Wendy was amazing. People loved knowing the songs that were played during the event.
Playing with the Russian orchestra Wendy's harp sounded quite beautiful and melodic. She is a true professional. I've heard here a number of times in a variety of settings and she never fails to impress with her talent and professionalism.
Wendy was so easy to work with, as she was so nice and incredibly organized. We hired her to play at our wedding cocktail hour, and so many guests complimented her performance. If you want a magical touch to your wedding ceremony or cocktail hour, then definitely get Wendy to play her harp for you!
I hired Wendy to play at my ceremony and cocktail hour. All I am going to say is that she is phenomenon. Wendy is so organized, professional and of course an incredible harpist. Wendy suggested and offered many music choices for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. From the beginning of hiring Wendy to after the wedding, everything was perfect. Wendy is truly an amazing harpist. My guests loved the music. It really really added such an elegant touch to the ceremony and cocktail hour. Wendy played many different types of music which we all enjoyed very much. I could not be happier that I had chosen Wendy. I chose Wendy when I was planning my wedding because of the great reviews everyone left for her. I am writing this review hoping to help those of you who are looking an amazing and professional harpist to play at your wedding or any other occasions, Wendy is going to be perfect for you.
Wendy is a great harpist and has a very pleasant demeanor. She simply does not loose her cool. She is a "Julliard girl" in the nicest way and is a master of orchestral playing and a wide wide variety of wonderful solo and chamber repertoire. She will charm everyone through her musical approach and is well worth her fee.
Our wedding day was complete because of Wendy. I had nothing planned for the music; she played the harp for us. She had music ideas, sent me to websites to hear her music. She was on time and was just simply amazing! I trusted her as the professional & she was just fabulous! She completed our wedding ceremony....
I loved having Wendy at our wedding! The music was beautiful and the harp was spectacular. We brought in Wendy's organist and also used 3 other musicians for the day and everything was perfect. We could not have been happier.
Wendy played the harp at my wedding ceremony on June 11, 2011. She did an unbelievable job, the music was amazing! Afterwards, I had so many guests tell me that they loved hearing her play and it was very unique to have at a wedding. Wendy was a pleasure to work with from the beginning and she is truly a professional and I would recommend her to anyone.
I am pleased to be able to provide feedback for Wendy Kerner Lucas. Wendy is a harpist of the highest professional standards. As principal violist for the Chicago Lyric Opera Orchestra, I have 30 years worth of experience as a professional classical musician, and Wendy upholds the very highest standard of musical performance. Wendy is a fabulous talent, reliable, a pleasure to work with and her fees are incredibly reasonable for someone of her stature and experience. Anyone considering hiring Wendy for an event is guaranteed the highest satisfaction possible.
Wendy played the harp at our son's recent wedding, and her music added much beauty and class to the ceremony. Everybody remarked to us afterward about the beautiful music and how it absolutely made the ceremony extra special. I had actually hired Wendy through an internet ad and found her to be an absolute joy to work with. She always answered my email questions immediately, and was most accommodating. She sent me many choices for the musical selections and was very concerned that we would be pleased with her performance. I am delighted to recommend Wendy Kerner Lucas to anyone who wants beautiful music played by a first class professional.

My husband and I are classical music lovers. We see concerts at Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center regularly. We wanted music for my nephews Wedding Reception and found Wendy Kerner Lucas on Gigsalad.
We hired Wendy and she arranged for Classical Duo of flute and harp. We were blown away by their playing.
Their music was as beautiful and of concert hall quality. Hire Wendy, you'll be lucky to hear her play. Their music made the whole evening. It was perfect!
Wendy became fascinated by the magic of the harp as a young child, and at the age of seven she began playing the harp. She has won many awards for her music including the Artists International Competition (with two prize concerts in Carnegie Recital Hall)and the American Harp Society's Concert Artist Auditions - resulting in concerts across the United States. She is a Juilliard School graduate with Bachelor and Master degrees in harp performance and she loves sharing her music. She has performed for weddings, private parties, religious ceremonies, anniversaries, business functions, product demonstrations, holiday celebrations, educational programs, concerts, and more. She maintains an active harp studio teaching harp lessons to students of all ages. Her extensive experience includes regular performances throughout the tri-state area and New England, as well as throughout the country and to Europe, performing in a wide range of venues. She has performed for former First Lady Hillary Clinton, the Queen of Thailand, Johnny Mathis, the Three Irish Tenors, Leona Helmsley and has appeared at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Fordham University, Saks, and the NY Botanical Gardens. Her clients have included IBM, Nivea, People's Bank, and the Glen Arbor Golf Club. Her repertoire includes favorite classical selections, well known show tunes, beautiful love songs, magical Celtic music, delightful Holiday selections and more. Whether as a soloist or in ensemble with flute, violin, cello and other instruments, her talents and personality will enchant you. She also performs regularly in an Irish group, (www.Themselvesct.com) performs with numerous orchestras, and has a CD out on the Delos label of flute and harp music entitled "Sounds of the Seine". She has a large studio of harp students, too. The New York Times called Wendy "first rate" and you will too! A recent client wrote, "What a lovely afternoon of music. Our event was a success due in part to your talent on the harp. Many guests mentioned that the music perfected the event. Thank you. I look forward to working with you again."

I need a hard, flat surface to play on as I must balance the harp in order to play. It needs to be shaded, and if necessary I can bring a small canopy for that purpose. I charge a small fee for that service, to cover the added set up and break down time.
