The How, Why, When and Wow of having a Harpist!
What to consider when planning your event in Victoria BC
  The Wow Factor!

Of all the musical instruments, the harp has the greatest "wow factor" for your guests. The harp speaks a unique, captivating language. The care, attention and professionalism that Alison puts into her physical presentation, lighting and musical performance enhances the harp's visual effect to the point where it's just simply "Wow". This rubs off on your whole event and boosts your guest's overall positive impression.

  Where to use the harp?

When planning your event or conference, Alison's harpistry is easy to include. Whether indoors or outdoors, for small or large groups, corporate receptions, garden parties or wedding ceremonies

  How to use the harp?

Alison's harp music can be either for background ambience or as a foreground feature act. When using carefully controlled and discrete amplification, Alison's punchy rhythms and tuneful compositions have more sonic presence than a string quartet! Her music can gently disperse into a room drifting in and out of conversation.

Professional Harpsound Audio amplification is available with her attendant sound technician. Alison's set-up is totally self-contained with a battery powered option available.

To Alison,
The Rainbow Harpist

You have left the rainbow,
The sun, the moon,
the stars,
so much behind you.

Until you had gone
I did not know that you had left
the rivers, the forests,
the silences.
I did not know
I should always remember
your music in my heart.

Viva Alison,
Mucho gracias…
Peter Jacobson, Poet,
Dunedin, New Zealand

"Please accept our sincere appreciation for your performance during the pre-banquet social and during the banquet. The ambience of your music definitely made the evening a great success."
Ray Saxon, Co-Chair, 78th Annual Conference,
Purchasing Management Association of Canada

"The music you played for our guests and us as everyone arrived at the cocktail reception was elegant and classy. And you made it simple for us, Alison. You've obviously had lots of experience, as you coordinated the timing of everything before, during and after the reception and ceremony, seamlessly and without rehearsal."
