Kathryn Cater, Harpist Composer, Harprose.comI am a “Background Music Specialist”, always glad to bring the perfect ambiance to special occasions.  With over 15 years experience performing dinner music in restaurants, I know how to set the perfect backdrop for pleasant conversation.

People often tell me they loved the variety of music, and enjoyed naming the pieces. Sometimes I hear people singing along. I love this!

“What do you charge?”

I do not post my fees online for a variety of reasons, but as a general rule my fee is going to be somewhere between $150 and $250, depending on the length of time required.

Discounts may be applied for senior care facilities or multiple bookings in the same calendar year. Please email me for more information.

I am willing to add up to 3 new songs to my repertoire for your event provided I have at least a week to prepare and the piece is well suited for my instrument. I do not charge for this, but if I have to purchase the music I will ask to be reimbursed.

I do not charge extra for mileage unless your location is more than an hour’s drive from the Mt Angel area.

I am willing to travel to further locations for a small mileage fee. This would include: Corvallis, Eugene, Hood River, The Dalles, and other locations within a two hour drive from the Mt Angel area.
