Brenda played beautiful harp music for a sort of “surprise” luncheon we hosted. She is a lovely, talented lady, and everyone there heaped compliments on her music and her gorgeous harp. We will certainly call on Brenda for future events. Highly recommended!

Brenda plated at our wedding ceremony and was absolutely wonderful! My mom said her favorite part of our wedding was the beautiful harp music. She said she would have happily sat in the church for hours if Brenda would have kept playing. Brenda’s song selection is diverse and we developed the perfect playlist for our Celtic garden wedding. She also gave us a discount just for our ceremony being on a Monday! Truly superb, would hire again in a heartbeat if she lived close to us. Of all of the harpists that I looked at (believe me, a lot) she was by far the best, most talented and most reasonably priced. (And such a sweet lady! Even let us use the harp for photos.)

Brenda played the most beautiful music for my wedding 2 years ago. I’m sorry it has taken me so long to write this review as I am the worst procrastinator. It was horrible weather and we had to change venues last minute and she was so sweet and accomodating! I will forever be thankful for her whenever I think about my wedding day. Thank you Brenda!

Brenda Street was wonderful!!! She performed beautifully before, during and following the ceremony. She was so friendly and a joy to have at the ceremony. She is so pretty and she looked so pretty with her beautiful harp at the ceremony. She is a person you would like to have as a friend. I can’t say enough nice things about her and her music.
