Nominated for a 2015. Detroit Music Award for best Classical Composition and Performance! Michele is both a harpist and composer. She has fifteen years performance experience playing weddings, corporate events, charity events and private parties. She specializes in Celtic music as well as classical. She is a collaborator with other musicians both in the US as well as the UK and her album, "Languid Sunday" is on iTunes. Let her add elegance and fun with the harp to any occasion.
Michele was unable to attend but when she told me this she had already found someone else to cover for her. I really appreciated that. Kelly who came to play was professional and a pleasure to have at our event. Thank you Michele!
I employed Michele for a birthday party for my sister. All of the guests were most impressed. It was a real addition to the party. I highly recommend her .
Response from Michele Roger, Harpist:
Thank you so much, Melina for the kind words. The birthday party was spectacular!
Michele responded quickly, accommodated my timeline, played the songs I wanted, and showed up on time. I would highly recommend!

What to Expect
Harp is both elegant and beautiful. It's music gives a feeling of class, regality and peace in traditional settings like churches, weddings and funerals. The harp can also play contemporary music, which I often do in restaurants and compose for films. Private dinner parties and romantic settings are perfect places that I love to play. The harp is soft enough to not be intrusive but bold enough to set the tone for an unforgettable evening.
Classically trained as a pianist, I then studied harp just after university. I have been performing throughout Michigan and Canada for the past fifteen years. I have been fortunate enough to perform with many, local talented musicians as well as musicians from the UK. In the past five years, I have released two albums, first a Celtic, the second Classical. Both are available on iTunes. I teach harp in a different city each day and also perform in the classical ensemble, Belissima Musica.
Additional Booking Notes
My harp is equipped with an internal pick up that plugs into any amplifier or in house system.
