Dear Tracey, Dr and Mrs Yonnet were very happy with Amanda. They found her to be exceptionally talented and it made the evening extra special. All your team were professional and very helpful. The booking process was very easy and Amanda the Harpist exceeded all expectations.

With many years of experience, Amanda is able to perform the right music to enhance the atmosphere at any wedding and may perform music for the guests as they arrive at the church, during the signing of the register, for optional marches as an alternative to the organ, and for the bride, groom and guests to leave the room. She is also able to perform at the drinks reception until the wedding party moves into the wedding breakfast, and also for the wedding breakfast itself.
Furthermore, if you are looking to give you corporate event or function something a little different, maybe a harp on a raised platform in the middle of a room whilst the guests mingle around for their drinks reception whilst listening to some light jazz. Or perharps with her harp trio, creating a chill out jazz vibe, changing the repertoire to suit the mood and type of client- from large corporate dinners to intimate parties...
Also, if your event has a theme, please let Amanda know, as she will tailor make the music and even wear an appropriate outfit to tie in!
Amanda is also able to provide a vocalist if required and dependent upon availability.
