I don't know where to begin to write about Ester Underhay and her amazing harp skills. The love she has for her art you can feel through her music, and hear in your heart. She preforms all of the classics, as well as plays music you'd hear on today's music stations. She is always dressed elegantly, with a warm smile that reaches her eyes. Ester is one of a kind.
Esther is an awesome Harpist and an elegant, sophisticated individual. We've worked with her (and her husband, Pastor Paul Underhay) often through the years and they are consummate professionals. If you want class, elegance, grace, and most of all talent playing beautiful music, choose Esther.
Esther does a wonderful job providing the perfect background music for your ceremony! Always the consummate professional!
