One harp at a wedding is beautiful, but two harps at a wedding are spectacular! There is definitely a visual and auditory “wow” factor with the harp, and even more so when there is more than one!
Katerina chose a harp duet to play for her cocktail hour at the Westin River North in downtown Chicago. We played for the first two hours of the reception, as guests enjoyed drinks, hors d’oeuvres, and the beautiful sights along the Chicago River.
The bride’s music requests included a few classical selections, but were mostly from the pop and rock genres – with lots of Disney and movie songs! Among others, we played:
- A Time for Us from Romeo and Juliet
- Can’t Help Falling in Love
- Eyes on Me from Final Fantasy VIII
- Marry You by Bruno Mars
- Nothing Else Matters by Metallica
- A Thousand Years from Twilight
Quite the playlist – and not things you expect to hear on the harp! Guests definitely loved the selections we played, as well as the surprise of hearing contemporary music on classic instruments.
I work with many other professional musicians, and can provide several instrument groupings for weddings and parties. Along with this lovely two-harp duet, you can also book a harp & violin, harp & flute, harp & cello, harp & piano, harp & vocalist, or harp & steel drums duo. Trios, quartets, and larger ensembles are also available.
