I want to thank you for the lovely job you did for us at St. Clement's by-the-Sea. I'm still getting wonderful comments from the congregants and choir members of how much they enjoyed your playing during the service. In particular, people really loved your solo on "What Child is This?"
Thank you and all the best.

Tomoko graced our Nutcracker Ball during the cocktail and dinner hours. She played pieces from Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker ballet music and many other Holiday and popular selections. I have received an overwhelming response to her beautiful playing and repertoire. Beautiful, Elegant, incredible, delightful, and fun......just a few adjectives that described Newcomer's Nutcracker Ball. Tomoko Sato did a marvelous performance!

Thank you for our recent partnership for the 360/Altec program at the St. Regis. Wow! Your performance was amazing and your location under the Gazebo on the Grand Lawn was beautiful! Your song selection was perfect!!
The client loved the evening and you were a big part of the success for 360. As always, a wonderful performance! We are very appreciative.

The 60th Birthday party we have for my wife would not have been the same if not for the pleasant sound of the harp being played by Tomoko. The celebrant really liked the classical selection, the order in which the repertoire was played, and the volume of the sound that was appropriate for the size of the banquet room. The sound of the harp playing in the background while having conversation with the guests exudes a vibrant atmosphere. Thank you Tomoko for sharing your talent with us!

Tomoko's music was the icing on the cake for our event! The atmosphere she created was top of the class! Our event was a formal occasion and I needed a bit of sophistication to make the night unforgettable. Tomoko's music did just that! Her range in genres spoke to all ages in attendance. I highly recommend her talents. Please do yourself a favor and hire her for your event!

Tomoko is a consumate professional. I have hired her twice, and both times, she was very punctual, was careful to follow our playlist wishes, and dazzled our guests. I recommend her without hesitation.

She is talented, professional, thoughtful, and whatever the opposite of diva is, LOL. She played the harp at my wedding last year and did an amazing job-- we all loved her. The music set the mood-- it was so romantic!!! And even though my wedding venue was very small, the harp (and Tomoko!) were completely unobtrusive.
I couldn't recommend any musician more highly.

I also wanted to apologize for the delay that day. Other than that thanks again I will most likely see you again. You brought nothing but joy to our hearts.

This is a very belated note to thank you for your beautiful performance at our wedding. The music
was even better than we had imagined, and your rendition of Ave Maria nearly brought tears to our
eyes. Thank you so much for your hard work, responsiveness and professionalism throughout the
planning process. You made everything so easy, it was one less thing to worry about on our wedding day. Your beautiful music made our ceremony so special, and we will never forget it. If there is any way we can purchase a CD with the songs you played at our wedding, please let us know. Thank you again, and please feel free to always use us as a reference.

I just wanted to send a quick email to thank you for playing at my wedding at Coyote Hills on
October 2. You did a phenomenal job. All of the music was beautiful and really helped set the tone for the ceremony. Everyone commented that you did such a nice job and that they enjoyed the music.
Thank you again and we will happily refer you to our friends as they get married!
