Amy Kortus played for the rehearsal dinner for our son's wedding. She provided beautiful background music in our home during cocktails and then changed locations to an adjacent banquet tent to play during the meal. Her performance was wonderful and very much appreciated by our 50+ guests. Moreover, she is a true professional who was entirely unflappable in the face of several unexpected inconveniences during the evening! She arrives with all necessary equipment and needs only to be shown where to set up. Contracting was easily accomplished via email. We unreservedly provide our recommendation and will enjoy having her again at another occasion.Sent on 10/28/2013

Amy did not perform ceremony music but rather provided music for our cocktail hour. Hiring a harpist for our wedding day was one of my last minute decisions but certainly one of the best. I've heard and continue to hear nothing but wonderful things on her appearance professionalism and beautiful music from my guests, which is wonderful, as I did not have the chance to see her during this time, or at all on our wedding day! Not a thing to worry about! Thanks Amy!Sent on 11/02/2013

We were inexperienced in hiring a harpist. Amy took really great care of us. Her recommendations were perfect and she was able to meet any requests we did have. She played beautifully and was reasonably priced. Everyone was very impressed with how elegant she made our event.Sent on 02/04/2013
