Wedding ReceptionReviewed on July 9, 2022From Chantilly, VA

Review by Stuart A.

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on September 17, 2016From King George, VA

The artist is superb. I told her the wrong time but she showed up early and with little or no warmup with the string, she performed flawlessly! I will definitely have her again and reocmmend her to everyone.

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on June 9, 2018From Washington, DC

Monika's beautiful music and instrument added so much to my friends wedding and cocktail hour. Everyone was delighted by the harp and the music selections. The groom had a special request and Monika was able to accommodate and exceed his expectations. It was easy to work with her and I would definitely recommend Monika's services.
