So Grateful for Sharon's Talent!

I can't speak highly enough about Sharon Planer's talent and professionalism! Sharon provided our mocktail hour music for our wedding reception at Midland Hills Country Club and we couldn't have been happier. She was extremely versatile and adaptable to the room and provided a great balance of our requests along with insightful choices to fit the event.

I was familiar with Sharon's playing before we booked her, having heard her in other private event performances as well. She is a delightful musical addition to every event I've encountered her!
