is extremely talented and a pleasure to work with!
Christina was easy to work with, had an extensive website so I could preselect the songs to be played. She also accompanied a soloist that I hired, and had a violinist to accompany.
I will recommend her to anyone who wants to add beauty to their wedding or event. Her repertoire is extensive and not only wedding oriented.
It was the icing on the cake---fabulous and memorable !!
She arrived early to set up. She starting playing as she talk with residents and ask them numbers of time if they had requests and some of the resident did. She carried herself very professional and she politely took a break so she could enjoy our special dinner and then she continue to play till residents left. Some of resident stop to thank her ---she made evening so special for residents and once again enjoyable. She played our 98 yrs old special song. We can not thank her enough for a special evening she is a very sweet lady Thank you so much!!!!!!
