Beautiful musicians add a whole new level of elegance
We are so happy to have Harpist and Cellist Naomi and Heather play at our wedding. Their music was absolutely heavenly and it doesn’t hurt that they even wore stunning dresses that matched our theme. We would highly recommend them for anyone trying to add some elegance to their wedding.Sent on 11/06/2018

We had Rachel play the harp for our wedding last month and she was absolutely incredible. She played beautifully and we were so impressed by her wonderful timing with everything. The music choices were great and this vendor was so easy to work with. It was such a nice touch to have a harp at our wedding and we were so happy to have chosen this music vendor. Thank you guys!Sent on 11/11/2018

Team of Chantal Dube, The Harpist
Harpist ~ I Studied with Toronto harpist, Chantal Dubé, the Canadian Opera company orchestras principle harpist, Sarah Davidson, and Julie Umbrico at the Royal Conservatory. In 2015 I was a gold medalist with the Royal Conservatory for my grade six-grade practical exam. In 2016 I received another gold medal for my grade eight practical exam and attained first class honors in my grade eight practical exam. I have also performed with the JSO (Jubilance Singers and Orchestra) and recorded an album with them which was released in 2016. My twin sister Heather and I enjoy offering elegant romantic performances as a harp and cello duo! We offer couples a dynamic and unforgettable experience. When performing we often perform in elegant matching dresses and I play on my 46 string semi-grand pedal harp. When I am not performing as a harpist, I enjoy studying Art/Art history.
Harpist ~ I began harp lessons with harpist Chantal Dubé in 2003. Since the beginning of my musical career, I have enjoyed performing and sharing my music with my family and the community. In my early years, I would perform with my school orchestra before graduating into high school. In 2008 I completed my Royal Conservatory grade eight practical exam. I have been continuing in my studies with Suzanne Thomas, former Principal harpist (for 52 years) in the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra. I am currently performing for Chantal Dube on my 47 string grand pedal harp at various events throughout the GTA.
Cellist ~ I have a musical background in piano, flute and have been playing cello since 2012, studying with Peter Cosby, a cellist in Annex string quartet, since 2013. In 2015, I traveled as a cellist to Armenia with the JSO (Jubilance Singers and Orchestra). I have also been apart of the JSO and recorded an album in 2016. My twin twin sister Naomi and I enjoy offering elegant romantic performances as a harp and cello duo! When I am not playing my cello I enjoy painting the works of artists including Ingres and Botticelli.
