Valentine’s Night with harpist in Wolverhampton
It’s the day of love, and what better way to celebrate than a beautiful dinner accompanied by an entertaining and inspiring harpist?
Many couples take the opportunity on 14 February, St Valentine’s Day, to celebrate their love by sharing a romantic meal together. It has been my pleasure to play the harp for many of those romantic meals around Birmingham and the West Midlands for the last 7 years.
This year Valentine’s Day landed on a Tuesday evening and I had the pleasure of playing at the Ramada Park Hall & Spa in Wolverhampton. The lights were dimmed romantically in The Orangery restaurant where I set up my golden Wurlitzer harp. Each of the tables was tastefully dressed with candles, hearts and a red rose.
The acoustics beautifully supported the harp music and sent it soaring throughout the room. Many of the guests commented on the harp music; there was even a very loud “Oooohhh, a harpist!” exclaimed by one very excited guest as she entered the room!
The repertoire for the evening included the love songs from the movie classics Love Story, Romeo and Juliet, The Godfather, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Somewhere in Time, A Chorus Line and Les Miserables, along with classical tunes and more popular tunes such as Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol, I Knew I Loved You by Savage Garden, Rather Be by Clean Bandit and A Thousand Years from Twilight.
It was a pleasure to play at the Ramada Park Hall and I hope to be back again soon.
