An Excellent Performance

Ms Otis with her "tour of the harp" along with her lilting folk-like voice charmed the audience with a variety of pieces. At the reception following her performance several people approached me to ask her to return.

Pleasure to work with

Shelley was the harpist for my October 2, 2011 wedding in Old Saybrook, CT. She is a truly a gifted harpist and I would HIGHLY recommend her! I received so many compliments on her from my guests. She is professional and such a pleasure to work with. Her music before, during, and after our ceremony was beautiful!!!
