Harpist Claudine Cappelle-Harig
 The harp is an elegant and versatile choice for your wedding day music. It adds a touch of class to any church ceremony or dinner hour. The harp is also perfect for any garden or non-church ceremony, where pianos and organs are not available. The harp is one of the few instruments that is transportable and can be performed as a solo instrument.In addition, I have a flautist, violinist, trumpeter, cellist, and vocalists that I work with in a variety of combinations to tailor the music to the couple’s specific taste.I also work with any musician/vocalist of the bride’s choice and am able to play almost any requested song. The harp will treat your guests to a unique and celestial sound that will be forever memorable.
