Harpist Miriam Shilling

Long Island
(631) 974-6939

Harpist Miriam Shilling Harpist Miriam Shilling is an accomplished musician with a wonderfully versatile repertoire. She has more than 30 years experience performing at weddings and other special occasions, assuring a beautiful soundtrack to fit your occasion perfectly.

Nothing brings elegance and beauty to a wedding ceremony like the sweet sounds of a harp. Greet your guests with classical music as they are seated to await the wedding procession and let the harp set the scene for your most special of days. Then, bring the soft sound track to your cocktail hour—a tuneful, but unobtrusive alternative to other musical options. Prefer something a bit more lively for the cocktail hour? Miriam Shilling is ready to play favorite standards and contemporary pieces on harp, as well. Really—this is not your grandmother's harp music—you will be quite surprised at how versatile an instrument the harp can be, especially in the hands of the accomplished musician that Harpist Miriam is. She is ready to play favorite pieces from traditional, classical, and contemporary collections. Depending on the occasion, she will also provide piano music, as long as you can provide the piano.

Miriam will perform nearly anywhere (but please no beaches--bad for the harp), for any occasion and often at a moment's notice. With her broad experience, she is a delightful guide for selecting the pieces that would work best for your occasion.

Save the DJ for the reception's dance party, but bring a touch of heaven to your ceremony with the beautiful music of Harpist Miriam Shilling.

Mark Negron Musician Mark Negron is a polished solo vocalist, accompanied by his acoustic guitar, offering a lovely soundtrack to your cocktail hour or intimate gathering. He has been working the wedding and party circuit for years, specializing in classic rock and the softer sounds of the 70s, but his repertoire is quite broad and can please musical tastes for everyone across the generations.

Priced right, and quite talented, Mark Negron offers an alternative to the DJ's usually too loud and not quite right selections for the cocktail hour or other low key part of your celebration. Also, a live musician will better read the crowd and the mood to adjust the performance so everyone actually enjoys. Mark has more than 25 years of experience in live performances, from weddings to the Long Island club scene, so you can count on him to entertain and "warm-up" the crowd so they are ready to dance the night away once the party really gets started.

And if you are thinking of a full band for the reception, ask Mark about the Modern Justice Band. He'll strap on the electric guitar and join them for the dancing and dining you have planned later in the evening. They will definitely get the party rocking.

Once you experience music by Mark Negron, and enjoy his ever-so-pleasant company, you will definitely ditch the iPod and treat your guests and yourselves to a wonderful live performance, whether is it just for the cocktails or the entire evening. You can meet Mark and see his live performances at North Fork and Hamptons wineries and clubs. Contact him by email for a list of his upcoming performances. Then plan to have live music at your next celebration, because you will definitely want to hire him.
