About The Elegant Harp

You're getting married! Congratulations!!! Or having a very special event. The Elegant Harp, String Ensemble, and Jazz Group are musical groups performing in South Florida and the Alexandria Bay, 1000 Islands, New York region for the past 20 years. I love to create beautiful melodies and background music for your ceremony and throughout your wedding day. I have played internationally, and will cater to your desires so you can create an ideal ambiance for your wedding ceremony and cocktail hour, rehearsal dinner, engagement party, bridal shower, or other special event. Virtually any song that you would like to have played I would love to play it for you, whether you want Classical such as the "Canon in D", standards such as "Can't Help Falling in Love" or "Here Comes the Sun", or current pop songs, such as "A Thousand Years", "All of Me", or "Clocks". Guests often come up and say they guessed every song that I played. I keep a balance so that it does not intrude and compete with the conversation but rather complements. It is YOUR day and I want to assist in making it all that you have dreamed it to be.

We have several packages whether you have 2 or 300 guests.

Included to meet your needs:

In-studio consultation to assist you in choosing just the right music for your wedding or special event.

Liability insurance

Amplification for up to 150 guests

Any songs you would like as long as they are playable on the harp

Prince Edward, on national television and radio, and even for the world leaders' wives at the G7 Summit.

    We had a small, intimate wedding and we wanted a touch of elegance. The Elegant Harp was the perfect choice to add that uniquely unforgettable experience that made our wedding so special! Esther, the harpist, played so beautifully! I always wanted a harpist for my ceremony and did not think I could afford it. The Elegant Harp was affordable and made my wedding day dream come true. I would HIGHLY recommend!

    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.
