READ THE REVIEW OF A RECENT CLIENT:
Sharon and Serena provided the perfect ambiance to our "Downton Abbey" Surprise Tea Party for Susan! Their talent, enthusiasm, and friendliness were mentioned to me (the host) many times by all who attended. Had the pleasure of attending their practice session where they both went above and beyond by learning to play "Downton Abbey" music for the tea! I could not have asked for a more talented pair to take us all back to the 1920's to make this a very special day for Susan (who was "joyfully crying" that day). Thank you both for a memorable day with my wife and friends! It could not have been better! --Dennis B.

The journey of Queen Victoria's music has a story all its own.

Harpist Serena O'Meara is in the lineage of John Thomas, harpist to Queen Victoria. Mr. Thomas arranged beautiful piano and harp duets that were performed for Queen Victoria. Mr. Thomas taught fellow Welshman Henry J Williams who then immigrated in 1904 to perform with the Minneapolis Symphony and teach harp at the University of Minnesota. Mr. Williams began teaching Gladys Hubner in 1921. Ms. Hubner played Second Harp next to Mr. Williams, performed on KOMO Seattle radio, Radio City Music Hall and Broadway before returning home to again play Second Harp with the Minnesota Orchestra and freelance performances. Serena O'Meara began her studies with Ms. Hubner in 1974 and that is how she has come into the possession of music performed for Queen Victoria!

Sharon and Serena made our Ladies Victorian Tea extra special. They both dressed the part and the music was perfect for this event. All the participants loved the beautiful music while they sipped tea and ate desserts. The event was a huge success, and I appreciated the Royal Events Musicians working with my budget. Their professionlism through out made the planning very easy for me. I hope to hire them again in the future.

Sharon could not have been more generous or accommodating. From our beginning inquiries until after the ceremony, she made us feel confident and excited about the music. She also went out of her way to learn some new songs for us, attended our rehearsal, and sent a lovely thank you note. All of these gestures made me feel like she understood how special this day was for us.
