Katherine did an excellent job,very professional.I would without a doubt engage her again
Katherine performed for our wedding ceremony at the Dalhousie University Club in September 2017. She provided an excellent selection of music for the processional/signing/recessional and receiving line. Booking and setup was effortless, despite us planning from away in Seattle. The music was absolutely beautiful and provided just the atmosphere that we were looking for. The harp itself is a lovely addition to the wedding aesthetic. Our guests were in awe, and we would recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat.
