About Modern Harpist

With over 12 years of experience as a harpist, Lauren Baker strives for elegance and sophistication in a contemporary setting. Make any wedding a fairy tale and every corporate event shine with Lauren there to help! The music of the harp provides a timeless touch to any occasion. With a selection that spans from Frank Sinatra to Johann Pachelbel, there is always music to cater to your tastes.

As a graduate of Berklee College of Music, Lauren is well versed in the fast-paced and ever-changing performing and recording arts industry. Finding a place for the harp in today's modern society has been a determined goal. She has recorded with Grammy Award-winning producer Richard Evans and had the honor of working under the direction of Academy Award-winning composer Howard Shore while performing his film score for Naked Lunch. She has shared the stage with recording artists such as Steve Winwood and Earth, Wind, and Fire.

With experience beyond her years, Lauren has already gained notoriety as a soloist and as a part of countless ensembles and orchestras. She has performed in such varied venues as the Celtic Festival in Grant Park, Chicago to the Esterházy Palace in Eisenstadt, Austria, the hall best known for its residency of composer Joseph Haydn. Additionally, she has appeared on several of the Boston area stages, including the Berklee Performance Center and Boston University's Agganis Arena.

Lauren eagerly explores every opportunity to showcase the harp in any genre. She has assembled a rigorous repertoire from the standards of Miles Davis to the intense chromaticism of Debussy and Salzedo. Whether it be a classical recital at the Boston Conservatory or playing with a jazz trio for an intimate performance, her musicianship knows no bounds.

Lauren's extensive knowledge of all types of music in any setting proves her to be a standout in the New England area. She currently resides in the Boston area and regularly performs with regional orchestras, churches, theater groups, and performing arts societies.

    We decided to go with a harpist for our Summer wedding ceremony as it seemed like a unique touch that we hadn't seen in the past. After a bit of research online, I came across Lauren's website. It was very easy to get in touch with her and every email I sent to her was responded to promptly. I had a few unique requests for the ceremony, and to my delight Lauren was able to play the songs for us. Her skill at the harp is masterful to say the least. Everyone was so impressed by how beautiful her performance was, and it truly gave our outdoor ceremony that unforgettable quality. We are so happy to have chosen Lauren to play for us, and we hope to have the pleasure of hearing her play again in the future.

    Lauren was fabulous. We were looking for a contemporary harpist and found exactly what we were looking for. She had an amazing repertoire and was open to learning anything at our request. She had great suggestions and we could not be more pleased with her service.
