Iraida Poberezhnaya is a consummate musician! Her harp performance at our wedding rehearsal and lunch was fantastically beautiful and masterly. Her choice of repertoire and it's execution was superb and added so much to our wedding celebration. Many of our guests remarked on her excellent playing. In addition, she is also charming, very professional and easy to work with. We will definitely recommend her enthusiastically to our friends and relatives! Thank you, Iraida for making our special day one that we will never forget! Sincerely, Evelyn & Paul Askew

Wow! Absolutely wonderful. Had a few musicians sitting at my table and they were blown away by the harpist. Loved her. Easy to interact with, gracious, and punctual with communication via emails/phone. Arrived at the ceremony in plenty of time to set up.
