Providing beautiful solo harp music in the Puget Sound area for weddings, funerals, holiday entertaining, birthdays, corporate functions, and special events. Naomi is a reliable, classically-trained musician who tailors her harp music according to the unique needs of each client. A wide range of selections are available, including classical, jazz, Latin, Celtic, Christmas, wedding, religious, and world music.
Naomi was on time, quickly set up and played like an angel for two hours. I had many attendees tell me how impressed they were and asked for her name for future events. I would recommend Naomi without question.
Response from Harpist Naomi Maxwell:
Thank you so much, Melissa! It was a pleasure to play for your renovation celebration.
Response from Harpist Naomi Maxwell:
Thank you so much, Eileen! Your birthday party was lovely and I was so honored to be a part.
She was early, setup and turned before anyone arrived. She was pleasant through the evening (which got a bit loud) and was able to concentrate and play consistently through the whole event. I'd 100% recommend.
My husband and I hired Naomi to play solo harp music for our wedding ceremony. She was very organized, worked with us to provide exactly what we wanted, and played beautifully. I highly recommend her; she is a joy to work with and a wonderful musician!

What to Expect
I will arrive between 30-45 minutes prior to the start time of your event to unload, set up, and tune. In most cases, I do not require assistance, unless your venue includes multiple flights of stairs or special parking arrangements. Please feel free to contact me with any questions; I am happy to oblige special requests and want to make your event as smooth and enjoyable as possible!
At the age of five, I saw a harp for the first time. I was a flower girl in a wedding, and there was a harpist performing at the reception. At first sight, I knew I would play the harp someday. Thirteen years later, I found myself in beautiful Tacoma, Washington, pursuing a music degree at Pacific Lutheran University (PLU). I was blessed with the privilege to begin my harp studies with Nancy Dygert in Branson, Missouri, and to continue with Patricia Wooster at PLU, where I completed my Bachelor of Musical Arts degree in 2014.
The harp has taken me to many wonderful places, through performances with the PLU Symphony Orchestra, Wind Ensemble, Harp Ensemble, Sølvvinden Flute Ensemble, Jazz Combos, choirs, opera, and collaborations with chamber groups and individual musicians. Some of my favorite harp moments include performances at Benaroya Hall in Seattle, Arlene Schnitzer Hall in Portland, and the opening ceremony of the 2016 Asia Harp Festival in Seoul, South Korea. In 2018, I had the honor of performing alongside Grammy-nominated composer and harpist extraordinaire Deborah Henson-Conant, as part of a rogue harp ensemble dubbed "the harp-breakers."
Special events commemorate the most memorable moments of our lives. The harp adds a special element to events both large and small, intimate and grand. I'm honored to be able to play a part.
Additional Booking Notes
Due to the inclement nature of the beautiful Pacific Northwest, outdoor bookings require a back-up location in place.
