Wendy is a Juilliard graduate and a full time professional harpist who has played in a wide variety of settings – from concerts to all types of special occasions throughout CT, the New York area, and beyond. Wendy plays classical as well as popular music, including contemporary songs and covers, love songs, standards and Broadway and Disney favorites, and Celtic, Italian and Jewish and Sacred selections. In addition to her extensive solo work, Wendy plays in duos with violinists, flutists, singers, in trios with cello, and larger groups, too.

She can also bring a small tent for outdoor situations. She has performed for the Queen of Thailand, and other dignitaries, and has played frequently at private residences, business and leading locations throughout the area including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, La Panetiere restaurant, the Indian Harbor Yacht Club in Greenwich, and the John F.

Absolutely wonderful in terms of talent, professionalism and overall accommodation to special requests. Wendy is totally pleasant, a joy to be around and amazingly talented. She put together a trio and it truly was the highlight of our event. I cannot recommend her highly enough. I've used many musicians in the past and Wendy is head and shoulders in a different league than all the rest . She is herself a professor of music and it shows. You can tell by her skill, music and the way she conducts herself . By retaining Wendy you gurantee yourself a headache free high class event.
