About Us


Praise the Lord with the Harp!

Celestial Strings is the music ministry of Rev. William and Susan Reister of Our Redeemer Lutheran Church (LCMS) in Jacksonville, Florida. Pastor Bill plays the harp for dozens of events each year throughout the Southeast. He plays the harp to God's glory at weddings, worship services, community events, dinners, programs, funerals, memorial services, birthday and anniversary parties, grand openings, baby and bridal showers, cocktail hours and receptions, and many other social events. He often provides vocal music with harp or piano accompaniment. Susan plays the organ, piano, or synthesizer and together they also provide inspirational and educational programs for all ages.


Harp music is an ideal choice for your special event. It is elegant to see and hear at a wedding or other formal occasion. The harp provides peaceful and easy-listening music which allows comfortable conversation at a dinner party or reception. The harp is frequently mentioned in the Bible and is the ideal choice for a worship service, inspirational event, or memorial occasion. The harp is portable and is a great option for a beach wedding or an indoor event in a small space. We provide amplification for all of our events including outdoor celebrations.


Thank You

We love providing music for sacred and secular occasions and offer classical, sacred, traditional, Celtic, and popular selections. We also are happy to learn new songs if appropriate printed music is available and if we are given ample time to learn the songs. One of our favorite sayings is, "So much great little time!"  What would life be without music? We thank the Lord who is the Chief Musician.
