After months of planning my parents’ 50th anniversary party, of agonizing
decisions over silly things like seating charts and what sort of chilled soup toI w
serve (white peach), my father dropped a last minute surprise into the mix: “I
want a harp.” Lucky for him and all our guests, I found Miriam Weber Brown, who
graciously agreed to the last-minute gig, and proceeded to knock us out.
Ms. Weber Brown, who can be found at,
made our night. Her repertoire is extensive, and many of her selections are
sampled on her website, so potential clients can get a preview of her talent. In
addition, she was more than happy to add several favorite tunes to her extensive
collection, so that my parents could have everything they wanted. Her range
includes classical, show tunes, pop, rock, jazz, big band, and so much more, and
her magical fingers make each song sound as if the original artists composed it
for her harp.
The harp itself is gold, and drew a stream of party guests to her corner of
the room, where she happily answered questions as she played. I had explained in
advance that her role would be to provide background music during the entire
event, and she was so easy to work with on this. Miriam is charming and
graceful, and she is not a diva. Even before she played for us, she was quick to
respond to my constant stream of messages.
Miriam has performed at public and private events throughout the Columbus
area, to rave reviews from brides, restaurateurs, and more. In addition to
playing as a soloist, she also works closely with a flutist to offer an
additional option.
Her rates are competitive and when a restaurant glitch added an extra hour
to our event, she discreetly came to me and offered to play on…a most welcome
encore for only a small additional fee, and worth every penny. I can’t imagine
how her fingers felt after four hours of playing with only two short breaks, but
the smile never left her face.
To answer the obvious, she is wildly talented, and over a month later, our
guests are still raving about what she added to our evening. Miriam loves what
she’s doing and that joy flows out in her music.  Brava!
