I love performing for weddings and a variety of events in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina. I often perform for our resorts throughout the Asheville area, which has now become a national destination wedding location. Corporate events, private parties, fund raisers...I'm always interested in hearing your new ideas that would include live music.

My instruments are harp, Celtic harp and hammered dulcimer for something a little unusual! I have a variety of music partners and provide the following ensembles:

classical guitar and hammered dulcimer

solo harp

solo hammered dulicmer

harp and cello

harp and violin

Celtic harp, Irish flute and hammered dulcimer trio

harp, cello and violin trio

I have various options to try to fit budgets and the number of guests attending your event. You can request a price for solo harp with one hour for wedding ceremony and for larger groups something like a trio for wedding and cocktail hour. Or I can quote both a solo and ensemble price for you to review.

Donna was prompt and clear with all her communication, including her contract. She readily located a violinist, Linda Kendall Fields, to join her at our request. Clearly these musicians worked well together and played beautiful music at our daughter's wedding. They were very organized, keeping track of requested selections and time frames as well as adding their own choices of selections that rounded out the prelude music to fit the style and crowd for our wedding event. Both musicians were highly professional, cordial, and made beautiful contributions to our celebration. They handled every detail right down to a quick plan to switch in order to accommodate rain if necessary. I highly recommend Donna's service (and Linda's).

Donna played the harp for our January wedding ceremony at the Conservatory on Biltmore Estate and she did such an amazing job! The music sounded great and weeks before she checked with us to make sure that she knew our exact song requests. We were very happy with our decision to pick Donna for our ceremony musician!

Donna was wonderful to work with and very responsive to any questions I had throughout the process of planning the music for our wedding ceremony. She was willing to go above and beyond and refresh herself on songs she had not played frequently. Her harp sounded beautiful in the outdoor mountain setting. She was flexible and made adjustments for an unusual venue (a meadow). She is kind and plays beautiful music...what more could I ask for? Thanks, Donna!!

Donna Germano played her beautiful harp music for our daughter's wedding ceremony and reception on August 17th at the Biltmore Village Inn in Asheville. She is absolutely an amazing talent and her repertoire is extensive! She is so easy to work with and her website is a wonderful help as you make your plans. My daughter and I were able to listen to each of her pieces online and make our selections easily without having to make an extra trip to Asheville to hear her play. She is a wonderful sport as she had to make several moves with her harp due to rain. You will love her!

Donna was wonderful !!!!! Our wedding day was really the best day of our lives. The music was spot on !! I couldn't have asked for anything better. I lived 4 hours away from Asheville NC so I planned all this online. Everything was a complete success !!! Thanks again Donna

I cannot explain how perfect Donna was for the type of Reception we were trying to create. We held our Reception at the Biltmore Inn during the Christmas Season. The hammered Dulcimer music was absolutely the most fitting music for this time of year. She played nearly the entire reception festivities and set the tone for a intimate and warm atmosphere for the group. So happy with my choice to hire Donna for this special event for my one and only Daughter.
