Weddings and Special Occasions

The harp is a lovely compliment to any wedding. Nella has played in dozens of venues throughout the metro Atlanta area and can provide the perfect music for your wedding.

Her vast experience playing for weddings will insure every bride that she is putting her trust in a musician who will provide beautiful music and who will uphold the highest standards of professionalism.

For weddings, Nella plays the Lyon & Healy acoustic concert grand harp. Standing at over 6 feet tall, it also adds visual beauty to your wedding setting. For outside weddings, she plays her large Celtic harp. With a five octave range and five feet tall, it is also a beautiful compliment to your wedding.

If amplification should ever be required, Nella has an amplifier with inside pick up mic, which will unobtrusively give you all the volume needed.

For music selections, please refer to the “repertoire” section below. Although extensive, it is far from a complete listing of Ms. Rigell's entire repertoire. If you do not see the music you are looking for, please ask.
