What to Expect
Janna will arrive approximately 30 minutes early to meet with the event coordinator and set up. She will start prelude music as your guests arrive, usually 20 minutes before the ceremony. When the coordinator gives the signal, she will proceed to your chosen processional music. If desired, she can play a soft, meditative piece during a unity ceremony or other mid-ceremony moment. The recessional comes as a lively tune, just after you have been announced as husband and wife! She will play a few minutes of postludes as your guests exit.
While the harp is often thought of as playing swirling classical pieces, it is actually capable of many styles! Besides your traditional wedding music Janna can play a variety of celtic tunes, sacred music and even your favorite movie theme! Below is a partial list of her repertoire.
