About Vendor

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

*Awarded “Best Of” for the past 10 years in a row* The harp has a natural beauty and delicacy that evokes something ancient and timeless. My goal is to make your event memorable through the beauty of my music and the innate fairytale quality of the Celtic harp and the elegance of the Classical harp. As a graduate of UC Berkeley, dept of music and having studied music in Paris, France, I am also a professional Classical pianist and flutist. Through Classical, Celtic and contemporary repertoire, I provide a palette of colors that can include a violinist and/or cellist or simply solo harp. My Classical trio has been awarded the prestigious "Top Classical Trio" by GM for the past 10 years in a row (Amethyst Trio). I have been booked over 555 times from my sites here on GM alone. I have been performing as a soloist for over 25 years in the Bay Area and in Europe and I am also the lead musician in 2 award-winning groups that perform throughout the U.S - providing the highest standard in professional performance. I have recorded many CDs, including "Arts & Letters" from the Mixolydian label, and on the Celtic Sands and Skitz labels. I have played many celebrity weddings and events, including the cast party opening of the movie “Winchester”, event aboard the USS Hornet with Buzz Aldrin, private wedding of Jason Newsted of Metallica, Private event for Neal Shoen of Journey, assorted NFL players and a Chinese film star. "Lara Garner lit up the stage each time she told her audience a story, each time her virtuosic fingers found tone and light on piano and harp, each time she smiled while playing music that she loves." .....Jeans Magazines Review April 2009 My music degree is from UC Berkeley (1989) with an M.A. from SF State University in International Relations (1995). I lived in Paris, France for three years where I performed and developed my style and also in Rome, Italy for one year. As a 5-star performer since 2007, Lara has been booked over 555 times here on GM from 4 sites. I have 4 harps and various keyboards - including a top of the line Sandpiper 5'5" Celtic harp, a Classical French-made pedal harp, a smaller Classical harp, and a full 88-keyed weighted hammer-action black stage piano with a beautiful grand piano sound. I also provide my own discreet wireless amplification, to maintain not only a performance that can be heard, but also something that is visually pleasing. **I am a FULLY-INSURED performer. This is a requirement at many venues, including San Francisco City Hall and the large SF hotels and Museums. Certificate provided upon request.**

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on June 3, 2022From San Francisco, CA

Excellent experience! Lara was very professional, friendly and knowledgeable. The music she played was absolutely beautiful. Couldn't be more satisfied.

Memorial ServiceReviewed on February 21, 2022From San Jose, CA

I used The Bash to learn of harpists available in San Jose to play at my mother's memorial service and was contacted by 4 harpists. I selected Lara and would definitely hire her again. Her music set the tone and enhanced our memorial service, plus she was professional, accommodating, flexible, prompt and affordable. Thank you, Lara, for playing for us.

WeddingReviewed on May 21, 2021From Pescadero, CA

The music for my wedding. The music made my day magical, and the service was terrific. I would recommend this musician to any bride who wants to make their day spectacular. My husband and I are pleased, and if we could get married again, we would hire her.
