We are a mother / daughter duo playing the keyboard and harp. We create a graceful, classic sound that adds sparkle to any event. Our music is exquisitely tender and sweet. There is nothing like the harp to touch the heart-strings.

Piano / Keyboard: Jana, (the mother) has played piano since childhood and is able to play any piano at your venue, or she will bring her keyboard with sound system for effective amplification out of doors, if needed. She has chosen a wide variety of lovely and utterly appropriate music for before, during and after the wedding ceremony. The mother currently works as a high-school Spanish teacher during the week, and she is happy to work in a bilingual setting, if needed.

Harp: Grace, (the daughter) has 5 years of music instruction on piano and harp. She adds simple, peaceful melodies and glissandos to the more elaborate keyboard of her mother. The daughter plays a 5-and-a-half foot tall gold-tone Lyon & Healy pedal Harp. The instrument is striking to look at and gorgeous to listen to!

Some of the recommended songs in our repertoire are: All I Ask of You, Always, Amazed, At Last, Aura Lee, Ave Maria, Ballad for Harp and Keys, Bless the Broken Road, Breathe, Butterfly Kisses, Bridal Chorus from Lohengrin, Canon in D, Cherish the Treasure, Dreaming, Edelweiss, Einaudi's Nuvole Bianche, Einaudi's I giorni, Endless Love, Follow Me, For Baby/For Bobbie, From this Moment On, Fur Elise, Give Thanks, Hang Gliders, Hallelujah, I Do (Cherish You), I Love You Truly, I Swear, I Will Be Here, Jazz Waltz, Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring, Liebestraum, Love Theme from 'Titanic', Longer, Bach's Minuet in G, Mountain Melody, Morning, Northwoods Wedding, Ode to Joy, Pathetique Sonata, Season's of Love (from Rent), Sonatina in C, Slumber Song, Someday, Stronger, Sunset, The Lord's Prayer, The Prayer, The Wedding March (Mendelssohn), This Magic Moment, A Thousand Miles, Trumpet Voluntary, Unchained Melody, Wedding Song (There Is Love), Wind Beneath My Wings, With this Ring, You Light Up My Life, You Raise Me Up, and more...

Details

Both the Harp and Keyboard are instruments that need a flat surface on which to play. More importantly, both instruments are sensitive to strong sun, wind and rain. A porch or covered area is the best choice for ceremony musicians for any outdoor event. In the event of rain, we will be unable to play out of doors.

We are located in the Vacaville/ Davis area, but we are willing to travel for a small added fee.

If you couldn't decide between the pleasant sound of the piano or the elegant harp, now you don't have to. We provide both!

Contact Jana Gittings at: (707) 693-1896 to schedule a free appointment to select music and discuss dates, pricing and other details.

More about the Lyon & Healy Harp

Lyon & Healy is known by harpists as the world's premiere harp maker. From the hallowed halls of the New York Philharmonic to the Bolshoi Ballet, Lyon & Healy Harps are acclaimed throughout the world for their remarkable depth and clarity of sound, breathtaking designs, and rich heritage of quality craftsmanship. With 120 years of experience, each hand crafted pedal harp is instilled with a legacy of superior wood-crafting and commitment to the development of the instrument. Grace's Harp has 43 strings and 7 pedals. The pedals are used to alter the strings to play sharps and flats, (similar to the "black keys" on the piano.) This harp is constructed of hard maple and sitka spruce, and finished with gold-tone and a warm natural wood stain.

The musicians, Jana and Grace and their sound engineer, Bruce showed up so well prepared by finding the ideal setup to blend with the wedding service. Guests arriving and finding their seating were greeted with music that brought them straight into the feeling of celebration. There was a restful spiritual flow as they played through each musical piece. Even with a few minutes of unexpected delay in our wedding procession, the ladies knew how to fill the pause with gentle music and therefore no one realized that we had any behind the scenes delay. Our wedding guests said it was one of the best ceremonies they had ever attended. Thank you Jana, Grace and Bruce for creating and performing a musical set that allowed my son and daughter-in-law to enjoy and remember the best day of their lives! If my other son has a wedding in the future, we will certainly be calling to schedule Graceful Harp & Keyboard once again! Tom Ryan - tommyjohn59@yahoo.com
