Harpist Michelle Sell – San Francisco

Harpist Michelle Sell

Periodically we’ll feature one of our properties here to let our readers know about some great gay friendly places to stay:

Michelle is a professional San Francisco Bay Area harpist who has been performing for 36 years! She toured with Frank Sinatra, Sr., Linda Ronstadt, and most recently she toured with Broadway’s Tony Award winning production of South Pacific.

Michelle has appeared on The Tonight Show, Good Morning America, and The Rosie O’Donnell Show. She has even played concerts for the King & Queen of Thailand, Prince Alexander & Princess Katherine of Serbia, President Jimmy Carter, Francis Ford Coppola, to name a few.

An album with Linda Ronstadt, “Dedicated to the One I Love”, won a Grammy award for Best Children’s Album. She can also be heard on “Home For the Holidays”, recorded with the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus, on The Temptations CD, “Kiss Me Like You Missed Me,” as well as in many movie scores, recorded at Skywalker Ranch, including “Jurassic Park III.”

Other vocalists that she has performed with include:

  • Betty Carter
  • Count Basie
  • Sarah Vaughn
  • Henry Mancini
  • Josh Groban
  • Nelson Riddle
  • Sammy Davis, Jr.
  • Bernadette Peters
  • Liza Minelli
  • Frank Sinatra, Sr.
  • Steve Lawrence and Edyie Gorme
  • Juliet Prowse
  • Ray Charles
  • Melissa Manchester
  • Mary Chapin Carpenter
  • Crystal Gayle
  • Loretta Lynn
  • Michael McDonald
  • Eartha Kitt
  • Burt Bacharach
  • Aaron Neville
  • Dianne Reeves
  • Stevie Nicks
  • Sheryl Crow
  • Ferron
  • Joni Mitchell
  • Trisha Yearwood

Michelle is “over the moon” that same sex weddings are again legal in California. In 2008, Michelle played for two lesbian weddings and two gay male weddings and was thrilled to be a part of their special day! She can’t wait to have you contact her for your same sex wedding!

For weddings & private engagements, Michelle uses a Camac electro-acoustic harp. Every string on this harp has a pickup or small microphone. This enables the harp to be heard, clearly, in venues seating 500 people or, in contrast, at venues with few people, it is an intimate background instrument. Michelle believes that her clients are entitled to professionalism, punctuality, courtesy, and above all, the ability to hear the music for which they are paying. At large venues and at outdoor functions, a traditional acoustic harp may be difficult to hear if not amplified. There is no extra for using the Camac electro-acoustic harp and its amplification system.

Michelle is proud to have these quotes in the press:

“Michelle Sell’s harp stands out amongst a sea of…harpists!”
(Billboard Magazine)

“Heavenly harp! No musical theater score uses the harp more imaginatively than the orchestrations by Robert Russell Bennett for South Pacific. Harpist Michelle Sell is playing the glorious glissandos…”
(John Fleming, St. Petersburg Times Performing Arts Critic)

“Michelle, play or correct the arrangements any way that you like. I trust you completely…”
(Don Costa, Former arranger for Frank Sinatra, Sr.)

“Thank you for your performance of my music today.”
(Aaron Copland, Conductor/Composer)

“It is so wonderful to see you again and hear you playing my harp parts!”
(Nelson Riddle, Composer/Arranger)

If you’re looking for a wedding entertainer for your wedding day together, please give Michelle a call – she is thrilled to work with gay and lesbian couples.
