    Talented harpist!

    For a backyard family event (25th wedding anniversary), Dr. Vanessa Sheldon played the harp during our cocktail hour and was absolutely superb. Very talented and professional, she set the perfect tone for an elegant evening. I deeply appreciated that she also provided a list of songs in advance to customize her performance, and was also willing to take requests or learn new songs in advance. Great to work with and smooth communication!
