Solo Cello

The cello creates a rich, beautiful tone and can be played entirely by itself for beautiful atmosphere music at drinks receptions, corporate dinners or weddings due to its large range and wonderful sound. The timbre and design of the instrument leads to the cello being almost like an extension of the performer's body itself, resulting in beautiful expressive playing and a unique connection between performer and instrument. Our solo cellist has a similar repertoire to our other string groups, mostly offering light classical music from the likes of Bach and Beethoven, as well as a sprinkling of more modern and popular song to cater for wide musical tastes. The solo cello is particularly ideal for smaller event spaces with low guest numbers, and short performance times.
