    Claire is the best!

    Claire played her beautiful harp at my wedding, and did a phenomenal job! Sounded great, she made everything super easy, great communication, and her song selection was perfect. My husband was also very impressed and happy with her performance - he was glad I pushed for the harp! Thanks so much Claire!

She was beyond professional, a great listener, and so effortlessly amazing that I didn't have one worry about her on the big day. Hire Claire, she's the best!
