Soft & Consoling Harp Music
The angelic and gentle tones of the most spiritual musical instrument: The Harp, create the perfect background music for funeral visitations and religious services.
Judy Seghers BM MM (’90 in concert harp performance) offers her musical skills for funerals. A harpist since the age of 9, and a professional performer since the 1980s, she is Catholic and a 5th generation New Orleanian. Judy is one of the few local professional harpists whose schedule is dedicated strictly to performing, and as such, is usually available “in short notice”. Her extensive music repertoire includes all the standard hymns i.e.: Ave Maria, On Eagle’s Wings, Be Not Afraid, Amazing Grace, How Great Thou Art, etc., and Classical selections including Clair de Lune, Canon in D, Liebestraum, Saint-Saens The Swan, and 100s of other well-known favorites .
Judy began her music career in 7th grade as organist for the school Masses while she attended St. Rita grade school. She has performed in numerous churches of (just about) every denomination in the N. O. area, accompanied vocalists (including celebrities and opera singers) and other instrumentalists, and has performed multi-year solo contract engagements for hotels and restaurants on south & north shores.
