I just wanted you to know what a pleasure it was to hear you play while I was packing up my harp. It is so easy to forget what how harp music is so relaxing and calming when we're the ones behind the instrument. It was simply delightful to hear you and wish I could have stayed longer. Thought I'd send you this little note to tell you how much I enjoyed it and how beautiful your playing was.
- Nella Rigell (Atlanta harpist)
Just wanted to thank you for the beautiful music today. You are so amazing and you really made all the difference in the world! Everyone was raving about your performance. Thanks so very much for all of your help, especially since I didn't have a wedding coordinator. I really appreciate it. If you ever need a reference for your business, I would be happy to do it.
