    We hired Rachel from Chantal Dube for my bridal shower. I was told by my planner that she was late setting up and she was setting up while guests were in cocktail hour. She was dressed ok- but I was expecting more formal. I did not personally hear the music because of the crowd- I expected it to be louder in a crowd of less than 100 women.

    Chantal Dube, The Harpist's reply:

    Thanks for your review. I spoke with Rachel and although she did not arrive as early as she would have liked (do to a bike parade she was behind) she did start on time. She said that she was working alongside your planner and you can verify this with her if you have any doubts. Rachel also mentioned that the guests did seem to be there early and were also waiting for the bar to open. Sometimes guests arrive earlier than we anticipate, but I assure you if you double check with your planner she did start on time. In regards to the sound issues Rachel told me it was an extremely windy day, so much so that her music stand was falling over and she had to keep a foot on it for it to stabilize. She also mentioned the wind was so strong cocktail tables were blowing over. I am so sorry this happened on your special day, it's unfortunate that the weather did not co-operate for us all. The severe winds would have definitely been the reason you could not hear her well, it would have carried the sound away. Sometimes a gentle wind works in our favor and we are able to set up in a such a way that it blows our sound towards the guests. In this case unfortunately not even a microphone would have been helpful because it would have picked up more of the sound of the wind than the harp. With regret, we could have done nothing about this due to the severity of the wind nor could we have predicted these circumstances. Thanks again for taking the time to review our services, all the best to you both. I am sorry once again that the wind made for unfortunate circumstances.

    Chantal was great to work with and made our ceremony music so simple for us to manage. Her harp playing was absolutely beautiful at our wedding ceremony and for our first dance. The harp music added elegance to the event and we got many compliments on it. We would highly recommend her!

    My daughters bridal shower was an evening filled with beautiful and harmonious sounds coming from Chantal Dube's harp.
    From the beginning it was effortless to get a hold of Chantal and book both of my occasions. She responded to both my phone calls and emails promptly.
    She is truly an added piece of elegance to any occasion, and anyone would be fortunate to have her beautiful music fill their room.

    We debated over what live music to have at our ceremony, and we are so glad we chose a harpist, it added such a special touch to the ceremony and our guests (and my husband and I) were thrilled with the quality and music. Highly recommend!

    We thought Chantal was amazing, loved her work on the harp and I would strongly recommend her to anyone. Although it is pricy it is well worth it for her and for your wedding for sure! She's excellent!

    I am pleased to give Chantal my highest recommendation for her work as a harpist at my wedding. She was a delight not only to hear, but also to work with. From start to finish, she was pleasant, professional, punctual, attentive, helpful and sincerely interested in making my day very personal and full of lasting memories that I will cherish. She played for one hour during the dinner, and her exquisite playing added a wonderful sense of elegance, peace and uniqueness to the event. I had positive comments from my guests, who also commented on how beautifully Chantal played and how much her presence added to their enjoyment of my wedding. Asking Chantal to play was absolutely one of the very best choices I made for my special day, and her presence was the fulfillment of a very long-held desire to have beautiful harp music for my guests. I was completely satisfied and will cherish her music as one of my favourite memories of my wedding.

    Chantal was incredibly professional and played beautifully for our ceremony. We received nothing but compliments from our friends and family on how much they enjoyed the music for our ceremony. She was flexible when it came to our music choices and song changes for when the bridal party walked down the aisle. I would highly recommend her.

    Thank you so much for making my daughter's bridal shower (Melissa) such a success on June 26, 2016. Your added touch of classical music completed the vision of what we had with the Spa theme. All of our guests complimented on your music and expressed how much it added to the overall event. Not only was this our first experience but also the first for our guests. Chantal, I also appreciate your flexibility in staying longer at our event. I am sure this was difficult knowing that you have a busy schedule. We are also grateful with your interaction with our family in taking pictures which we will always treasure.
    I highly recommend Chantal to anyone who is looking for an added touch to their events. She comes with great experience, good music and a wonderful personality.
    Once again, thank you Chantal !!!!

    Thanks so much for your kind words Nadia, I had a a great time performing for your daughter's bridal shower! It was a beautiful theme and the food was amazing which kept me going til the very end of the event! I especially enjoyed sharing the box of cookies you sent home with myself along with each guest. My mom and I enjoyed every bite as I told her all about you all and how they were homemade with a machine from Italy! I hope to be able to perform for you again soon! All the best at the wedding!

    Chantal performed the music for our wedding ceremony & cocktail reception. She is an amazing harpist & added a touch of class to our wedding. She was very helpful in helping select the music & accommodated any requests we had. We highly recommend Chantal for any event.
