Congratulations on your wedding! I am a harpist- I received a Master of Music from The Juilliard School and a Doctorate in Music from the U of A. You can see my webpage for details and to hear some of my music- www.ChristineVivona.com. I play Harp II in the Tucson Symphony and play at the Westward Look. Hacienda del Sol and Canyon Ranch on a monthly basis and at the other resorts in town for special events.
What is included in a wedding package is a consultation to select the music for your ceremony. You choose the Processional Marches for the Seating of the Parents, the Bridal Party, Bride and Groom, anything during the ceremony (unity candle etc.) and the Recessional Marches for the Wedding Party and the guests. I then put these selections on a CD for you to have as a keepsake.
The day of the wedding, I am there 45 minutes before the start time and play for your guests as they arrive. This is usually 30 minutes of prelude music. I play all the selections for the ceremony and 10 minutes afterwards while the guests leave the site and head to the reception. This is $300 -$100 deposit and a signed contract holds the date and the balance of $200 is due the week before the ceremony.
Reception music –usually upbeat light jazz or classical selections- is $100/hour if the reception is at the same facility as the ceremony. This fee includes amplification if needed.
Happy planning-I look forward to hearing from you.

Christine is wonderful! She played songs both before and during the wedding, including songs for entrances, exits, and our sand ceremony. She even included a CD of the songs that we requested for the wedding! She is very professional and works out all of the details on her own (where to set up, equipment needed for the venue, schedule for the day, etc.) which meant that we had nothing to worry about for our big day. She was also very accommodating with our song requests- we wanted one for our sand ceremony that she hadn't played before, and she was more than happy to get a copy for us. I would definitely recommend her, and her prices are similar to other harpists we found in the area. Well worth it, and our guests loved her as well!

Beautiful music on our wedding day! Christine provided us with a harp and also brought a violin player with her by our request. Our wedding was unique and wouldn’t have been the same without her music. We would use her again in a heartbeat.

Our wedding date isn’t scheduled yet, but we met Christine at a bridal fair and she was wonderful! I’ve been recommending her to everyone who’ll listen to me. Her ratings are perfect and I wanted to contribute giving her 5 stars in everything. I’m sure she’ll be the star at our wedding and wouldn’t like to be selfish, please everyone hire her already!
Christina's harp music adds a new dimension to the weddings and events we've worked together at. She works so well with the couples and plays music that people continue to talk about. We always love when she's at an event we are filming.
What is more lovely than a Harp? Christine and her harp will bring lovely music to any occasion.
Christine is an amazing & talented harpist. I have worked with her on several occasions & she does not disappoint! I am proud to recommend her to my clients.
