Winifred Garrett is a consummate professional, a profound talent, and a radiant personality. Our guests were delighted and mesmerized. Easing into the first hour of the party, her playing was subtle and not at all intrusive as guests were renewing old friendships and beginning new. She broke easily as the group was formally welcomed and the meal begun. The focus of the group then naturally turned toward Ms. Garrett, and she, very appropriately, moved into a more "center stage" performance. One guest, an excellent singer, performed a number from The Fantasticks, with Ms. Garrett accompanying. If Winifred isn't "perfect," she's as close as you're gonna get. Hire her!!

A superb harpist! Ms. Garrett’s performance at our daughter’s wedding was absolutely beautiful. She exuded the highest level of professionalism (including being punctual, organized, and appropriately presented). From her expert suggestions for ceremony music, to her flawless execution on wedding day, she was top notch! She answered our questions in a calm, professional manner and was flexible when we needed to modify the selections a week before the wedding. I especially appreciated her prompt response to emails and phone calls. I would happily entrust any occasion requiring a professional harpist to Ms. Garrett. We offer my highest recommendation!

Winifred is a marvelously talented harpist. She went beyond the cause to make herself available for my daughter's wedding and she played magnificently. She set the mood with harmonious tones before, during and after the wedding. We all were truly in awe. Thanks for sharing your gift of music with us.

I could not ask for anyone to be more accommodating than Winifred. It was always a pleasure talking with her, and she always made me feel as if she was as excited about my wedding as I was!!!

Winifred was such a pleasure to have as a harpist for our beach wedding. Her music is beautiful and she graciously offered to learn a new song for us (which was beautiful and made me cry!). She is very easy to work with and has a lovely sunny disposition. I highly recommend Winifred she is the best!!! Thank you again for everything!

Winifred played beautifully at my wedding and was fully accommodating to our needs. I did not have to worry about anything when it came to the music, as Winfred took care of all of it. Me and my husband both recommend her for anyone's special event.
