Cello for Weddings

Beautiful cello sound will transform any wedding, setting an elegant and inviting mood and deeply enhancing the moments within the ceremony with your favorite songs at all the right moments!

 

Choose the songs for your Processional, Entrances, and Recessional songs from my recorded playlist of my large repertoire of relaxing and elegant ceremony music in all genres. All the while, I will be here to help you in planning and make sure things will go beautifully on your very special day. 

 

You and yours can enjoy the truly unique musical experience and friendly, professional service I offer. I play in weddings all over the state of New Mexico and sometimes beyond. Recordings, pricing, and travel fees are below. 

Feel free to reach out to me if any questions about availability and pricing, songs I know, cocktail hour music, reservations, or anything else on your mind! 

Cello for Events

I will set an upbeat and fun mood, connecting with any crowd as I play a wide variety of genres!

 

I bring all of my own equipment including a chair, and my speaker runs on an internal battery, so there's no need to look for a power outlet. 

I play cello melodies with recorded accompaniments to bring a harmonically rich ensemble-like experience. (I create and arrange all of this in my studio, using a variety of real and synth instruments.)

So that I can play indoors and outdoors, in nature or in a building, my cello and accompaniments are amplified through the battery-powered speaker in the picture below. The pedal near my right foot allows me to smoothly fade accompaniments off while still playing the cello, for example, during wedding ceremonies!
