"Beautiful Music! Sophie Graf played her lovely harp for my wedding. Her music added greatly to the ambiance of my garden ceremony and felt absolutely perfect for what I wanted. She is a very talented musician. She was very nice to work with and very respectful of my choices in music. I highly recommend her!" Arbie F., married 4/2/19, 5/5 stars Create a unique, unforgettable event by including a harpist! The harp on its own adds elegance and beauty to any event, but with the right harpist, the beauty of the music becomes transcendent. I am that harpist. I have both a bachelor's and a master's degree in harp performance, so I am exceedingly well trained as a classical harpist. I have about ten years of experience playing at receptions, galas, and weddings, so I have learned how to manage unpredictable day-of challenges and have also built up a range of popular music selections that you and your guests will enjoy. For receptions and events, I typically play background music for cocktail hour, although having me continue to play through dinner is an excellent option as well. The harp is loud enough to be heard but will not overpower any conversation. If necessary, I can provide amplification. I enjoy playing a mix of light classical, jazz standards, and Disney music, however, I also take requests ahead of time, possibly for a fee. For wedding ceremonies, I typically play prelude music (background while the guests are sitting down), the processional (while the bridal party walks down the aisle), the recessional (as the bridal party walks back down the aisle), and a bit of postlude music (while the guests leave). Some favorite selections include A Thousand Years (Perri), Hallelujah (Cohen), Canon in D (Pachelbel), Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring (Bach), and Ode to Joy (Beethoven). I will guide you through any questions you might have in the music selection process. I am Catholic, so I have an easy time following along with the complex structure of a Catholic wedding mass. Again, if necessary, I can provide amplification. Please visit my WeddingWire page for more 5 star reviews! My favorite past event locations include the Grand Del Mar's Michelin-starred Addison restaurant, the San Diego Zoo's Safari Park, Heinz Field, home of the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Duquesne Club, and Coasterra Restaurant on Harbour Island. I am based in North Country of San Diego, CA, but have traveled as far north as Temecula. I promise to guide and support you through your event music planning and to deliver the best experience for your guests on the big day! I am also available for recitals, orchestral concerts, and lessons. Please get in touch for more information.

Elegant, classy and talented. Made for a wonderful wedding ceremony. Our guests informed us multiple times how much they loved the harpist for the ceremony.
