Kristal is a native of Santa Clara Valley who has been performing on the harp for over a decade. She’s in demand for solo performances, recordings, ensembles, teaching, weddings, private parties, afternoon teas, or any special event. Clients appreciate Kristal’s attention to detail and her ability to bring out each client’s personality in her selected repertoire. Kristal enjoys those engagements where she is able to provide an extraordinary atmosphere that is conducive to conversation, companionship, and memorable moments for those in attendance.
“When I was three I was first exposed to the harp while attending a party. Although it sounds funny, I knew then I was supposed to play the harp!” Kristal recalls. Her parents thought it might be a passing fancy, but Kristal’s persistence eventually brought about harp lessons and her very own harp.
Although Kristal enjoys using her musical skills in many venues, she is particularly drawn to small, intimate occasions. These circumstances allow her to see the effect that her music has on her listeners as it transforms stress into tranquility – hurriedness into serenity.
What part does she feel she plays in a wedding ceremony? “It is important to understand what the bride and groom are looking to communicate during their ceremony. That is why I spend a lot of time interviewing the bride, seeking to find out what sort of mood and atmosphere she is trying to create. Weddings, although blessed occasions, have a tendency to produce stress. I feel my role is to anticipate this and perform my music so as to reduce the normal tensions and provide a context in which this meaningful moment is able to be enjoyed without distraction.”
