Ms. Marilyn Wienand holds a Bachelor of Music in Organ, a Masters and Doctorate in Voice and has taught music on the college level for many years. She has been an organist and choirmaster of several churches. She performs widely in North Carolina with church orchestras, for weddings, receptions, parties and other events.

Ms. Wienand specializes in providing harp music for weddings, bringing expertise, elegance and musical flow to the wedding ceremony.  She will provide a customized musical program for a ceremony, reception, rehearsal dinner or other wedding related event in a style of your choice--classical, jazz, pop, Irish Celtic.

In 1995 Ms. Wienand began playing the harp for people in hospice, hospital and nursing homes. She played original music that had been composed by her late husband, Karl, specifically for these therapeutic situations.  Marilyn has always been interested in healing, and the harp was a natural for her to use in her healing work with people who are ill or dying. People seem to receive a real blessing from her music.  When she played the harp for hospice patients she saw amazing benefits, such as a group of Alzheimer patients becoming quiet and calm, and a very old man in a coma becoming conscious for a few hours in order to tell his family goodbye.

I just had to write you and let you know how wonderful I thought your playing at my daughter's wedding was. Everyone that I have talked with said it was so magical and the sound of the harp just set the mood. It was absolutely beautiful. You helped make the wedding that my daughter has always dreamed of and for that I just say "Thank you and God bless."
