Applause

Krista Strader is one of the top harpists in the world... her playing was nothing less than angelic.

~Concert review by Christopher Key, Entertainment News Northwest


There are some fine musicians among the group, as the soloists showed. Especially good were harpist Krista Strader... on the theme "Tema Per Violoncello Ed Arpa"

~The Sacramento Bee, in review of the Sacramento Metropolitan Orchestra's performance of Ginastera's "Variaciones Concertantes"


Krista Strader is truly an exceptional musician. We have utilized Krista's abilities as a virtuosic solo harpist in the concert hall and as part of our ensemble. The response is always overwhelming from the audience. Krista communicates with her audience. Her great talents, combined with a strong work ethic, make Krista indispensable for everything from concerts, grand affairs, intimate weddings and events of every shape and size. Our association with many skilled musicians has given us the perspective that Krista Strader, harpist, is simply the best!
