Lara played during my wedding ceremony. The song selection was stunning. If you want someone who is professional, kind, and an incredible musician that will create a beautiful atmosphere for your event, do not hesitate on hiring her!

Absolutely perfect. Not a single bad thing to say about Lara! As soon as she and her violinist started playing, the venue’s vibe turned “magical”.

Lara was so great to work with. I trusted that she would be the expert when it comes to music choice and she did not disappoint. Lara's music made an amazing day even better.

Lara is a Harp perfectionist. Our ceremony music was remarkable thanks to Lara. She is worth 10 times more then what we paid and I am grateful she was part of our ceremony. I would recommend Lara to all

Lara played at my Mom's funeral, and the music was so beautiful. The family requested a few specific songs, and Lara was kind enough to play them. We had a lot of compliments from family and friends how beautiful the music was. Thank you Lara for making my Mom's funeral a beautiful remembrance Barbara E.

Lara was extremely professional ... perfectly accommodating ... and remarkably talented ... She arrived early and played beautifully while adjusting to the volume and tone of the room ... Her presence made a difficult event (memorial service) so much more easy to get through ... We would be thrilled to recommend her to friends ... Thank you Lara ...

Lara was lovely, responsive, and thorough every step of the way. Her talent was huge and she had a gathering of people around her making sure they heard her versus going directly into the memorial service room. She was extra thoughtful with her coat and harp cover and she made sure she put them in a location that would not be disruptive at all when she left. It felt kind, attentive, and deeply sensitive. I am so glad she was available for our special event to honor my dad. I wish her the very best in her harp playing and using her talents for such a beautiful purpose. Warmly, Diane

Lara was wonderful playing the harp at my wedding. Lara was very helpful and accomodating regarding our desired songlist. Lara is a very joyful person that is sincere and a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend her my family and friends to play at events.

She was a wonderful performer. She played beautifully. She took the time to know details about the services that would make it memorable by playing the music that would be special and appropriate for a funereal service. Many attendees complimented her playing. I will look forward to booking her again for another occasion.

From booking to performance Lara was professional and easy to work with. I trusted her to play tunes that were appropriate for my mother’s service and she delivered in spades. If I had the need to hire a Celtic musician again, I would without hesitation hire her again.

WeddingReviewed on November 30, 2017From Oakland, CA

Lara's music was a wonderful addition to our wedding. She was able to play our requested song, which was so special! And she took the time to make sure the photographer got some unique photos with the harp as well as the sheet music of "our song". I would highly recommend Lara to anyone looking for beautiful music to accompany their event.

CelebrationReviewed on September 12, 2018From Sacramento, CA

Lara played the piano for my sister's Celebration of Life. We had a few requests of song choices but left the rest up to Lara. She did an excellent job. She is so highly talented and her music added just the right atmosphere to our event. I received many positive comments from guests. I would definitely recommend Lara to anyone in need of her talents.

Lara, You are AMAZING! I wish I had time to spend with you before/after the ceremony just to say Thank You! Everyone said the music was lovely, and my younger cousins were so surprised when they heard the contemporary music. You made a difference and we loved everything. You are so talented and wonderful. Once I get the photos from my photographer, I will email them to you! My only regret was not taking a photo with you. <3

Couldn't have had a better experience at my mothers funeral reception. Lara was accommodating and sensitive to the nature of the reception and truly we felt that she was part of our family. I would highly recommend Lara for any type of reception. Her musicianship is of the highest standard and given our family are all musicians we are all in agreement that her professionalism is top notch. The violinist she had playing with her was extraordinary. Thank you for a meaningful experience.

Lara was our harpist for our September wedding at the UC Berkeley Botanical Garden. She was very helpful in planning, giving advice of what songs would or wouldn't work, what instruments would sound best with each song, and offering suggestions to make the ceremony a success. She was very professional, had a seamless set up and take down. Her music was absolutely beautiful. She is incredibly talented. I cannot recommend her enough!

Lara is amazing! Easy to work with and very accommodating. She learned my favorite Filipino song for my bridal march and it was perfect. My guests really enjoyed her music, I wish I had time to listen during cocktail hour. Thank you Lara!
