Hristina was pleasant to work with. She played so beautifully for the fully allocated slot I had booked her for. She went the extra mile to ask me what were my favourite songs and made sure she learned and played it during my proposal. My fiancé loved every song she played. Would recommend her to anyone looking for a harpist. She’s a professional.

We hired Hristina for a recording session and she was very punctual and professional. She had prepared everything she needed in advance and it was super easy to complete the recording without wasting any of the recording studios booking time. She was super friendly and suggested some different approaches to make the most of the day. Highly recommend.

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Hristina has been fascinated with the harp since she was 9 years old. At the age of 11, she started learning the harp as a prime instrument at the National School of Music in Sofia, Bulgaria, where she graduates in 2015 before she moves to London to pursue her music career. While pursuing her further education she takes part in many different projects.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

• Shangri-La The Shard, London

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

I’ve mainly been influenced by my teachers and fellow colleagues.

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

One of the most high-profile events that Hristina has performed at is a private reception in the Houses of the Bulgarian Presidency where she performed in front of the President of Bulgaria - Georgy Parvanov, EU Diplomats and ambassadors.

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

I am always happy to try and be flexible and help ensure that your event runs as smoothly as possible. If your timings change in time before your event, just get in touch at least 4 working days before the event.

How much time do you need to set up?

My usual set up time is between 1 to 1.5 hours, as the instrument will need time to settle with the atmosphere of the space and I will need time to tune the harp.

Is the transport of your harp included in your quote?

Absolutely - I include all travel costs, including the transportation of my instrument, in my quotes.

Do you need any equipment provided to play outdoors?

Not at all - my instrument is played acoustically so I don't need additional equipment. If it is raining I will need full cover or to perform indoors, to prevent water damage. I would also not be able to perform outdoors if there is a drastic temperature changes as they can cause irreversible damage on my instrument.

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

My set list is crafted from many performances and learning what works best to ensure guests have a good time. However, I'm more than happy to discuss any changes and find what works best for your event.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If a song is not included in the setlist, there is still a chance that I already know it. If there is a special song you'd like me to learn I am happy to do that, I have included 1 free add-on song in each quote, each additional one has a charge of £25 to take into account rehearsal times etc.
