Cocktail PartyReviewed on November 30, 2010From Greenville, SC

Emily is a very talented and professional musician. Her music provided the perfect backdrop for the private cocktail party at our gallery. I would recommend her without hesitation to anyone looking to hire a professional harpist.

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on September 25, 2010From Hickory, NC

Emily made my wedding day worry free in regards to music. She was willing to work with my vocalist before the ceremony to figure out what key she needed to play the songs in. I received so many positive comments concerning her music. She played so beautifully. My only regret is that as the bride, I couldn't hear all the music she played. I would definitely refer her to anyone in need of a harpist. Thank you Emily!!!
