• Alabama Church Concert Harpist

  • Music is a universal language. It has the ability to calm our spirits or lighten our moods. Sometimes music uses words but often it offers the comfort we seek using melodious melodies only. Many people have never had the opportunity of seeing the harp up close and personal. They have never had a chance to understand how it is played. Marie enjoys playing mini concerts for church services. She enjoys sharing with her audiences many interesting facts about this instrument as well as telling how God brought the harp into her life.

    Marie maintains her belief that the harp is God’s choice of musical instruments. After all, David played the harp and he was “a man after God’s own heart”. Marie considers this type program to be a big part of her ministry. Usually this type of service is selected for a Sunday evening service. It is more relaxed and audiences feel comfortable asking questions at the end of the program.

  • It has been my great honor to have Marie Barnes on three different occasions to play for our senior adults. Each time she blessed us with her musical ability but more importantly, God used her to speak to our spiritual needs. Much like David of Olde, her harp brings a calm and relaxing atmosphere across the room.

    In addition, Marie is very Christlike in her attitude and not demanding at all with her needs. If you are looking for a great experience for your senior adults that includes both beautiful instrumental music and worship, I highly recommend Marie Barnes to you.
