Having been married for over three years myself I look back at our wedding day and still remember how much time we spent painstakingly selecting the music for our ceremony. So often I find myself experiencing life like mini movie trailers... dramatic entrances and exits, cuts and fades in and out of scenes and the score... it rivals the greatest of love stories and action movies. There are many talented musicians in Northern Michigan that will transform your wedding into the vision you have always wanted however today I want to highlight one of the most accomplished harpists in the country, who also happens to be a resident of Traverse City... Sylvia Norris. I first met her years ago and have been captivated by her musical talent an humility. Available for ceremonies, cocktail hours and receptions Sylvia's ability to transform a room into an elegant affair is as easy as filling a house with the sweet smell of the apple pie that is baking in the oven.
Working with Sylvia is a treat for any couple planning a wedding. She will help you navigate the music selections for your big day with ease and guidance. Recommending pieces that compliment/enhance your personal tastes she is available as a solo artists or with an ensemble.
A bit of her accomplishments... "A Michigan native, she has long been a member of the Battle Creek, and Traverse Symphony Orchestras, played for 17 years with the Grand Rapids Symphony and is currently principal harpist with the West Shore Symphony Orchestra. Sylvia has appeared with the Detroit Symphony as well as every other Michigan orchestra of note. In recent years, she has been a featured performer on the Regent Seven Seas Cruise Line, performing as a solo harpist and as a featured headliner with her husband, baritone, Jeffery Norris and her daughters, Hayley and Emma. In 2005, she was chosen to tour with Josh Groban to Bermuda where she was privileged to also appear in recital with legendary flutist, Sir James Galway."
