About
Mary Keppeler has been communicating through the elegance and grace of the harp for over thirty years. She expresses clear, clean sounds through resonant, restful, yet energizing music. Mixing classical, popular and folk arrangements, she creates music that can convey moods ranging from playfulness to quiet reflection or nostalgia to elegant wonder.

Mary plays for weddings, receptions, private parties, funerals, corporate and charitable functions. Some of her clients for private functions have included the American Club, Milwaukee Athletic Club, Milwaukee Brewers Corporation, Milwaukee Art Museum, Medical College of Wisconsin, Walgreens Corporation, Kohler Corporation, Culvers Corporation, American Cancer Society, Waukesha Symphony Orchestra, and Wisconsin Parkinson Association. Additionally, Mary plays for Afternoon Tea at Milwaukee's elegant and historic Pfister Hotel from 2005-2013, and 2016-2017.

Events for which Mary has played have taken her to interesting performance venues, including an island via ferry, an island via private airplane, the beaches of Lake Michigan, county and state parks, a Chicago nightclub, botanical gardens, the Domes, stately hotels, rooftop terraces, the student-filled halls of a Milwaukee public school, private backyards, country clubs, a bathroom showroom, a jewelry store, a department store makeup display, retirement communities, a lighthouse, and museums. She has played as a bride rode in to her ceremony on horseback, and as a groom flew in to his lakeside ceremony on a pontoon plane. She has performed under the blaze of stage lights and artificial falling snow, under the light of crystal chandeliers and in the summer sun, in churches and a cathedral, under trees, in a meadow, by lakes, and in a barn.

In addition to solo harp engagements, Mary is active as a free-lance orchestra and ensemble harpist. She plays principal harp for the Manitowoc Symphony. Other performances include those with the Sheboygan Symphony, Green Bay Symphony, Beloit Janesville Symphony, Concord Chamber Orchestra, Carroll University Wind Symphony, Edgewood Chamber Orchestra, Skylight Opera orchestra, Dudley Birder Chorale, Lutheran A Capella Choir, South Shore Chorale, Master Singers of Milwaukee, Cluj (Romania) Opera Chorus, Tokyo International Singers, and Mannheim Steamroller.

Special thanks to Steve Jarvis for photos # 9 and #16.

Mary did a fantastic job for us. It was a very special wedding plan and we had special requests from her for the ceremony music and she was a rockstar! She accompanied my friend Jayne with singing and it worked out beautifully. She took special care in rehearsing with Jayne prior to the wedding and on the day of. So happy that I chose her for our special day! I recommend her to everyone who would like her to perform! She is super talented. Professional and such a joy to work with! Hope that I can have her at a special occasion in the future!

Mary played for my wedding ceremony. Everything was beautiful and turned out just like my fairytale dreams. She played 4 different songs throughout the ceremony and knew exactly when to play them and when to stop. I would recommend her to anyone that is looking for a harpist for their special occasion. She was able to travel a longer distance (1 hour) which was one of the most challenging parts of choosing a harpist. Her prices were the best I came across. I will forever appreciate that she was able to make my ceremony everything I wanted and more.

I'm at a loss for how to express my gratitude to Mary for her services for my proposal. I knew from the professionalism and genuine good nature in Mary's original response that she would be the one I had to have as the centerpiece to my plans. Her responses were being prompt and clear that she would be willing to do as much as she could to accommodate my requests. She went above and beyond my expectations when she volunteered to help scout the location and even pick up roses. She executed perfectly and her performance was the best I've ever heard. In person, she was so kind and genuine. It was our sincere pleasure to have Mary as part of our special moment. Thank you

Mary is a consummate professional and was a real pleasure to work with. She gave us personal time and focus to help us pick out the best songs for our ceremony. She also accommodated a special request for a Chinese song played during our prelude. I would highly recommend her services and would not hesitate to hire her again in the future. If you looking for a harpist to add an elegant touch to your event, Mary is it!
