Enhance harp performances with additional instruments to create musical layers of depth and vibrant texture. Ensemble options can accommodate every musical palette and budget. A trio is comprised of the harp, cello, and melody instrument (violin or flute) and produces a rich, full-bodied sound. For a lighter alternative, select a duo by pairing the violin, cello or flute with the harp.
Musical entertainment provides the finishing touch for outdoor settings. Due to the fragile nature of the instruments, please adhere to the following considerations when planning an outside event. Musicians must be set up on a dry, level surface that is shaded and out of direct sunlight. Musicians cannot perform in conditions of impending rain, strong wind and temperatures below 65 degrees or higher than 85 degrees. Please note that outdoor events will be charged a nonrefundable $50 fee.
A battery operated amplifier will be provided (at no additional cost) to ensure that the harp can be heard and enjoyed by your guests.
