We hired Alix to play harp during our welcome, part of the ceremony, and the cocktail hour of our wedding. Alix was easy to work with, highly professional, and we loved her work! She's a very talented harpist - and we received numerous compliments after our wedding ceremony saying she was incredible, with beautiful technique and poise. The harp itself seated behind our ceremony area looked amazing!! Highest recommendations for this superb musician!

Alix was just amazing, she went over every detail and nailed it. She arrived at our church 1 hour early and with her beautiful harp stayed till the end. We had trouble finding a singer for our event so we asked Alix and she arranged for a terrific Baritone Christian to sing at our event. Can't say enough good things about Alix. Simply amazing ??

Alix was extremely professional from our very first conversation. She showed up on time and played beatiful music. She is also VERY sweet and checked in a couple days before our wedding to confirm time and place. While planning a wedding this was so important to me! I highly recommend Alix! Thank you Alix!

Alix was terrific to work with, I would use her again without question. She is very sweet, professional, and accommodating when I had last minute changes. The only thing I wish I could have changed was to thank her personally for her performance which was AWESOME, but as the bride it was a crazy day for me. So, if you are looking for a harpist go with Alix!!!

Professional, talented, and accommodating. She showed up 15 minutes early to set up. We had a Catholic mass and Miss Raspe was very familiar with how the ceremony worked- she knew exactly when to play her harp. Price was very reasonable compared to everyone else on gig masters. I also requested for contemporary songs and she was able to make her magic! She also stayed a few minutes past the hour she was paid for. She's highly recommended and would love to user her again. Thank you! Sheryll
