Monika was a fantastic find for our wedding. She was very involved in our music selection process and provided great suggestions about certain pieces/composers that would be best for each section of the ceremony. She also went out of her way to learn several new and arguably obscure songs that we requested for the cocktail hour. Choosing Monika to play to for our wedding gave the whole night a classy, fun, and memorable atmosphere. My wife and I highly recommend Monika for any event!

I am pleased to say I have had Monika perform at the celebration of all three of our children's weddings. She played at our daughter's cocktail hour before her wedding reception, as well as our son's rehearsal dinners. Monika is talented, accommodating, dependable, and very professional! She plays beautifully, yet allowed conversations among the guests not to be interfered with. She listened to my requests for what type of music and looked lovely while performing. I highly recommend this lovely young woman. Joan Fielding

Professional Network & Endorsements

Monika played for the ceremony at a wedding we photographed recently. She was very prfoessional and played beautifuly! I would definitely recommend her.

I have performed many ceremonies where Monika has provided her beautiful music. Since my couples are interested in personalized ceremonies I've heard her play everything from contemporary to classical. She is always skilled and polished and very aware of what's going on around her. If a little extemporaneous music is needed she easily and beautifully provides it.

Monika adds such elegance and we love having her play during wedding ceremonies and adding light background music to cocktail/hors d'oeuvre periods. There's just something special about having a harp and Monika's great at it!
