Janelle Varnes has crafted her pictures in music since she was seven years old. From classical to Broadway, traditional to sacred, popular to oldies, Janelle’s dynamic range has granted her accolades from the most discerning of audiences. A classical musician trained by classical musicians, Janelle was privileged to spend nearly twenty years studying under Richard Fleisher of the Naples Philharmonic. Her musical prowess has led to frequent command performances for Walt Disney World Resort, accompaniments for Barry Manilow, numerous appearances with orchestras throughout the state of Florida and beyond.
When not dazzling audiences on stage, Janelle makes her talents available for hire to private audiences at weddings, banquets, church services, conventions, and other special events. Attuned to the harp’s soothing sound and healing qualities, Janelle regularly shares her musical gift at Hospice events. She has also donated her time in the Bronx housing projects of New York City. Using a specially designed scale harp, she delighted in donating her world-class talent to an audience normally unable to experience the sound of a live performance.
Janelle has appeared on stages across the state accompanying singers such as Johnny Mathis, Natalie Merchant and Kansas. Most recently Janelle joined composer Nobuo Uematsu and conductor Arnie Roth on stage in Miami, Florida for Distnat Worlds: music from Final Fantasy.
