    Fantastic, professional, talented harpist

    We wanted a harpist for an early October wedding ceremony. It turns out that harpists are (understandably) somewhat concerned about playing outdoors in the middle of fall. Of the over half-dozen harpists we contacted, Chantal Dube was by far the most responsive and willing to work with our venue. She was also very helpful in making suggestions regarding song choices and helping us with the songs we wanted. On the day itself, Naomi Jackson arrived with plenty of time to set up. She did a fantastic job playing in the lead-up to the ceremony and during the ceremony itself. The music really helped make our day a little bit more special. I would highly recommend Chantal Dube and her team to anyone looking for harp music for their wedding!

    We recommended booking this service early because they book up quickly, especially if your event is in September. A year prior to our event date, Chantal was already booked, but Rachel was free and we were beyond satisfied by her performance at our Wedding. We could tell she had a great teacher! Rachel was professional, very talented, provided a large repertoire of music, and personable. We had many positive comments from our guests and we couldn't agree more. We would definitely recommend Rachel (or Chantal)!

    Thanks so much for your kind words about Rachel and I. She very much enjoyed performing for you both. We are very thankful you took the time to give us such a great review, that is the best compliment to us! All the best to you both!

    Originally I booked Heather & Naomi for a 2 hour session, then needed to decrease to 1h performance due to change in event. Chantal was very accommodating and professional handling my date & request alteration.
    Both ladies were very charming and lovely. The music was very much appreciated by our guests. I would certainly recommended them or book another event with them again.

    Perfect Fit

    Having Chantal play for our ceremony was the perfect touch. I got so many compliments on having her there. I picked out some keys songs that I wanted played and said the rest was up to her and she played wonderful. I would highly recommend her for any event where you want a touch of romance or elegance. Especially for a wedding :)

    Elegant, professional, organized and affordable

    After spending countless months reaching out to individual musicians Chantal dube was recommended to me by a friend that had seen one of her musicians perform. She had our wedding date available and was one of the more affordable options for us so we were thrilled. Naomi Jackson was our harpist for our ceremony at kortright and she was dressed elegantly and incredibly professional. The music selection is already extensive offering plenty of top 40 songs but willing to learn a new one if your event is far enough away and she did in fact learn a new song for me! I was very impressed with my first impression including website and quick email responses. I would recommend!

    This is what heaven sounds like!

    We had harp and cello at our outdoor wedding ceremony and it was absolutely beautiful. I wish I had asked the videographer to record their pre-ceremony set so I could have experienced it. We had 'A Thousand years" featured during the walk down the aisle, and "All I Ask of You" from the Phantom of the Opera played during the signing of the wedding registry. After I signed, I closed my eyes so I could really enjoy the moment listening. The duo could not meet us in person before the Wedding, but they do have videos posted on the Chantal Dubé youtube channel. After checking those out we felt confident in our decision and were excited to book them for our event. I would highly recommend Chantal Dubé's musicians for your live music needs.

    Thanks so much for your great review and your confidence in our team of musicians! We are so thrilled that you were able to have a special moment to drink in the romantic sound of the harp and cello! All the best to you both!

    I clicked on “yes” if I would recommend but it’s more “yes” and “no”. Quite steeply priced for an hour of music, book way ahead in advance and be sure to ask if she takes requests if it’s important to you otherwise you won’t truly get a personalised experience.

    Naomi set up in an area that wasn’t agreed on with Chantal so we didn’t get to capture her playing in our wedding video which was unfortunate as the playing was too beautiful to be tucked away in a corner with no visibility. We were lucky it was a small enough wedding for everyone to hear her. We didn’t hear the Game of Thrones theme song that we requested for our outro but what can you do.

    Chantal responds quite quickly to emails which is a plus because wedding planning can be hectic. Very professional in that regard.

    Thanks Chantal and Naomi for your services.

    Thanks for your review Orpah, I appreciate your honesty in regards to our music flexibility . We do have a policy in place now that brides need to request special music 8 weeks in advance. This way brides know right up front what they can expect from us. With the amount of weddings we do we are just not able to take last minute requests, there is little time to rehearse and we don't want to jeopardize our level of performance. In regards to where Naomi had to set up, it was raining that day so she had to be under the patio for protection of the harp, it was unfortunate that you had unpredictable weather but the harp is made of natural wood and metals and cannot tolerate even a few sprinkles. I am sorry you did not hear Game of Thrones however Naomi mentioned to me that your guests made some great comments about the piece and really enjoyed hearing it on the harp!
    Thanks for your understanding and for taking the time to write a review. All the best to you both!

    Chantal played her harp during our wedding ceremony on June 10th, 2017. She did a fabulous job and we got nothing but compliments from our guests. It also added a unique and special feel to the ceremony. Thank you Chantal for your amazing performance.
