I spend most of my summers playing the harp for weddings, so different types of events are an enjoyable change of pace! This party was for two women who had been friends since childhood, and they were celebrating their 90th birthdays together.
Their families and friends gathered for a luncheon at a home in Burr Ridge, Illinois, and listened to a variety of harp music. Most of the songs I played were popular pieces from the 1930’s through the 1950’s, but I also added in some more contemporary ones for the grandkids and a few classical pieces as well. Even the family dog sat by my feet to listen!
When you are planning your next family get-together, consider adding live harp music to make it an even more memorable event. Visit my website, Chicago Harpist, for details!
