I am a harpist and pianist that performs throughout Northern California and in Europe. I am also the lead musician in two musical ensembles: a Classical trio called Amethyst Trio (found here on GS) and a Celtic trio called Celtic Sands.
I play in Classical, Celtic and popular contemporary styles. Having played hundreds of weddings and events, I am a good choice if you want someone who can make your special day go smoothly and beautifully.
Lara was communicative, prompt, and very talented on the harp. It was a corporate staff meeting wherein I also asked her to also stage a moment of quasi rageful tension between the speaker and her music, which she agreed to in spite of not being an actor. It went very swimmingly. She was also asked to improvise music to a meditation then a corporate natured chat. She certainly exceeded my expectations. I had also forgotten how cosmically relaxing the harp is.
Lara did a beautiful job for our ceremony.
Pleasant, professional, ideal band for our event.
I had Lara play piano for my 60th birthday party. We had a wonderful time! She played a wide variety of musical styles and was sure to include all my special requests. She was the final component that made the evening so magic and memorable! Plus, Lara is friendly, accommodating, professional and charges a reasonable fee. I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to make their event special! I just had to laugh when Lara ended our evening with a seemingly effortless Haydn concerto then held up the music and said "that's a lot of notes!" Indeed it was a lot of notes: it looked like someone dumped a gallon on ants on the sheet music! All I can say is I'm glad I paid her by the hour and not by the note! Brava Lara!
What to Expect
Beautiful and elegant harp or piano music for your event. For events where piano is requested, but there is no piano on site, I bring my top-of-the-line Yamaha 88-key stage piano/keyboard with authentic grand piano sound. For harp, you may choose from my Celtic or Classical style harp.
