Sandra was truly a blessing at our Christmas Party at Mosaic. I would highly recommend her. She truly has a gift and it was such a pleasure working with her! I will be connecting with her again in the near future.
Sandra provided a lovely evening of amazing music. It made our celebration most enjoyable and everyone thoroughly enjoyed both Sandra and her music. The pieces she chose fit perfectly with our theme. I recommend Sandra for anyone planning an event with finesse
We had a small memorial for my father in law and hired Sandra to play Irish/Celtic music in the background to provide pleasant background music for the event. The music was beautiful and Sandra was fantastic to work with. My family was completely satisfied and thank Sandra so much for helping to make the memorial a very special evening.
Sandra was fantastic. She played beautifully and with grace and style. Her suggestions were perfect and she made the whole process easy and comfortable. We highly recommend Sandra for any wedding event, cocktail party or gathering.
Very good. Sandra was excellent.
Sandra played the harp at a funeral I coordinated. She did an amazing job. She played so beautifully the whole night with out taking attention away from the service. She worked well with the other musician and was so professional and sweet. She is incredibly talented and I will be recommending her to future clients.
My wedding reception was one of the biggest, most difficult to manage because there were about 700 guests in one large banquet room. For Sandra’s harp to play over the talking crowd, she was able to work with our DJ to amplify the sound. The music was calming and beautiful and I could actually hear the toasts as I was visiting each table. It gave rest to my ears from the loudness going on all day. There was another confusion that happened in the middle of her performance: an MC that my mother had hired without telling me came up to me and asked if he could cut the harp show short and start the karaoke. I was not in the right mindset at that time and quickly replied with “yes sure sure but let her play again after a few karaoke songs”. Time passed by and I didn’t get to see her on stage again and I was furious at the MC. However, I didn’t want to keep her waiting on the side any longer and said she could go home if that was better. Through all this, Sandra kept her calm and she was very understanding. Even though her performance was unplanned to be short for us, for her to bring a real harp and let everyone hear just the tip of what a harp can do was such a blessing. I highly, highly recommend Sandra for your event and I hope she will be able to play for you peacefully with no interference.
Sandra played her harp during a Visitation for me.......her music was so soothing for the guests and family.
She gets 5 stars on her professionalism and musical talent.
HIGHLY Recommend her !!!!!!!
Sandra is so awesome
Sandra Salstrom played the harp for one of our school events and was just wonderful to work with. She is very nice, well mannered and so easy to work with. Always called back on time, answered all questions, arrived on time and was very compliant. If you need a harpist, don't hesitate to call Sandra Salstrom. Carmen Fitzpatrick
Sandra was on time, sounded amazing, flexible and extremely easy to work with. I am sure we will use her again. And did I mention, SOUNDED AMAZING! Very talented harpist!!
Thanks Sandra for playing for our wedding. No doubt for her skills since she's a music teacher. She's also very detailed, knowledgeable and punctual. I highly recommend her!
Sandra did an amazing job at this event. She wore a beautiful gown that just added to the elegance of the Harp. Guests had nothing but positive feedback. I would definitely use Sandra again for future events.
Our condominium's Holiday Party had never booked live music of any kind and settled on a harp. There were more than a few out there, but Ms. Salstrom's reviews were quite good and as we found out, well deserved.
Booking was easy via email and her rates gave us a nice break from 2 hours to 3, so we could have music for the entire event.
She arrived well ahead of time, was set up and ready to play at the start of the party, and was dressed elegantly. Her mix of traditional Christmas and classical music was perfect. Moreso, the harp was a perfect ambiance for the gathering; not too loud, but always audible.
Our owners were highly pleased with the entertainment and it just elevated everyone's experience for the whole evening. We would highly recommend her.
Sandra is a professional through and through. She was prompt in her responses to my inquiries and delivered as promised. Her music brought the right amount of elegance to our dinner. Our guests were extremely pleased.
Sandra was professional in every way. She provided a high class atomsphere to our event. Our students enjoyed her performance. I highly recommend her!
We recently hired Sandra to perform at our club's annual end of the semester luncheon. She was punctual, played beautifully throughout the lunch and after our presentation of awards in a range of music from seasonal to classical hits. If you need to class up your next event, hire Sandra Saltrom.
A Fairy Tale and Happy Ending for these Uncertain Times:
I started playing harp as a young adult. How's that for surprising? In grade school I had danced for hours every day to music in our living room, plus I skated to music 2-3 times a week at the local rink fantasizing that I was a ballerina on skates. So, I guess that my affinity for music plus my desire from the age of 4 to play the harp finally manifested in an irrepressible urge to become a musician--much to my father's chagrin.
Within a year of moving from little Lacey, Washington to Seattle, a city with harps and harpists and harp teachers, I had auditioned for and was accepted into the School of Music at the University of Washington in Seattle. Here I finished an undergraduate degree. And then I moved to Austin, Texas where I completed a Master's degree in music at The University of Texas at Austin.
The next surprise was when I decided to find something to do that would make more money. Computers, I decided. And the surprise was that my music degree became my entree into the field of technology. They figured that anyone who could accomplish a music degree with its exacting detail would also be good at technology. Fortunately, because of the volatility in the technology market I've come back to my first love—the harp—and have devoted myself to such a much more lucrative endeavor(s). I also am a part time professor of music for the Lonestar College System in Houston, Texas.
I have played professionally for the last 20 years, taught many skilled young harpists, and in the last 5 years have enjoyed doing solely what I love best. And I recently played for President George H.W. Bush and Texas Governor Rick Perry.
