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 Vasey is a wonderful harpist. I photographed a wedding ceremony two years ago in which see performed. She is a graceful musician of the highest caliber.
