About The Solo Harp of Susan W. Haas

Seattle wedding harpist Susan Haas is available to play for weddings and special events throughout the Puget Sound. With over 25 years of professional experience playing the solo harp, she is able to provide a seamless musical backdrop for your special day. Always adding to her repertoire, she plays classical, jazz and broadway standards and pop music from "oldies" to today's hits. With a free consultation, she will help you simplify the task of choosing music for your ceremony or reception. If there isn't printed music for a particular request, Susan can transcribe for the harp just for your occasion. Although her specialty is solo harp, she also collaborates with other musicians to create a duo/ trio/quartet or to accompany a vocalist of your choosing. Check out the Cello-Harp Duo featured on her website.

Originally from Texas, she studied with Julia Hermann Edwards (Southern Methodist University) and Gail Horne Barrington (The University of Texas, Austin). She has played professionally in Texas, North Carolina, Colorado and Washington, D.C. The bulk of her career has been in the Chicago area delighting audiences at venues such as The Drake Hotel, The McCormick Convention Center, and The Four Seasons. Now making the Pacific Northwest her home, she particularly enjoys the lovely evergreen venues around the Sound and in the Cascades and has performed at venues such as The Arctic Ballroom, The Fairmont, Bell Harbour Convention Center, McCaw Hall, Sodo Park/Herban Feast, De Lille Cellars and many more. She is happy to play indoor or open air events wherever she can travel with her concert harp (or one of her two smaller harps, if you prefer), including ferries to neighboring ports and gondolas to the summit of Crystal Mountain.

She also performs with the occasional stage orchestra for performers such as Frank Sinatra, Jr and Michael W Smith when they have a concert in town. Other artists she has shared the stage with are Roberta Flack, Peabo Bryson, Jeffrey Osborne and Anita Baker.

Please contact Susan to begin learning more about having harp music for your wedding or event. There is nothing to compare with the joy that live harp music will bring to you and your guests on your big day!

    Susan Haas - Solo Harpist

    October 12, 2019


    Let me tell you a fun story… My wife’s favorite instrument is the harp and I decided to surprise her with solo harp music during the dinner portion of our wedding reception at the Edgewater Hotel in Seattle, WA on October 12, 2019. I could not have asked for a more willing and talented partner in this escapade than Susan Haas. Since the Edgewater ballroom was the site of both our wedding ceremony and the dinner reception – with an intervening cocktail hour on the adjoining terrace – Susan arranged to secretly sneak into the ballroom for her setup and preparation during the cocktail hour. No one knew!

    Much to my wife’s chagrin of not wanting to make a grand entrance, I was able to convince her we should enter the ballroom last, after all guests were seated for dinner. When we did so, we made our way to the dance floor where my wife was greeted by Susan and her beautiful harp and one of my wife’s favorite songs. It was a total surprise and a perfect moment, among many that day!

    Susan’s stand-alone sound system and her extensive playlist made for a phenomenal evening and we could not be more grateful for her flawless performance. We collaborated on every song choice to ensure my wife heard one favorite after another, ending with an incredible medley from her favorite movie: The Sound of Music.

    Whatever your needs, I promise you will be glad you selected Susan for her gracious and helpful personality, and especially her music.

    Thank you Susan for an incredible memory!

My particular experience with Susan had challenges of transportation and rain and she handled it and performed beautifully. It was the first time I've ever seen the harp played in the middle of the forest, and it was done exceptionally well.
