It was nice meeting you at the reception. You did a wonderful job in playing some beautiful music. My daughter was quite happy with the tunes you played for the night.
I was also glad to hear the history of the harp that you play. It was nice to listen to all the details of the harp. My friend who is an electronics buff like me, enjoyed talking to you.
If I come across anyone interested in your services I will let you know.
Thanks so much, we love your music!

In the program calendar of the German-American Institute there was hidden under the title "Featuring American Musical Popular Composers" a small pearl: a solo Harp Concert by Cynthia Schultz from Edina, Minnesota...........
Cynthia 's harp sounded almost like a trusty zither. If one closed their eyes, one could believe for a moment that they were hearing all of the music of the world - This musical "chamelion" made it possible...........
In her "West Side Story" medley, the virtuoso artist played the ballads of Lenny Bernstein. The energetic, enthusiastic song "I feel pretty" was the best of the group- Cynthia Schultz made the harp swing with her rendition of Gershwin s 'Fascinating Rhythm".
Thanks for being with us for our 50th wedding anniversary!
Your music is beautiful and it added so much to our celebration.
