Cello for Weddings
3 Reviews | Albuquerque, NM
I am a Classically trained cellist with 25 years of experience and a diverse musical background. I offer solo cello, and accompanied cello where I play my customized accompaniments through a portable battery-powered speaker. The styles are, broadly, Traditional wedding music, Classical music, and classic songs from various decades. ........ The wedding ceremony package includes 30-45 minutes before the ceremony begins, during the ceremony, and 5-10 minutes after the ceremony. That's everything. :) So that my couples might walk down the aisle to their favorites, I will arrange two songs for solo cello, or one song for cello + piano. The cocktail hour add-on is an option while couples work with their photographer, and to set an atmosphere as guests mingle. Additional cello arrangements are available - solo cello or cello with piano, harp, marimba, string quartet, rock band, orchestra, or percussion group. I have a lot of options via MIDI technology. I love to travel! There is no charge for the Santa Fe Area, or anywhere within 70 miles of Albuquerque. ........ Samples of my music can be found through links on this page - primarily Facebook and my website. Working with me? It's easy and fun. While watching a YouTube playlist of my recordings, you can pick every song. Or, you can simply tell me what you want in general (eg. "popular songs and Classical music"), and I'll bring exactly that! I appreciate your interest in Cello for Weddings! Feel free to send me a message if you would like to know more about my services.
