Drew and Brie Allison
My wedding day was the most special and happy day of my life. If you are recently engaged and planning a wedding, congratulations! You are entering a wonderful, but very busy season of life! I have had the privilege of playing harp music for hundreds of weddings and receptions. I can play any hymn, sacred music or worship song; and just about any classical piece. Putting a repertoire list on my website would be rather overwhelming, because it would be thousands of selections. However, I have compiled a list of several hundred pieces that I can play, and I'd be happy to email that to you. I can also play country, pop, Jewish music, Irish tunes, jazz, etc. If I can be of service to you in planning or helping with the music for your wedding, please let me know. Here are a few of the letters I've received from happy clients:
"I had a recommendation to use Brieta as a harpist for my wedding from a friend, and went to hear her play some selections. I left that meeting overwhelmed by how talented she is and how beautiful every song was. She was also extremely professional, and very accommodating about any special requests I had concerning specific songs. She was wonderful with ongoing communication from the time of our meeting until the wedding day. She came to the rehearsal dinner, and was so helpful in perfecting timing with the songs and the processional. She shows up early and works extremely hard to make everything perfect for the bride and groom. After the wedding, I had so many comments on how beautiful the music was, and how Brieta set such an elegant tone for the wedding. I was very, very happy with how everything turned out. I would strongly recommend using Brieta for your wedding. You will have no regrets!"
--Mr. and Mrs. Jordan Williams
You did a beautiful job at the wedding and thank you for playing at the reception. If you need any references at anytime, please use our name. I will give a glowing reference! Again, thank you for adding to the very special occasion of Stacey's wedding.

Good morning, Brie! We had a great time on our honeymoon in St. Lucia. It was hard to come back home! Thank you for the GORGEOUS playing you did at our wedding. Everyone was in AWE of your abilities, and I received comment after comment about what a classy and beautiful touch your playing was for the wedding. In fact, more than one person commented that your playing was their favorite part of the ceremony! Another person hopes that you're still in the area when his daughter gets married. GREAT JOB! I was so pleased!
Talk to you soon, Amy and Michael C.
Thank you so very much for playing at my wedding. You really made it a memorable event, seeing how a harp is all I really wanted. You managed the rain, traffic and I'm sure something else, just to get to Tyler to play, and for that I am honored and grateful. I hope you never lose your energy or spunk, and I hope my marriage is as awesome as yours. Again, thank you so much!
Many, many thanks, Mrs. Eric G.
Your harp music made my dreams of my some-day-wedding come true! Nothing could have added more romance to the day than the heavenly sounds flowing from your harp. You are incredibly accomplished – if only every bride could add the beauty you bring to their wedding! The professional talent and grace with which you play makes one feel almost magical to watch you! Thank you for the great effort you went to making my special day truly memorable for all.
With an ever grateful heart, Danielle N.
"It was a great pleasure for us to have Brie perform at our daughter’s wedding. The music was fantastic and the harp set an elegant tone for the evening from the start. Brie has a unique gift to play the harp and is willing to take on a vast array of songs. She was very accommodating and was a complete joy to work with. I give her my highest recommendation."

"I cannot say enough good things about Brieta and our experience using her for music at my daughter's wedding. We met with her to choose selections and she could play anything that a harp would play! My daughter had a specific request for a piece she used to play on piano as a teen. Brieta said no problem!! She is a perfectionist and very professional. The music was just amazing and set a beautiful tone for an elegant wedding. Brieta is very talented and I would highly recommend her to anyone who would like beautiful music!!"
Mrs. Kellie C.

"I had the joy of having Brie play the harp at my wedding ceremony. She was so kind, patient, and thoughtful while she worked with us beforehand and while she played for us on our special day. Her music made our ceremony beautiful and special. It was such a pleasure working with her. If you are looking for a harpist for a special event, I would highly recommend her!"

I have known Brie Allison for several years, and every time I have asked her to play the harp for a dinner, Christmas event, or wedding, she has done a beautiful job and brought such class to it! She is very professional, very gifted, and so easy to work with. She adds that something extra! -Beth B.
Brie, Thank you so much for your participation in Artwalk! We really enjoyed your music and would love to have you play again. We were so pleased with the turnout! You are a very talented lady (as well as a beautiful and graceful lady, too!). Thank you for sharing your time and talents. We look forward to seeing you and hearing your beautiful music again in the near future! Sincerely, Toni V.
"Brie played the harp at one of my best friend's wedding and I sang with her on one of the songs. She was so helpful in working with me to find the song in the right key for my voice and practicing with me beforehand. She was so professional and sweet, was early to everything (despite her air conditioner going out in the middle of June) and is just a phenomenal harpist! She can play ANYTHING. If you are looking for something unique for your wedding or special event, Brie is your girl."
We had a backyard wedding and Brie was the one who made it seem so real, so very special. She is such an amazing person to work with!! She is so thoughtful and patient, she really listens to what you are wanting. She can play just about anything on her harp, from the classics to rock. All my guests just raved of delight on her performance. She made my day perfect!! -Tami
If you are looking for a harpist for a special event, look no longer, you have found an excellent one! After listening to Brieta play at several special events I have nothing but praise for her beautiful playing and lovely repetorie. In addition to that she is so lovely and pleasant, simply a joy to get to know! I would not hesitate to reccomend her to the most discriminating! --Patricia
Brie has played for receptions and events at Longview Museum of Fine Arts and added such a quality dimension to the atmosphere. Her playing is relaxing, inspiring and beautiful. She's a wonderful person to work with and a professional musician in every way. --Renee Hawkins, LMFA Director
We received the most amazing gift of having Brie play at my daughter's wedding recently. Not only was Brie extremely professional but very patient with some major changes that took place in the last couple of months before the wedding. She was great about listening to what my daughter wanted and then offering ideas and suggestions when we asked. Even with Brie's seemingly endless list of music in her repertoire, she was more than willing to learn a couple of new pieces that we asked for and no one could have guessed that she had learned them so recently. Brie adapted a song that was very special to my daughter, originally planned to be played on the piano. As I watched my daughter walk down the aisle to this beautiful adaptation on the harp, it made the moment even more unforgettable. Brie truly has a God given musical ability and this combined with her heart and attitude make her a blessing to work with. Anyone looking for a beautiful addition to their wedding should look no further. Brie receives my highest recommendation and gratitude for her incredible gift! Mrs. Jamie M.
Brie did such a wonderful job at my wedding....she is very professional and very sweet. It has always been my dream to have a harpist play at my wedding and she did an amazing job!!! Thanks again Brie. Jennifer Hand - Kilgore, Texas
Mrs. Allison is an excellent harpist and piano teacher. I have heard her perform the harp at weddings, and her quality is superb. I have observed her piano teaching, and she is patient and interactive with her students, helping them learn thoroughly and well. I would highly recommend her services to anyone! --Kara L.
