Wedding Ceremony and Reception
One of the greatest services Joanna provides and one of Joanna’s greatest joys is to play the harp for people’s Weddings in Toronto and the GTA
Because of the versatility of the styles Joanna has mastered (some people say that hiring Joanna is like hiring several musicians – Classical- Jazz- Pop- Rock) quite often Joanna will play for all parts of a Wedding – Ceremony, Cocktails and Dinner.
The harp is such a beautiful and elegant addition to any Wedding. Sometimes the guys don’t relate to the feminine aspects of the harp and the kind of music associated with the harp so much. That is why Joanna’s song choices are the perfect fit for everyone. It is so wonderful to see the reaction people have when they hear styles of music they love and relate to being played on the harp that they never imagined could be possible and that all age groups and types of people relate to.
It’s not just by chance that Joanna Jordan is selected to play the harp at events where the music makes a difference. Joanna’s music is presented with elegance, authenticity and excitement in such a way that you and your guests will definitely notice.

Have you ever been to an event that could have been so much better if the organizer had paid a bit more attention to music and the musicians?
You probably have. That’s why, if you’re planning an important event, you probably want to find adaptable, talented, reliable, professional musicians who could help make your event an incredible, memorable success.
And if you’re like most hosts and organizers, you’d like to find this person without too much time, research, or stress. That’s where I come in.
If you need more than an average musician…
As a musical director, I do several things that you might not expect from your average musician – things that I’ve learned from experience that are necessary to ensure the best possible event.
For example, I offer:
- A surprisingly diverse repertoire of genres ( I play everything from Classics to Classic Rock; Diana Krall to the Doors, Sinatra to Sting, Handel to Hendrix…you’ve got to hear it!!)
- Use of the Acoustic Pedal Harp, Celtic Harp, and Electric Harp (The right instrument means the right audibility, clarity, and sound for your event!)
- Customized sound systems (This way, I can create a musical environment that showcases the harp’s natural sound and enhances the ambiance of your event.)
My personal promise– and a legally binding contract –stating that I’ll be at your event, on time and well-prepared
With nearly twenty years of experience performing for some of the grandest audiences (Carnegie Hall and the Royal Family are just two examples), I specialize in customized performances that are tailored to the unique details of your event.
“You’re still original Joanna. Bermuda misses you. I wish I had an event to bring you back to play and blow away the audience. Keep up the great work and creative approach to playing a harp!”
Suzie Pewter, President, The Whitfield Group Ltd.
“In the 17 years that I have been Stage Manager, Joanna Jordan’s concert was one of the best harp concerts I have ever seen here.”
Dennis O’Connell, CARNEGIE HALL
“…the classical excursions are a model of technical elegance as she (Jordan) works cross-over elements in music with suave versatility.”
Geoff Chapman, THE TORONTO STAR
“The sound of the Electric Harp is phenomenal—and the album CLAZZIC brings together a wide variety of music giving it all a new face–Joanna’s approach to the Prokofiev C Major Prelude is exquisite”
Michael Lyons, Music Director/Program Host THE NEW CLASSICAL 96.FM TORONTO
“Others may be acceptable…but CLAZZ is exceptional!”
Charmaine Godden, Publicity and Special Events Coordinator, HOLT RENFREW
“To entertain entertainers well is an art form that requires extraordinary intuition and the highest of musical standards. CLAZZ has gained our confidence by demonstrating this rare combination repeatedly and superbly, in a variety of situations.”
Lynda Friendly, Senior VP, Marketing & Communications, CINEPLEX ODEAN CORPORATION
“Just having a coffee and reflecting on last night’s party and thinking how much you added to our Holiday Party. So many people came up to me throughout the evening to tell me how much they enjoyed hearing you play. Joanna – you were simply amazing!”
Laura W, Corporate Client
“Thank you SO much for such an incredible performance at PROM. Hiring you was one of the best decisions that we made for the party! Our guests are still raving about how much they enjoyed your music. “It was such a pleasure to meet you and your husband, and I hope I have the opportunity to work with you again. And, to hear you play on Ellen Degeneres.”
Ann Whittall, ROM Governers (Royal Ontario Museum)
“I loved having you perform at both the trade show and the Star Awards Gala. You are a truly unique and exciting performer, and I know that you impressed and amazed a lot of people.”
Mark Wyatt, Show Producer, Canadian Special Events
In fact, very often, people tell me that “I never knew the harp could sound like that. Our guests were so impressed and could not stop talking about you!” Please check out our sound samples by event type or genre.
You may be even more surprised to hear that I get the same reaction from all kinds of people: different age groups, both men and women, ethnic groups, and more.
The musicians and the music you choose can make or break your event.
All my expertise is directed towards creating the ideal performance for you, so you won’t have to worry about the music before, during, or after your event.
Now, it’s true that because of the extra level of service I provide, my fees may be higher than some of the quotes you’re used to getting.
Wishing you an extraordinary event,
P.S. Whether you hire me or not, I’m happy to help you make your event a complete success. So please feel free to give me a call. I’d be happy to help you any way I can.
Have you ever been to a Simcha and the music was way too loud and it was impossible to hear yourself think, let alone hear the person beside you?
For many of your guests this results in a frustrating experience rather than the joyous occasion it was meant to be. Many guests can’t wait to leave.
My objective when I play music for Simchas is to create an atmosphere which is elegant, fun and upbeat. I play music that all ages can relate to as well as pleasingly audible without blowing your ears out.
Wouldn’t it be nice to talk to the people across the table as well as honor the older guests that are there to kvell and have a wonderful time.
