Hi there, my name is Christina Thomas and I play the harp at weddings and events. If Virginia isn’t home, it may be helpful to know that “RVA” stands for “Richmond, VA.” I’ve called Richmond, Virginia home for the last decade and absolutely love its sense of community. If you are interested in hiring me to play at your next event, here is more information about my background as a harpist:
I began harp lessons at the age of 12 with Gloria Galante in Philadelphia, PA after several years of piano lessons. Playing the harp felt like second nature to me and I started to progress quickly. I won the music scholarship for my high school and performed in a variety of harp ensembles, recitals, concerts, orchestras, etc. I also began to play the harp at weddings and cocktail hours in the Philadelphia area during this time and fell in love with the enchanting experience of providing music for such a special occasion.
After receiving my degree in Business Management at Penn State University, I moved to Richmond to begin my career in corporate Human Resources. During this time, I took a break from performing to focus on my career but it always felt like a part of me was missing.
In 2018 I made the commitment to myself to make the harp a priority in my life once again. It has been so fulfilling for me to rebuild my skills and get back out there as a professional harpist, this time in the Richmond, VA area.
For the last three years I’ve performed at various events in Richmond and the surrounding area including wedding ceremonies, elopements, cocktail hours, and other special events. Event experience ranges in size from intimate outdoor gatherings to expansive ballrooms. I work with clients to customize the musical experience to align with their unique event style.
