Couldn't recommend Madeline enough. She played at our wedding in August 2022 and for days after our guests couldn't stop commenting on how beautifully she played and how much they loved the harp music. One of the best wedding decisions we made!

Madeline is an incredibly talented musician and it was a joy to have her play the harp for our wedding back in June 2022. We were worried that we were asking a lot from her as we had her play in three different locations, however she was more than happy to accommodate this. The harp is a wonderful instrument and made our outdoor ceremony so much more romantic. Madeline met with us beforehand and even learned a new song of our choosing so that our ceremony could be perfect. All the guests really enjoyed hearing the harp, commenting on how different it was and how well it was played. I would recommend Madeline to anyone who was looking to have live music at their event.
