Just a wonderful experience to hear Anna play. We organised this as a thank you for the team for their hard work. It was amazing to see how much everyone enjoyed it. Anna was very easy to work with on organising the session, was very responsive and managed the session really well. We've already agreed we'd like to hear her play again as a team.

Anna was incredible- her livestream performance was arranged as a surprise for our team at work and it genuinely was fantastic. Anna is so talented and friendly too, even going above and beyond by providing an encore for our group with no notice! Thank you so much Anna for genuinely brightening our day, you've left the team buzzing

I booked Anna for a virtual baby shower for my best friend with people joining from all over the world. Anna blew us all away! She did a musical quiz with soundtracks from famous movies, everyone was so inspired by how incredible that sounded on the harp. She also played a final piece for us that is really special to the mum-to-be. Thank you so much Anna, it made the event really special and everyone said afterwards how much they loved your playing. It also got called the highlight of 2021 even though we're only a week in! :)

Anna played one of my favourite Debussy songs (premiere arabesque) on the harp and it was beautiful.
