About Vendor

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

Growing up in his hometown of Saint James, Devin began playing cello at the age of ten. He began private instruction in 2011 with Suzanne Valerio, who served as the Long Island Philharmonic's Associate Principal Cellist until the group's disbandment in February 2016. Devin went on to eventually be honored as the Principal Cellist of both the NYSCAME All-County and NYSSMA Conference All-State orchestras during his junior year of high school, the summer of which he was awarded the Dean L. Harrington Memorial Scholarship at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center by the NYSSSA School of Orchestral Studies. Devin recently graduated from UNC Chapel Hill, obtaining both a B.Mus. degree and a B.S. in Mathematical Decision Sciences. A Kenan Music Scholar, he was one of four recipients — amongst approximately two hundred auditionees — in April 2015 of the Department of Music's premier scholarship for outstanding academic and musical achievement. Through this program, Devin and his colleagues were offered workshops and masterclasses with internationally-renowned performers (most notably John Sharp, Principal Cellist of the highly-revered Chicago Symphony Orchestra), free attendance to world-class classical music performances through Carolina Performing Arts, and the opportunity to combine musical studies with academic coursework at one of the nation's most prestigious research universities. He had the privilege of taking lessons during his years as an undergraduate student with Professor Brent Wissick. While he acted as Principal Cellist of the UNC Symphony Orchestra, Devin also sang baritone for Carolina Choir and was the Head of Recruitment and Publicity for the choral department's administrative Choir Council. He also played double bass, having performed with Charanga Carolina — the university's premiere Cuban salsa band — and joined the UNC Wind Ensemble in the group's invitation to perform at the CBDNA Southern Division Conference at the University of South Florida. Outside of the Department of Music, Devin served as Music Director of UNC Pauper Players' Performance Troupe, a touring musical theatre ensemble that performs show tunes for nonprofit organizations across The Triangle. He is also the former member of the alternative metalcore band Perimeter, whose EP What Lies Ahead to which he contributed is currently available on all major streaming platforms. Upon graduation, Devin was awarded the Benjamin Swalin Orchestra Award for his significant contributions in artistry and leadership to the university's orchestra program. Soon afterwards, he attended the International Music Festival of the Adriatic where he studied with Dr. Tulio Rondón at UWC Adriatic and performed chamber music in Duino Castle as well as other historic venues in provinces of Trieste and Kropa, Slovenia on the program's highest scholarship. Having since returned home, Devin currently acts as Principal Cellist of the South Shore Symphony and New Inlet Chamber Orchestra and is available for special event booking on and around Long Island.

Christmas PartyReviewed on December 9, 2022From New York City, NY

Devin was incredible to work with! Would definitely recommend. He was able to partner up with a violinist for our Christmas party, and they were both great performers and a fun addition to the group. Hope to hire them again in the future!

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on June 19, 2021From Water Mill, NY

Our experience with Devin could not have been better. He is a very talented and versatile musician. He accompanied a family violinist on the cello during our wedding ceremony and then played during the cocktail hour. He was 100% accommodating to all of our requests. He is a consummate professional and a pleasure to interact with. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Devin Cornacchio:

It was a lovely ceremony and Gracie played with such grace. If her wedding needs some entertainment as well, don't hesitate to reach out!
