Hi, I’m Sonja! I’m a harp teacher by weekday and wedding harpist by weekend…on top of all my other passion projects, orchestral performances, and shenanigans. I love the variety of work I get to have as a professional harpist, whether that’s locally in San Antonio or traveling out-of-state! (OR out of country - YES PLEASE!)

On my (very few) days off, you can find me snuggled up watching a rom-com, restarting a crocheted scarf for the millionth time, or spending time at The Pearl with my fiancé, Patrick. 

Meet Sonja


Get to know me!

Sonja's Faves

A grande, hot caramel macchiato. (With a warm cheese danish, because why not!) 

My Starbucks Order


Sunshine Yellow! It’s bright, warm, and happy. Why can’t everything be yellow?

My Fav Color


Taco. Bell. With Mountain Dew and extra Fire Sauce, please! 

My Guilty Pleasure


It’s a tie between escape rooms and theme parks. What can I say, I’m an adrenaline junkie! 

My Fav Outing


I grew up as an Army brat living all over the US as well as overseas in The Netherlands. And as an adult, I spent about 7 months in India where I performed for a special event company. I’m always looking for an excuse to travel somewhere - whether it’s to perform or just vacation! 

Traveling is my Jam


People always ask me who my favorite band or artist is…and truth be told, there’s just too many favorites to choose from! That being said, I’m a huge fan of CELINE DION. What’s NOT to love about her? The voice…the power…the grace…the accent… 

My Fav Artist


Niccolette & Jacob, February 2020

“Sonja made my wedding ceremony so perfect! I didn’t have to worry about timing any of the music because she knew when to start and end depending on when my wedding party made it down the aisle! She also brought such a great vibe to our cocktail hour and everyone loved hearing her play. Highly recommend if you want to add another level of elegance to your wedding!”

"Another Level of Elegance"

“Sonja was such a pleasure to have with us on our special day! We wanted something a little different so we took a chance on having a harpist for our wedding ceremony and we were not disappointed! From the communication before the wedding, to the day of our event, Sonja was very professional and reliable through the whole process. She provided us with a list of songs in her repertoire and was very helpful in helping us select the exact songs we wanted her to play! Thank you, Sonja, for making our day that much better! Our guests were thrilled to listen to you play, not only during the ceremony but also during our reception! Thank you again for everything!!”

Brianna & Travis, October 2018

“Sonja played during my wedding ceremony. It was such a magical moment as she played while I walked down the aisle. She is very professional and made sure the processional went perfectly. She is talented and took the time to learn the songs I requested. She even played with two violinists with only last minute practice.”
