Claire Greene is a classically trained harpist who is lovely to work with. Her music at our son’s wedding was absolutely beautiful. We worked with Claire from a distance, as we are in Massachusetts and the wedding was at Mon Ami Winery on Lake Erie in Ohio. Everything just worked, from our early discussions of types of music to play, her very helpful guidance on timing and music choices, straight through to the wedding day. Claire handled logistics perfectly. She drove several hours to the event, arriving well ahead of time and was in the wine cellar venue with harp in place when we arrived. Perfect. Her music was a mix of classical pieces and popular songs which sounded absolutely lovely. We were thrilled by the day and her music made it especially beautiful. Claire is professional, an accomplished musician with excellent experience, very pleasant to work with, reliable and organized. Everything you want for a special day.
Showed up early, set up by herself, and played beautifully.
Claire did a wonderful job and was very professional. She was punctual. Her playing was beautiful. Would highly recommend.
Claire gave an amazing performance and set the mood for the private dinner that was hosted at our Winery. We have since added her to our vendor list, she was very sweet and arrived right on time! We think she would be wonderful for Weddings or at a cocktail reception/dinner. Thank you Claire!
