Julie chooses from two harps for weddings and concert performances.  These harps are acoustic instruments, but fitted with transducer pick-ups to amplify as necessary.  This creates the best of both worlds:  providing music ranging from an intimate setting to a crowded ballroom.

Venus Aria - a concert grand pedal harp with 47 strings, ranging nearly seven octaves.  It has a natural blonde maple finish with Art Nouveau carvings on the column and base, depicting irises, lilies-of-the-valley, berries, and reed leaves.  The spruce soundboard has an intricate decal design with gold, scarlet, and amber leaves and berries.  This harp was built in 2000 by the W&W Musical Instrument Company in Chicago.

Venus Diplomat - another concert grand pedal harp with a dark red mahogany finish and fluted column, built in 1981 by W&W in Chicago.  Its spruce and maple hardwoods were cut from forests on Mount St. Helens in Washington...before the 1980 volcanic eruption!  This harp was rebuilt in 2014 by W&W, utilizing hardwoods from the Pacific Northwest to replace the soundboard, base and neck.  It has a Lyon & Healy 17 decal with golden bronzing highlights in the column's fluting, as well as on the base and neck, making this harp truly one-of-a-kind.
