Alexia Prince - Harpist

This harpist graduated from the University of Huddersfield with an Upper Second Degree in Music, having previously studied Piano at Trinity College of Music, in London. Since her graduation she has been in demand as a harpist, performing all over the country: on the television, for royalty, MP's, and even rock stars.

Previous engagements include providing music at a drinks reception for HRH Queen Elizabeth II on her visit to the University of Huddersfield, at the new London Venue King's Place for their corporate opening ceremony, on Channel 4's television series Come Dine With Me, and for a party hosted by rock band The Cure.

In 2004 she performed with the Brighton Youth Orchestra at Glyndebourne Opera House, and at the Brighton Dome in a concert featuring Evelyn Glennie. During her time at Huddersfield she performed regularly with the orchestra, symphonic wind orchestra and new music ensemble, with whom she performed a concert as part of the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival and which was subsequently broadcast on BBC Radio 3. She performed again for the festival in 2007, in an ensemble of 20 harpists, including Rhodri Davies and Eira Lynne Jones. She has also performed regularly with the Worthing Philharmonic Orchestra.

This harpist is available for hire for all kinds of functions. She has played for weddings and other events in churches, castles, stately homes, museums, colleges and universities and even a spa. Her varied repertoire ranges from classical and folk to more popular pieces and jazz.

Alexia Prince - Harpist Feedback

This Act's Average Star Rating

I'm so sorry that I didn't get a chance to come and speak to you but I never got a moment to do so. Meanwhile I want to know how much I personally enjoyed your playing, and many of the guests remarked similarly too. The harp is such a beautifully relaxing instrument, just the thing that many of our members needed to soothe them after what probably had been a very pressurised and fraught day. It has been gratifying to read the thank yous and the compliments from the attendees and you definitely played a significant part in making the event the success that it undoubtedly was

I am so sorry that I did not manage to speak to you yesterday to express my gratitude to you. I want to thank you so much for making my mum’s funeral so very special yesterday with your beautiful Harp playing. The music choices were also perfect.

Sarah, Shoreham Methodist Church

Alexandra was brilliant! She arrived on time, set up and played everything so beautifully. I've never seen a harpist get a standing ovation before but everyone loved her music so much at our wedding that she did receive one. It really added a touch of class and when my bride was walking down the aisle the music sounded as beautiful as she looked. Perfect in every way, thanks so much!!
