We hired a wonderfully talented harpist named Chanah Ambuter, and were thrilled with her exceptional performance at our daughter's bridal shower!!! Everyone keeps talking about how beautiful her music was, and that they were impressed with her!! I've had many people ask for her name so they can hire her too. Even the owner of the event's location at Steven Lelli's On The Green in Farmington Hills Michigan was asking for her name because he was so impressed with her musical performance! The process of using GigMasters allowed me to find Chanah and provided a communication vehicle by which I could ask her questions before making our decision to hire her.
I'm honored and delighted to provide a blissful musical experience tailored to you, with music that perfectly encapsulates and emphasizes your vision. Bring the brilliance, elegance, and majesty of the Harp to your day!
My primary event harp, newly purchased in November 2017, is made by the prestigious Italian manufacter "Salvi." Their luxurious, luminous sound and masterful craftmanship led to a custom commission from the Royal British Family to make the official harp for The Prince of Wales. My own Salvi instrument is a lovely Gilded Iris (Limited Edition) in rosewood and 24-carat gold, and a luxurious, vibrant, world-class sound.
I have worked to cultivate a full, romantic sound to entrance and dazzle my audience. In the relatively recent past, music for the harp has bloomed into an diverse and flamboyant range of styles, and I love to explore the musical possibilities they present! My repertoire includes Classical, Celtic, Modern pop, Golden Oldies, Broadway, Jazz, Disney/Soundtrack, Holiday & Religious, and Therapy/Garden-inspiration music.
Some of the events I've played for include:
-Parties (background music)
-Church services, funerals, memorials
-Corporate Functions, school presentations
-Chamber performances (or collaborations with other musicians/artists)
-Benefit concerts & fundraisers
-Ensemble (orchestra, musicals, opera)
-Accompanying (choirs, duets, etc).
I first heard the harp as an impressionable toddler and have been in love with it ever since! Since starting harp lessons at the age of 11, I've continued to follow that passion throughout my studies at The Juilliard School: Precollege Division, The University of Michigan, and the University of Illinois, culminating with my Master of Music in Harp Performance and Literature degree. I perform frequently in the greater Metro-Detroit area, and past clients have included the DIA, the Metro-Detroit Chorale, the University of Michigan, and more!
