Meghan is a classical harpist available for any event needs. She is an experienced wedding performer, comfortable performing classical and contemporary arrangements on the harp. Perfect for hotel events, outdoor events, formal and relaxed. She is reliable, prompt, and flexible, able to tailor music choices to each event's specific needs.
I hired Meghan to play Christmas music for a small dinner party in my home. She arrived well in advance of the agreed upon start time to set up, and set the tone with a wonderful assortment of beautiful music, played well. My guests were excited to get to see the harp "up close and personal" and the music was a nice backdrop for the dinner. I highly recommend Meghan.
Beautiful, elegant, graceful and heavenly - are just a few words that many of our guests and us used to describe the music that Meghan performed at our wedding. From the start she was very prompt in returning phone calls, emails and was extremely easy to work with. We had a number of songs that we asked her to play and she did so marvelously! We were even able to arrange it so that those who were viewing our wedding online, could hear her beautiful music.
We would without a doubt recommend Meghan to anyone and everyone that is looking for a harpist!
Side note: Meghan just happened to live down the street from the location where we were getting married; so she literally wheeled her harp down the street - what an awesome memory (and photos) of seeing that happen!
Meghan provided the most beautiful harp music for our wedding ceremony this past May. We were absolutely thrilled with her professionalism throughout the booking process and with her day-of performance. Meghan not only helped us select our music, she also learned two "special request" selections just for us! Everyone commented on how personal and heartfelt our ceremony was and Meghan's musical talent was a huge part of it. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a harpist!
Meghan performed at a social event that I hosted in Madison, Wisconsin last year. She was very accommodating to work with, and was a real hit with the folks in attendance. She did a great job in adapting her performance to the venue and the audience. I would ask her back for another performance any time!
When Megan showed up for our wedding I was very impressed, she was on time and set up rather quickly, when i walked out and heard the beautiful music she played it made the wedding feel so glamours! she also can help with ideas if your lost, I would recommend Megan for any event in a heart beat! thanks Megan you did an amazing job .
Meghan was phenomenal to work with and a true professional (she was even at the venue before I was !). She made planning a breeze and was helpful with coming up with suggestions when we couldn't make up our minds. She was even willing to try and accommodate my husband's request for an incredibly bizarre song. The music itself was so lovely and everything that I'd hoped it would be, just perfect for my wedding. And everyone afterwards said the music was beautiful. I had been worried about volume since the venue had a waterfall, but I was pleasantly surprised that I could hear the harp perfectly. It was wonderful having Meghan play my wedding and I heartily recommend her for any occasion!
