Private events with harpist, Brandee Younger

Performing for more than 18 years, Ms. Younger has become one of the most in demand harpists in modern music, having worked across genres in classical, jazz and popular styles. Known for her versatility, she performs everything from traditional classical wedding music to The Beatles and Stevie Wonder. She received her bachelor of music in Harp Performance and Music Management from the Hartt School of Music, at The University of Hartford and her master of music in Harp Performance and composition from New York University.

For weddings, she works not only as a soloist, but as as ensemble with flute, and with the Brandee Younger Jazz Trio or Quartet (harp, bass & drums, horn). In addition to performing, Ms. Younger teaches harp at Adelphi University, The Hartt School Community Division and the Greenwich House Music School.

Brandee is amazing!! I studied music for many years, so it was a must that I had a harpist play at my wedding! When I looked on wedding websites to find the perfect happiest, it was very easy to choose Brandee. I listened to a bunch of harpists websites and I completely fell in love with her style. Her playing is so incredibly beautiful! Then after speaking with her, I knew she was "the one"! I chose Brandee to play for my ceremony, and then for my cocktail hour. Everything was flawless, and I only wish I had time to thank her in person on my wedding day, in between getting pulled in a million directions! Thank you Brandee!!

Ms. Younger played beautifully and showed exceptional professionalism. My wedding was unfortunately delayed quite a bit, and she kept guests entertained until we could start. In the weeks leading up to the wedding, Ms. Younger was very responsive and helpful. I would absolutely hire her again.

I must say Ms. Brandee Younger was perfect in ALL aforementioned categories, from the time I was referred to her by another Harpist who could not make the date to her professionalism and flexibility of what music we wanted to hear. She even agreed a few days before the wedding to provide the music at another location for our contingency plan if it rained (as it was supposed to!). I did my research on Ms. Younger after she was referenced and I was impressed before even agreeing to use her. She has performed with Talib Kweli and Ravi Coltrane...NUFF SAID! (If I am not mistaken she has played with Alice Coltrane in the past as well!)

Her musicianship was a GREAT top off to a beautiful wedding. One of the best weddings I have ever been apart of and I was blessed to be the groom in! LOL! I absolutely plan on using her again.

Ms. Younger was amazing. She was so patient during initial process dealing with the "scattered" bride. On my wedding day every thing was wonderful, they were on time and very professional. She did great job of understanding the atmosphere I wanted to create, her musical sections were spot on. I really really enjoyed her and the musicians that played with her. They were and terrific addition to my day. I would have no trouble using calling her again for my next event.

Brandee was a pleasure to work with. We planned most of the wedding songs and ideas over email and phone, and when I met her in person I was so happy. She was very sweet and very talented. She played our ceremony and cocktail hour. When I walked down the isle to her harp, i felt like i was walking in heaven. It was amazing. The harp gave my ceremony a special touch. Live heavenly music.

Wow! Elegant, beautiful, classic....Brandee Younger provided exquisite renditions of jazz classics at my wedding ceremony. She worked with me for hours picking out the repertoire, and organizing the pacing of the selection. She is a very gifted musician and helped to make the day magic.
