Mary is a conservatory-trained professional harpist. Though based between Denver & Boulder, she travels along the Front Range and into the mountains to create exquisite music for private and corporate clients. Since moving to Colorado more than ten years ago, Mary has performed for more than 500 weddings and countless other special occasions.
In addition to performing as a soloist, Mary enjoys playing as needed with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra, alongside principal harpist Courtney Hershey Bress.
Mary's wide repertoire includes many genres, and she is always eager to accommodate special requests, when made in advance. She is available to play for just about any type of event and also teaches private harp lessons to students of all ages.
Mary attended the Eastman School of Music, where she studied with Kathleen Bride, earning a degree in Harp Performance. As a proud alum, she can't help but note that in the most recent surveys conducted by US News and World Report, the Eastman School has ranked first among all music programs in the United States.
Mary lives in Arvada with her husband, three young children, and their two dogs (an elderly Boston terrier and a Goldendoodle puppy).
