I am a harpist and pianist that performs throughout Northern California and in Europe. I am also the lead musician in Amethyst Trio, a Classical trio found here on GS and at the Amethyst Trio website.
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 responded first to my last minute request for playing at my wedding ceremony, and communicated well with us regarding the music list. She is on time, professional and possibly of the best value harpist you can find in the area. Highly recommend her!
We cannot give enough accolades to Lara. Her beautiful music enchanted the room adding that extra special touch for our guests and wedding ceremony. Thank you Lara for all that you did… Beautifully done.
We absolutely loved having Lara with us for our special day. She was kind, accommodating, communicative, and professional. We sold absolutist recommend Lara for your special event.
Lara was great to communicate and plan with. She plays lovely music and we appreciate her flexibility in setting up in the best location.
Lara was available on short notice and played beautiful music on her harp for our Mom’s funeral. We will definitely hire her again for future events.
Lara was friendly and accommodating. Her song choices were vast, and the variety from oldies to classical, even contemporary choices made it easy for us to choose the right music for us.
Lara is a lovely person and an excellent harpist. She made our event heavenly.
We hired Lara to play at our son's garden wedding in our home in October. Lara arrived on time and was even open to me playing alongside her for one piece (A Thousand Years) as the ceremony started. She provided beautiful background music that wafted through the garden as our guests arrived and she did an amazing job of adding more depth to the song we played together as I, a beginner, early-intermediate player, messed up one measure and she flawlessly covered for me until I could get back on track. Thank you so much Lara for helping me to realize an unforgettable memory and for being such a beautiful part of our day. Please forgive me for this late review.
So grateful to have Lara available for our wedding. All of our guests commented on how her music was elegant, graceful, and full of style. She has a robust musics repertoire and we especially loved the fact that she was able to play a few of our favorite r&b songs. She is truly gifted and talented.
Lara was professional, kind, and very responsive throughout the entire process. I would recommend her in a heartbeat!
She arrived 30 minutes ahead of time. Started on time for her gig and played the right music for the wedding. She was very courteous...I highly recommend her for wedding events..Thanks Lara
Lara was great from the beginning, sharing ideas and tips for our wedding in the Shakespeare Garden. She went above and beyond. The music was so lovely, from classical to pop renditions, it was such a complement to the ceremony!
We loved having Lara play the harp for our wedding!
Thank you so much for playing for our wedding ceremony. Our guests all loved the music and it was the perfect touch to our special day! Great communication throughout!
She played really nice I just wish it was a little bit louder. I understand tho because the event was outdoor.
Lara played the harp for my wedding ceremony this past weekend. I was running around most of the time and could only really focus on her as I was walking down the aisle and a little bit before I was to come in, but what I heard was magical! She was extremely professional and easy to communicate with and she played exactly what I wanted. Thank you so much, Lara!
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.
