Wedding Harpist Kathryn Rees
Whether you’re planning a wedding, cocktail evening, office party, art gallery event or celebration dinner, let the harp's beautiful sound and Kathryn’s effortless playing make your occasion truly unforgettable.
Kathryn was inspired to play the harp at the age of ten and went on to become a National Eisteddfod winner in both solo and ensemble competitions, a finalist in the Rotary Club's Young Musician of the Year, and winner of the Texaco Young Musician of Wales award.
She has performed as a soloist at the Royal Albert Hall, The Royal Festival Hall and the Houses of Parliament, and recorded for local and national television and radio programs. She is Harpist in Residence for Cor Meibion De Cymru – a role specially created for her – and has accompanied artists such as Dame Shirley Bassey, Charlotte Church and Katherine Jenkins.
Whether performing for an intimate dinner, a solo recital, or a gala ball she charms audiences, adapting and personalising her performances to suit each occasion. She has a wide-ranging and exciting repertoire which varies from classical to jazz, Beethoven to Beyonce, Mozart to Metallica!
