We hired April at the last minute because of a cancellation. She was super-professional, friendly, and helpful, and her performance was beautiful! I highly recommend April to anyone looking for elegant music from a true professional.

April was extremely accommodating to our music requests. She was also very honest with me about what music she thought would or wouldn't work on the harp. According to my guests, she played beautifully without a lot of downtime. I chose a lot of non-traditional music for her to play and it worked out very well. She was very prompt with email correspondence as well. Thank you so much, April!
