Brian was simply amazing! I cannot express how happy I am we chose him for our wedding ceremony and reception dinner music. My only regret is that in all the chaos, we never actually got to meet in person!! Regardless, he is simply superb. He is an excellent musician with beautiful stylings. He even went as far as to compose a modern piece of music for the solo cello (and trio) just for our wedding. He was always a pleasure to communicate with through our countless email exchanges. He's very professional, intelligent, creative and fun! I would recommend him to anyone planning a special event as he will certainly not disappoint. It was a little scary to blindly pick a musician (I live 1000 miles from my wedding location), but Brian turned out to be one of the best selections - and most memorable- that I made. Thank you, Brian, for you service, your talent, and your friendship through this process. I will never forget it.

Brian- thank you again for helping to make Curts' and my wedding day so perfect and special! The music was beautiful and just what we were looking for.

Brian was one of our easiest vendors to work with - he provided samples of his music and worked with us all the way through the process. He developed our recessional for us based on a song that we provided to him and that he customized in his own unique way.

Brian was an easy choice for us for our wedding ceremony. We love the sound of the cello. Seeing as how our ceremony was to be outdoors Brian recommended we add a violin to the performance and he was right... we definitely needed it. Brian worked with us on music choice and even worked with a wedding guest of ours to accompany her during a singing performance during the ceremony. Overall, I would recommend the Adirondack Cellist to anyone wishing to add a touch of class and elegance to their event.

So glad I chose the Adirondack cellist! I had a full Catholic mass for my ceremony and he learned several hymns that I requested he play! Beautiful playing, thank you!

I honestly can't recommend Brian enough. We hired him to play at our wedding. Leading up to the event, he was extremely responsive, professional, and wonderful to work with. At the wedding, we gave him carte blanche to play what he wanted during both the ceremony and dinner. He did not disappoint and honestly made an already special event even more special.

We couldn't be happier with Brian and Alyson. They were a wonderful touch to our ceremony. They are extremely talented and everyone enjoyed the music they played.

Brian did a wonderful job playing the ceremony music for our wedding at lake placid lodge. He is very talented and everything went exactly how we wanted it to. He was able to play less traditional music that we requested. I unfortunately didn't have an opportunity to speak with him at the wedding but he was always very responsive leading up to it. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a cellist.

Great to work with. Very flexible with what we asked for our wedding. Provided great feedback with songs we were thinking about playing.

Brian was extremely professional and polite as well as talented. I booked him for a small event at a community here and we will definitely have him back!

My husband and I hired The Adirondack Cellist for our wedding this past October. Brian was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was incredibly responsive, gave great suggestions and rocked it the day of our wedding. Thank you to Brian and his team for adding so much to our special day.

I can't even describe to you how beautiful they sounded. We had the cello (Brian) and violin duo for our ceremony on 10/7/16. The only thing I wish we had done differently was keep them around for cocktail hour so I could hear them and enjoy them longer. They kept their composure, were very professional and never got distracted even with a screaming flower girl being wheeled around them. Brian was a pleasure to work with, fast responding and played any of my special requests. I can't speak highly enough of them!

Beautiful for church or cocktail hour - excellent musicians

Brian was wonderful to work with. I asked him to create a custom piece for me and he did a wonderful job! He made my wedding day a memorable event. I highly, highly recommend him.

Brian was great, we didn't know a whole lot about what types of music would sound great on a cello, but he did a great job walking us through what would be appropriate for the ceremony. We also simply gave him free reign for cocktail hour music and he did a wonderful job with both our ceremony and our cocktail hour!

Brian was a pleasure to work with while planning our wedding. He was responsive and very helpful with figuring out the logistics needed to have an outdoor wedding while he remained indoors to keep his instrument and equipment safe from the VT winter. His music was top-notch; we've received many compliments about his talent since the wedding. Thank you for everything, Brian!

The Adirondack Cellist is awesome! Very professional and great personality. The Adirondack Cellist really made our wedding complete and we highly recommend him!

The music was absolutely phenomenal and provided the perfect setting for not only the wedding but also the reception dinner. One of our favorite moments is having a video with the music in the background. They absolutely made the event more than any other vender.

if you're on the fence about hiring a musician for your wedding ceremony, all I can say is...DO IT! We hired the Adirondack Cellist to play during our ceremony and cocktail hour and we are so thankful that we did. Brian of the Adirondack Cellist is a true professional--responsive and flexible. My husband and I are big Game of Thrones fans and upon our request, Brian learned the theme song to the tv show and played it during our wedding. It was a huge hit with our guests and we couldn't be happier with the services we received.

Despite the chilly day Brian played excellently! I never got to meet him unfortunately but he was very professional from everything I heard from others. He came in picked where he was going to play, set up, played beautifully. I loved all the pieces he picked, I didn't pick any specific songs except the recessional and the wedding march but he picked pieces that fit the mood and crowd perfectly. Communication before the wedding was great! I would definitely recommend him!
Allysa · Married on 10/03/2015
Brian was amazing! Very professional and easy to get in touch with regarding requests or questions we had. Everyone raved at how beautiful our ceremony turned out. We were lucky to have him as part of our day!

I was married at The Whiteface Lodge in Lake Placid, NY. Brian was SUCH a pleasure to work with. I didn't know much about what I wanted at first, but Brian was very helpful and gave me a bunch of great ideas and piece of mind about the whole selection process. He played with a violinist, and the music was just so beautiful. He is truly talented. He showed up on time and was very professional (but fun!) to work with. I would recommend him to anyone. Thanks Brian!
