Claire with harpFormal occasions

Claire has delighted guests at numerous functions with her varied programme of pieces. Her repertoire is wide-ranging, encompassing light classical pieces, well-known songs, romantic music, songs from the shows and pop ballads. She has arranged many of these melodies herself specifically for the harp and also improvises around her melodies while she plays.

Claire plays for formal dinners, wedding breakfasts, anniversaries, special receptions, drinks parties, business functions and charity evenings. She has taken her harp to top hotels, castles and stately homes.

Claire with harpClaire considers the harp a wonderful instrument for background playing. Apart from being beautiful to look at, the sound is stunning. It is similar to a piano but more magical. The notes of a harp are clearly audible yet also subtle - relaxing yet thrilling. Sensitive amplification of the harp ensures that it can be heard by everyone at large gatherings and in spacious venues without being overbearing.


Claire will play two hours of background music for your dinner or formal event for a starting price of £185. Please contact her to discuss booking requirements.

Claire also offers a special price for music for funerals or for charity events in her local area. Please contact her to discuss.
