Margaret's harp with flute was very beautiful. We were very happy with the service and she was very easy and professional to work with. I was quite frantic and a bit overwhelmed during the party but I didnt have to worry about the music, Margaret took care of everything without me even having to ask or give directions. I can absolutely recommend her.
