While Cheryl was unable to play at our event due to a scheduling conflict caused by snowfall in the DC area, she was the consummate professional throughout the entire process.

She was very helpful assisting myself and my bride with musical selections for our ceremony. Once the conflict arose due to rescheduling the wedding, she went above and beyond to find us replacements harpists to choose from at no additional cost or hassle to us.

Cheryl demonstrated a level of professionalism, friendliness and class you rarely see in people these days. You would be hard pressed to find a better person to enhance your special day.

Cheryl was very flexible, professional and easy to work with. She even offered suggestions of other instruments (and provided some contacts) if I decided not to use a harp, but in the end I decided to book Cheryl for our wedding and it was perfect!

Cheryl is a pleasure to work with. She is extremely professional and responsive. She provided us with a CD of her music and recommended the perfect combination of classical and contemporary music for the event. Everyone loved the music. The harp is such a beautiful instrument, wedding attendees from out of town inquired about how to get a harp and harp lessons and Chery quickly provided information on who to contact. You will enjoy working with Cheryl; she'll add the perfect touch to you special event.

Quite simply, Cherly Roeske is an AMAZING harpist and just personifies elegance. We had our wedding at the Hay-Adam's (at the Top of the Hay) and Cherly was the perfect compliment to our day. Her talents are extraordinary matched only by her grace and manner in which she plays. What's really nice is that several days have passed since our wedding and our family and friend still continue to rave about Cherly's talents. What I'm most thankful for you is that I had the privilege of getting married to most amazing woman (my wife). And I will never forget the image her walking down the isle with the subtle and beautiful sounds of Cheryl playing the harp in the background. That is a memory that I will savor and never forget. It was sublime. Thank you Cherly for helping make our day so special. You are absolutely wonderful and my wife and I are so glad that we had the pleasure of meeting you. We will be referring you to our friends and business associates EVERY opportunity we get!!!! We are already looking forward to hearing you in concert in September 2012!

We wanted a unique sophisticated touch to our reception. Cheryl and her music provided just that classic, subtle experience for which we were looking. Many of our guests seated themselves and enjoyed the heavenly music.If I were to ever have an event that required that effect again, I would happily ask for Cheryl.

Cheryl Roeske, Concert Harpist is an amazing artist and friend. Cheryl and I have performed several concerts together throughout the years, and it's always a pleasure to see and work with her. In November, 2010, Cheryl performed a Dual Harp Concert with Harpist, Diane Michaels in the oldest church in York, PA, Trinity United Church of Christ. With their artistry and amazing acoustics, the performance was breath taking. It's an honor to call her my colleague and friend. Best wishes always!

Ms. Roeske provided the music for my reception. She was very professional and the music was lovely. I would highly recommend her services for ANY sort of occasion. She is also very flexible as my wedding was very small and at an unusual venue but she had no problem accommodating my request.

Simply Beautiful. The combination of Harp and Flute was wonderful. I am a musician myself and very picky about my music. My family and guests are still talking about them. Cheryl was very easy to work with, on time and even stayed beyond her time commitment. The Bridesmaids were a bit late. I highly recommend Cheryl for you next event. She is absolutely a pleasure to work with.

Cheryl was one of the easiest vendors to work with. She has tons of experience and really knows how to give you great advice to make the proper choices with regard to your musicial selections. She's exceptionally pleasant and very patient. I sent her quite a few emails and she never seemed perturbed. I highly recommend her to anyone who desires an exquisite event.

You will not be disappointed in your choice of musicians if you choose Ms. Roeske. Her music is beautiful and thoughtful for any occasion. She finds out your likes and preferences before the event and incorporates what you have expressed in her music. I have never been disappointed at any time when I have heard her play.

Dear Cheryl.

Your harp performance at our wedding was an absolute highlight. Even now, people still ask us about the beautiful music and artist. You added just the right touch of elegance to the ceremony and made it that much more memorable.

With your large musical repertoire, it was easy for us to select the right songs. And you were great in coming early and dealing with any last-minute changes. You are a true professional and I will recommend you to all my friends.

Thanks so much for the wonderful job you did for us,

Nathan

My wife and I are still sitting on cloud nine after having you play at our wedding.. I didn't get to personally thank you before you left the ceremony, but I wanted to extend my deepest and most sincere gratitude to you for lending us your talent and being a part of what will be our most cherished memory.

Your music set the exact tone we wanted and added class to our ceremony. I can still hear you playing every time I see my wife walking through the gate. I'll never forget it. You are a master at your craft, and we were blessed to have you.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

My experience with Cheryl Roeske was one of extreme delight.From the first conversation I had with her she was polite and professional but still was very personable. Every question I asked she had an answer for and put my mind at ease. It was one less thing I needed to worry about. The day of the wedding Cheryl on prompt and set up well before the guests arrived. The response from the guests was confirmation that I made the right decision. I highly recommend Cheryl. Her performance was stellar and made my special day that much more.

Cheryl Roeske, Harpist, added a very special touch to our wedding ceremony. Throughout the entire process she was very professional. During the planning stages and once we had decided we were going to hire her, it was a little difficult getting immediate responses from her but this was largely due to her hectic travel schedule. However, she was very accommodating in helping finalize music selections the week before the wedding. Aside from traffic problems which got her to the church a little later than anticipated, everything went fine on the day of the wedding. All of our guests enjoyed her performance and thought it added the perfect touch of elegance to our evening wedding. I only wish we could have gotten a picture with her and the harp before she left.
