About
I love to play the harp and love talking about music. Contact me to help plan the music for your next event!

Having just received the 2016 and 2015 1st Place award in KING 5's "Best of Ceremony Music" and the 2015 "Couple's Choice" award with The Knot, Susan is available to play for weddings and corporate events throughout the Puget Sound. With over 25 years of professional experience, she is able to provide a seamless musical backdrop for your special day. Always adding to her repertoire, she plays classical, jazz and Broadway standards and pop music from "oldies" to today's radio hits. With a free consultation, she will help you simplify the task of choosing music for the ceremony or reception. If there isn't printed music for a particular request, Susan can transcribe for the harp just for your occasion. Although her specialty is solo harp, she also collaborates with other musicians to create an ensemble or to accompany a vocalist of your choosing, introducing a cello-harp duo for corporate or wedding bookings.

Originally from Texas, she studied with Julia Hermann Edwards (Southern Methodist University) and Gail Horne Barrington (The University of Texas, Austin). She has played professionally in Texas, North Carolina, Colorado and Washington, D.C. The bulk of her career has been in the Chicago area delighting audiences at venues such as The Drake Hotel, The McCormick Convention Center, and The Four Seasons. Now making the Pacific Northwest her home, she has played at The Fairmont, McCaw Hall, Newcastle Golf Club, The Arctic Club, The Columbia Tower Club and particularly enjoys the lovely evergreen venues around the Sound and in the Cascades. She is happy to play indoor or open air events wherever she can travel with her concert harp (or one of her two smaller harps, if you prefer), including ferries to neighboring ports and gondolas to the summit of Crystal Mountain. She has also played on stage with entertainers such as Frank Sinatra, JR, Michael W Smith, Peabo Bryson, Anita Baker, Jeffrey Osborne and Roberta Flack. Her first Christmas CD will be released in 2016.

Please contact Susan to begin learning more about having harp music for your wedding or private event. There is nothing to compare with the joy that live music will bring to you and your guests on your big day!

Susan was a fantastic find! She and her music added such a professional and special touch to our corporate holiday cocktail hour and dinner. We can't wait to use Susan again in the future and highly recommend her!

I could not be happier with Susan. If the rating stars went up to ten, rather than five, that is what she would get. Her effort and caring and energy made her an integral part of our wedding, rather than just a paid piece. Look no further!

I was very pleased with Susan's presentation. I particularly liked how she responded to people's interest on the harp and the mechanics of harp playing. She did a great job of relating to the young children who were attending. She made them feel welcome with her attention and invitation to participate. Her program was well chosen and appropriate, and her willingness to invite special requests was a bonus. . People left in good spirits and many voiced their appreciation to me. Rosina Vertz.

Susan's music is beautiful! She's so accomplished. We are very happy that we asked her to participate in our daughter's wedding event. She played prior to and then after the ceremony and it couldn't have been more lovely. We selected her for her prompt responsiveness to our initial request, her glowing reviews here on this site, and her web site was informative. She's very accomplished and offerred so much help with music selection. She was genuine in her desire to help my daughter have a wonderful musical experience on her special day.

Susan did a beautiful job at our wedding on somewhat short notice. With no rehearsal and no real contact with our other vendors, she tailored the songs to start and end for our procession at just the right time, and managed to make it all sound natural and non-awkward. She communicates personally with those who hire her, and I never felt like I got a cut-and-paste email, even in the very beginning. Thank you Susan, our wedding music was beautiful!

5 stars. Susan was kind enough to play at our ceremony on very short notice. I asked Susan to select the pieces to play which she successfully choose from her long repertoire. Susan asked me some questions as to our musical taste and interwove a variety of classical to modern day music into a cohesive program. She chose that which I probably would have if I had time and was not grieving the loss of my husband. Many of the relatives and friends commented how beautifully Susan played and that her personality was as soft and warm as her music. Due to the beauty of Susan's performence, our family felt we had given a beautiful last gift to our loved one. Ennis family
