Thank you so much for playing at our daughters wedding. The harp music was the perfect touch for the ambiance during the cocktail hour in the yard at The Briarcliff Manor overlooking the Hudson River.Your selection of songs was great it was the beginning of a flawlessevening for our family and friends. I know the venue will be calling you in the future and so we will as we have 3 other children!    Steve & Sandy Santini - Mahopac, NY

 

Thank you Debra for playing at my wedding on at the Surf Club. The harp music was amazing. My guests were impressed with the ceremony, as you arranged the music perfectly. We couldn’t have asked for a better day. Everything flowed very well from beginning to end. I would certainly recommend you to future events without hesitation. Thanks again for being apart of our special day.

We were privileged to have Debra Whitman perform at our wedding at the Tarrytown House Estate. She is truly an accomplished musician with an impressive repertoire. Our ceremony was outside on the terrace surrounded by lush greenery, and Debra's harp was central to creating an unforgettable experience for us and our guests. Her interpretations were perfectly nuanced, capturing the emotional essence of the pieces without overt sentimentality. She is an elegant lady and a professional throughout the process. Debra was very receptive to our musical preferences and played our favorites (highlighted by compositions from Satie & Debussy) throughout our cocktail hour. We depended on Debra for our special day and she delivered!-Jinny & Jim C.
