CelloSoul: Music for Events

A solo cello is surely one of the most expressive and beautiful of instruments. Soulful, deep-toned and reflective, with a range similar to the human voice, a solo cello will contribute a special quality to your event.

With electronic backing, or keyboard accompaniment if preferred, I can provide music during a church or crematorium service, and background music as guests are arriving.

Choice of repertoire can include solo Bach and other string solos as well as arrangements of classical and popular music with backing track and/or keyboard accompaniment. My extensive repertoire list is detailed below, and I can provide music not listed here, if adequate notice is given. image

Basic Fee: £200

An additional fee may be payable for producing new arrangements of music, or for engaging extra musicians. I will also accept bookings for electric cello or string duo
