About Us

An experienced event harpist (and pianist), I understand the importance of your special day.  I will work with you to provide music of your choosing for your ceremony, cocktail hour, or reception.   I also play harp for parties, showers, and memorials, as well as for theatre and in restaurants. 

I also welcome interfaith and LGBT weddings, renewal ceremonies, and last-minute events.

My repertoire contains a wide range of music, including Standards, Showtunes, and Movie music; Traditional, Classical, Meditative, and Religious; Beatles, Irish, and Disney; songs from the 60’s, 70's, and 80’s; and newer music, as well. 

*NEW  HARP & PIANO VIDEOS POSTED ON MY HARPIST-MIRIAM SHILLING FACEBOOK PAGE.  PLEASE VISIT TO LISTEN.  THANKS!*

Booking events on Long Island and the Tri-State area.  I am also willing to travel elsewhere; please inquire. 

Covering events in catering halls, country clubs, vineyards, gardens, public spaces, private homes, and outdoors.

Events include:  Weddings (ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception); Parties (anniversaries, birthdays, tea parties, etc.); Showers (bridal and baby); Fundraisers; Memorials and Funerary Situations; Political Functions; Restaurants; Theatre; and Orchestras.

____________

Do you want a harpist for your ceremony and a pianist for your cocktail hour (or the other way around), but can only afford one musician?  I can do that!  Your hall provides the piano and I'll bring my harp.  Varied programs on both instruments.  Please inquire.

____________

>> I play harp at Bridal Shows throughout the year.  The first show of 2015 is on Wednesday, January 28 at the Clarion Hotel in Ronkonkoma.  Doors open at 6:30 pm.  All shows are free to attend.  For more information, please visit www.longislandbridalexpo.com <<

____________

Should you desire harp plus another instrument I do not play (for instance, violin, flute, 'cello, or voice), I will handle all the paperwork for you, booking my own experienced musicians.  Please inquire as to possible combos.  

I have been playing harp for 36 years, beginning private lessons in February of 1978, and continuing on at the Crane School of Music at SUNY Potsdam.  I played for two years with NYSSMA's All-State Orchestra in the Catskills and Buffalo, as well as one year in the All-Eastern symphonic band in Baltimore.  I have traveled with the Long Island Youth Orchestra to play in Southeast Asia and Scandinavia, and at the World's Fair in Vancouver.

Miriam played at our wedding and was enthusiastically received by all. Not only did she play beautifully, she got into the swing of the party by wearing a hat that matched the wedding theme. Consummate professional. We recommend her for any occasion!
