About Heartfelt Harmonies

Alexandra Pond, 

Alexandra started playing piano at the age of 5 and her love for music has grown throughout the years. She studied piano at the Eastman School of Music's continuing education program while in high school and later went to SUNY Fredonia to pursue a degree in music education, where her primary instrument was piano. As music director at Lutheran Church of Our Saviour, she has performed at numerous weddings, both at the church and at local venues. She prides herself in working with couples to pick the perfect music for their ceremony or special occasion. Through her love of and dedication to music she will add a unique touch to your special day. Since Alexandra was unable to perform at her own wedding, she had the church's bell choir (which she normally directs) perform the music, along with Nichole on vocals. 

She lives in Spencerport with her husband, Andrew and yellow lab, Nessa. Alexandra also teaches piano lessons to all ages and has a small craft business, Notable Creations
