About
Hello!

I'm a professional cellist, based in Brooklyn, New York City. I offer my experience, talent, joy for music, and professionalism - I'd love to bring my music to your next event or concert. Check out reviews of past events and read on to find out more about me and the music I provide!

As a concert performer, I've played with Boston Ballet, and have played many recitals in New York, New England, and Thailand. I've also appeared on MTV and Sirius Radio with the band, 30 Seconds to Mars.

I've played for over 100 weddings and other events, and I would love create the perfect set of music for yours. I offer solo cello, as well ensembles: cello with piano, string trio, and string quartet, all with some of the best musicians in the city.

Solo cello is a first choice of many because it creates a wonderful, warm, intimate atmosphere. The cello is the instrument closest to the human voice.

In terms of selections, I'm very flexible - you can choose anything from light classical to contemporary pop to folk to classic jazz.

Here are some examples, to give you an idea of what is possible:

CONTEMPORARY:

- 1000 Years (Christina Perri)
- Viva La Vida (Cold Play)
- All of Me (John Legend)
- Call Me Maybe (Carly Rae Jepsen)
- I'm Yours (Jason Mraz)

CLASSIC:

- Somewhere Over the Rainbow (Harold Arlen - Judy Garland)
- Moon River (Henry Mancini)
- You Are So Beautiful (Billy Preston)
- Make You Feel My Love (Bob Dylan - Adele)
- Music of the Night (Andrew Lloyd Webber)
- What a Wonderful World (Bob Thiele - Louis Armstrong)
- Songs by the Beatles

CLASSICAL:

- Suite No. 1 (Johann Sebastian Bach)
- Spring (Antonio Vivaldi)
- Water Music (George Handel)
- Canon (Johann Pachelbel)
- Themes from the symphonies of Joseph Haydn

OTHER:

- River Flows In You (Yiruma)
- American fiddle tunes
- Tango music
- Other classical selections

I'm always happy to take requests and discuss possibilities, so feel free to get in contact with me.

Best,

Nick Dinnerstein

Nick was kind to come down to Cape Cod and play at my wedding. We had song requests for the ceremony [Good Feeling by the Violent Femmes and Forget Me Not by the Civil Wars], and Nick took them on with no problem, even suggested classical songs to play before and after the ceremony. But to me the most important part was his flexibility. He began playing 15 minutes before the ceremony began and then it started to rain! While many guests took cover in our garage, Nick reestablished himself in our breezeway and continued playing until the shower petered off. THAT is professionalism! I'd recommend Nick to anyone, as he was truly a great addition to our day!

I was about half way down the aisle when I realized that I hadn't yet looked toward my fiance. Instead, I was twisting my neck backward watching Nick's bow glide along the strings. The music was lovely. I was actually envious of my guests who got to listen to him longer. What a weird feeling to experience on "my day." That said -- Nick worked with me extensively on selecting the songs to play during my wedding. He gave me a suggested song list, emailed me YouTube clips, and told me which songs would work best together. It was easy to get in touch with Nick, and he responded to every phone call and email. I would definitely recommend hiring him.

We felt extremely lucky to have found Nick. We had a 'wedding emergency'. Two days before my daughter's wedding, the person that we had arranged to play music as she walked down the isle fell through. I requested a quote from Gigmasters and Nick responded almost immediately. He was the ultimate professional. He called several members of the family to discuss the arrangements, made recommendations on music for the prelude, processional and postlude (which were wonderful), and also provided alternate suggestions. He sent links of music via email for us to listen to and approve, showed up on time and played like an angel.

Nick Dinnerstein is such a talented musician -- we are so thrilled that we had the opportunity to book him for our wedding. When I heard his brilliant playing as I (the bride) was getting ready to walk down the aisle -- it calmed and delighted me. And afterwards, the guests raved about his playing. He's an exceptionally talented cellist -- the real deal. We are now huge fans and look forward to purchasing a CD of his music when available. We are so grateful to have come across his profile through Gigmasters.
