About

I am a harpist working in the Philadelphia/ New York area. I hold BM and MM degrees, and play a cherrywood-and-gold concert grand pedal harp. I have worked diligently to forge a reputation as one of the pre-eminent event harpists in the tri-state area. I am available for ceremonies, cocktail hours, and partial or full receptions. I'm also able to contract additional musicians (i.e. flautists, singers, violinists) to form a larger ensemble for all or part of your musical needs.

    Daria did a wonderful job playing for our wedding. She was extremely professional and played beautifully. The harp music was the perfect touch to create a beautiful ceremony. Having live music added a touch of elegance to our event.

    Daria was so great and easy to work with. I only gave her songs I wanted for the ceremony and let her play whatever she thought was appropriate for cocktail hour. Daria totally exceeded my expectations. She was there on-time (actually before she needed to be) and played beautifully. She really made the ceremony and cocktail hour feel so elegant!

    We were both very, very pleased with your extensive musical skills, professionalism, and friendly demeanor. The harp added the perfect touch to our wedding, and our guests are still commenting on how beautiful everything was. We will not hesitate to give your name to anyone we may encounter who needs a harpist! Thanks again, and best of luck with everything. :)

Discount
I'm offering a discounted bundle of $375 when you book music for both your ceremony and cocktail hour (they must be at the same venue to take advantage of this offer). This provides you with music for your cocktails for what amounts to $50, which is a great savings over what you'd have to pay a separate musician to come for that hour.

Daria is an excellent musician. She provided pre-wedding and wedding ceremony music for a wedding I coordinated on 8/1/2009. Her presentation as well as her professionalism were outstanding. I look forward to our next function together.
