Harpist for Christmas 2012

Is Christmas event planning your role this year? I would be delighted to be the harpist at your Christmas event!
Christmas music on the harp is great fun to play and receives a lovely response from guests- from traditional Carols, Christmas tunes with a jazzy twist to Pop Xmas classics. Every year I smile when I get out the Christmas music and begin to work on Christmas harp arrangements new and old – be it to play at community events, Christmas fairs, drinks receptions, themed Weddings, Music in Hospitals concerts and of course at home around the Christmas tree!
2012 bookings so far for the festive month include performing as “HarpSing“, Weddings, Harp concerts for Music in Hospitals, Orchestral music, Harp music at various Christmas fairs and music for corporate event drinks reception.
If you have a special Christmas occasion you are planning for and would like live harp music please do not hesitate to contact me!
