About Harpist-Miriam Shilling

Experienced Harpist for All Your Special Events

An experienced event harpist, I understand the importance of your special day.  I will work with you to provide music of your choosing for your ceremony, cocktail hour, or reception.   I also play harp for parties, showers, and memorials, as well as for theatre and in restaurants. 

I always welcome interfaith and LGBT weddings, renewal ceremonies, and last-minute events.

My repertoire contains a wide range of music, including Standards, Showtunes, and Movie music; Traditional, Classical, Meditative, and Religious; Beatles, Irish, and Disney; songs from the 60’s, 70's, 80’s, and 90's; and newer music, as well. 

******************************

CONSIDER MY CELTIC HARP, WHICH IS SMALLER AND COSTS A BIT LESS TO HIRE,  IS VERY PORTABLE, AND IS A BEAUTIFUL INSTRUMENT.

IT IS THE PERFECT HARP FOR BACKYARD & OUTDOOR EVENTS, SMALLER VENUES,
AND OUT-OF-THE WAY LOCATIONS.

PLEASE VIEW VIDEOS OF ME PLAYING BOTH HARPS ON MY YOUTUBE CHANNEL.

Should you desire harp plus another instrument I do not play (for instance, violin, flute, 'cello, or voice), I will handle all the paperwork for you, booking my own experienced musicians.  Please inquire as to possible combos.  

I have been playing harp for 38 years, beginning private lessons in February of 1978, and continuing on at the Crane School of Music at SUNY Potsdam.  I played for two years with NYSSMA's All-State Orchestra in the Catskills and Buffalo, as well as one year in the All-Eastern symphonic band in Baltimore.  I have traveled with the Long Island Youth Orchestra to play in Southeast Asia and Scandinavia, and at the World's Fair in Vancouver.
