Best in the Milky Way Harp and Piano performance for your special event.
We were lucky to have Larisa perform at our engagement party. She arrived early to set up and everyone loved the music! Larisa is very professional and easy to communicate with - I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a performer.
Larisa was amazing for our event. She was early and set up her harp in the best location. The guests loved the selection of music she played during the cocktail party. I would highly recommend Larisa for special events. She is very professional and plays her harp beautifully.
Larisa arrived 30 minutes early for setup and skillfully performed during our party. Her music created an outstanding ambiance. We were very happy with her performance and received many compliments from our guests. We highly recommend her.
Having Larisa play for us in the park was magical. She is a true professional. It was lovely background music for a wonderful event. This was a surprise for my mother's 80th birthday and my mother was overjoyed. I did not give 5 stars because Larisa packed up around 6:30pm and our agreement indicated 7pm. We were busy visiting and catching up with each other so it was OK and did not hinder our plans.
Our family recently had Larisa play harp at the Memorial Service for our dad. She was very professional and was able to accommodate a wide range of requests. She also coordinated with the singer at our event and came early to rehearse with her. Her demeanor was very apprpriate throughout but when it came to playing one of dad's favorite songs after the service, a gentle smile crossed her face which warmed me. You could see how much she loves what she does. I hope to have another event, one less somber, so that she could again share her talents with us. I wouldn't hesitate to hire her for any event, if you were having an open house and wanted to add something special to greet your guests she would be a key ingredient. Incredibly well trained.
I cannot say enough about Larisa! My daughters' wedding was made extra special by Larisa and her harp. The harp, by far, makes any special event extra special. Choose Larisa - you will be very happy!
Larisa performed at our corporate event in June 2013. He exquisite skill coupled with her professionalism was the perfect fit for our evening reception. She added an elegant touch that made our event memorable.
Lisa set up and performed in a professional manner. Our guests enjoyed her tone and were able to hold conversations.
I met Larissa at a local concert in Northern California. What can I say to describe her impact? Not o ly you see the harp but you notice her powerful and controlled energy behind the strings. Somehow it is conveyed in her performance, a must hear experience. And here is the deal, must seen must hear. Larissa played at our wedding: sunlight in the ceremony. I have also knew her communicating with her students at the performing arts academy. She is fun, certainly you will enjoy her musical presence.
