I bring to my performances passion, experience, and the fruits of a world-class education

For over 30 years, I have been providing harp music for weddings and other special events. With a Master’s Degree in Harp Performance from the University of Michigan, I have enjoyed performing in many diverse venues from concert halls to open air markets and from churches to backyard weddings.  One time, while living in Costa Rica, I even played for a gathering of first ladies including Barbara Bush!

I pride myself on being flexible, professional, and I celebrate diversity!

For many years I performed as principal harpist of both the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra and the Flint Symphony Orchestra. In addition, I spent eight years living in Central America where I was principal harpist of the National Symphony Orchestra of Costa Rica. I speak both English and Spanish fluently. 

What others have said about me...

"Deborah Gabrion was THE best addition to my baby shower. She played  beautifully and her selection of music was perfect. I HIGHLY recommend  her for your special event. I will most definitely be hiring her again  in the future. She looked great, was very professional and a very sweet  lady."

"Deborah has played at a charity event that I host, for the past three years.  The music is exquisite and her mannerism is very professional. My guests  thoroughly enjoyed her music. I highly recommend her."

"I came to know Deborah as a professional harpist and appreciate working  with her because she is the consummate  professional in all aspects of her work. Whether I book her via the  phone or email she always responds  in a timely and professional manner.  Whether the booking be for a  Mother’s Day event, Valentine’s Day Dinner, or a corporate baby shower,  she always arrives early and eager to work with us to help make sure that  our events go very smoothly. I also have to  commend her for the professional appearance she portrays when on site at  our community. I can always trust that she will  show up well groomed  and well dressed for the occasion. And I would be remiss if I did not  mention the beautiful harp music that she has  added to a variety of events for us! She is the best and I look  forward to working with her on future special events."
