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'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.
