    Chantal was such a beautiful addition to our wedding at Langdon Hall - she was super accommodating and responsive (even when she was on vacation). Provided excellent song recommendations and was able to play all our song requests too!

    Thanks for allowing me to be such a special part of your day. Langdon Hall was a treat to perform at and the weather could not have been any more perfect for your day. I was thrilled to be able to fulfill your song requests and I am still enjoying the new Taylor Swift song I learned for you! It's a great addition to my repertoire, all the best to you both!

    We were actually Chantal's very first clients! I won't say how many years ago that was. She was tremendous then and still is now. I know this from being guests at a recent wedding. I would recommend her service to anyone!

    Chantal played during dinner at our wedding reception and everything worked out perfectly. She came right on time and stayed for the full duration that we agreed upon. It was the first time many at our wedding reception heard the harp play and they were all impressed by both it's sound and Chantal's abilities. I highly recommend Chantal.

    I discovered Chantal on the internet when I was considering a harpist for a bridal shower which I was organizing. I very much enjoyed the warmth and talent in Chantal's music and presentation. Chantal was very accommodating, professional, and charming on the phone and in our email communications. In person, Chantal is even more lovely. What a wonderful afternoon! I wouldn't hesitate in asking Chantal to play for us again some time. And I certainly recommend Harpist Chantal Dube. Her presence, her music, her warmth, her lovely harp, add a delightful dimension to entertaining.

    Chantal was exceptional for our 60th birthday "High Tea" gathering.....

    Comments from the many guests were all positive....her professionalism was very evident and her music was more than fitting for the occasion...

    I would highly recommend her abilities without question....

    I am an event and wedding planner and as such it is my responsibility to obtain services for my clients including music and entertainment. Chantal was a fantastic harpist. One of the best I have worked with in over 30 years. She was professional right from the initial contact, easy to work with. She arrived in good time and her selection of songs was just perfect for the special ladies' tea event. She played long sets with very little break in between and never had to resort to recorded music. Plus she is beautiful and wore an elegant dress befitting the occasion. Her rates are very reasonable. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in using her services again and would highly recommend her

    Thanks for your sincere words Linda, I appreciate that you noticed details about my level of service that are so important to me. For example, long sets with very little break in between and never having to resort to recorded music. Thank you for also noticing my elegant dress which I truly do believe befits the occasion as you mentioned. Your efforts to mention these details will help educate others looking to hire musicians! Thank you!

    We originally heard of Chantal at The Wedding Co show in February 2015. My husband (fiancé at the time) heard her play and told me that he had always wanted a harpist at his wedding. We took her card, but as we were in the very early stages of planning didn't do anything further about it. After we had secured our venue we looked at its list of preferred vendors and her name was on it. After we watched a couple of her youtube videos we contacted her and booked her to play during our wedding and our cocktail time.
    Chantal provided us with a list of her repertoire, and we selected our processional, recessional, and signing of the register music. We also picked a few specific songs that we wanted to have her play at the reception.
    The day of the wedding she arrived ahead of time, and set up. Our venue mentioned that she was one of their favourite vendors to work with. The reviews we got from our guests regarding her playing were fantastic, and we were told that some would like to find a way to hire her for their own events. She played a wide variety of music... Numerous styles. One person told me that she was even able to play music from The Game of Thrones.
    My only regret regarding the music was that as the bride I was so occupied waiting for the ceremony to begin, taking photos outside, and visiting with guests that I didn't have the chance to really take in the music. My hope is that others will decide to hold an event and hire Chantal, and then invite me to attend.
    In summary, we had a fantastic experience with Chantal, and would 100% recommend her to anyone!

    Thank you for your thoughtful review Elizabeth! I am so glad your guests gave you great feedback about my performance. Hopefully one of your friends will hire me for their wedding or special event so you can have a chance to enjoy my performance more! I hear that comment a lot from brides, wishing they heard more of my performance. It's a compliment to me, thank you again!

    We couldn’t imagine any other live music act to have performed during our greatest milestone. Chantal was engaging and provided brilliant guidance and support during the planning stages. She graced us with her presence for two hours by playing during the guest arrival period, the ceremony and for the cocktail hour that followed. Chantal truly set the tone for the moment when we saw each other for the first time at opposite ends of the aisle and then provide the perfect atmosphere for our guests as family and wedding party photos were being taken. We cannot provide a high enough recommendation to another couple who are looking for a musical performance on their wedding day.

    Jason, thanks so much for your touching review! I am honored every weekend to be a part of 'that moment' when couples see each other for the first time at opposite ends of the aisle. It's the best part of my job! Thanks for your review!

    It was a pleasure to work with Chantal, as she was very easy to work with and all of our guests enjoyed her music. Prior to our wedding at the Quad in Hart House, University of Toronto, Chantal connected with us via internet to provide consultation and played live samples of her music. She also accommodated our dress code and arrived early despite her long commute. All in all, her performance was a definite plus for our ceremony and we would recommend her to all our friends.

    Thank you Jay for your kind words! Thanks for mentioning that I was able to accommodate your dress code and arrived early, these are details that will help educate more couples when trying to hire a musician. It's so important to be easy to work with and I value making that a priority for all my clients!

    It was a delight having Chantal play during our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. The music from her harp gave the ceremony a very romantic and elegant feel. We corresponded through email and she would always respond quickly. We met on our wedding day and she came early to set up and meet our officiant to coordinate the ceremony. Our guests all enjoyed having her play the harp. We got to choose all our music from her large repertoire, which included contemporary and classical music.

    My husband and I highly recommend Chantal to play at your wedding. She's very punctual, professional and an excellent harpist.

    Thanks again Chantal for making our ceremony special with your pieces.

    Chantal Dube, The Harpist's reply:

    Thank you Irene for your great review of my services. Your mention of how we corresponded through email and that I would always respond quickly is valuable to me. This is my full time career and I take it very seriously when dealing with clients. There is a ton of planning that goes into one day and I like to be sure my part of the planning is the easiest for my clients. By responding quickly it allows them to get another thing checked off their list! Thanks again for having me!
