We are grateful that Dr. Ted Nichelson was available to play for our Mother's day brunch. He was easy to coordinate with- was on time- and sociable. Having him play added a magical loving element to our gathering. This is definitely a day we will never forget. Thank you so much, we look forward to the next event.

Ted was a harpist at our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. We have selected the songs to be played in advance (Ted has a music library with suggestions) and the performance went smoothless. Ted is reliable, arrived early to set up the harp, and truly is a professional. Our guests enjoyed the live harp music and we are grateful to Ted for his outstanding performance.
