A professional degreed harpist for over 30 years, I have performed worldwide as a harp soloist -from restaurants and hotels to small ensembles and orchestras. I specialize in providing the perfect musical setting for all types of occasions. The lovely melodic sounds of the harp create just the right mood for romantic weddings, elegant social and business events, or for quiet and relaxed fine dining. Some of my videos, which have won critical acclaim, may be seen on YouTube (search under evaharp). Please contact me if you would like personal references from loyal clients who hire me repeatedly. I would also be happy to provide recommendations from very respected professional musicians who I have worked with.

Harp Elegance by Eva
I began studying piano at age 6. I have played the harp for 35 years. I worked at the harp seriously, studying with a University professor (she held a Masters degree in harp performance from The Eastman School of Music) from the time that I was a twelve year old beginner. I have also studied privately with the top jazz harpist in the world, Deborah Henson-Conant in Boston. I have a degree in harp performance (SMU in Dallas, 83). My teacher at SMU, who was the Principal Harpist for the Dallas Symphony Orchestra for 25 years, earned her Masters Degree from the Julliard School of Music. She had been a prot'g of Marcel Grandjany, one of the two greatest harpists and harp composers of the twentieth century.
For over 15 years I played the harp (light classics and pop music) on a daily basis for the elegant Caf Capri in Dallas, Texas. I have performed in many other places around the country. I have also performed in Canada, Mexico, Europe and Asia. I take my career and my professional development seriously. I have regularly over the years participated in numerous harp master classes and workshops, as well as national and international harp conferences.
