About Rebecca

Solo cellist providing spell binding and heartfelt music for weddings and events all over the UK and Europe.
Public liability insurance of £10 million
Verified profile

Rebecca is a truly spectacular cellist who will mesmerise all with her breathtaking renditions of classical, pop, film soundtrack and rock songs. The moment she takes to the stage, you know you're in for a rapturous musical treat! With a setlist ranging from Bach to Billie Eilish and Elton John to Elgar, Rebecca's expansive repertoire melts seamlessly from ceremony to drinks reception, creating a consistently wonderful ambience for your wedding guests. She even has some Bollywood tunes under her belt so can marry many genres together and adapt to your special occasion's unique atmosphere! As well as being ideal wedding entertainment, Rebecca's diversity would be the perfect complement to an elegant dinner or a daytime summer event. Her mastery of the cello is beautifully effective on its own, however she can also be accompanied by an exceptional guitarist, pianist or high-quality backing tracks for an even more dynamic performance. Rebecca has been honing her talent for over 30 years, and her accomplishment on the cello shines through the second she puts bow to string. After being awarded scholarships to the venerable Purcell School and Royal College of Music, she has since performed across the world and at revered UK-based venues including Birmingham Symphony Hall, St John's Smith Square and Buxton Opera House. She is a constant fixture at Magic Garden Studio, and is no stranger to the legendary Rockfield Studios. On top of all of this, she has also performed solo for then-Prince, now King Charles, so you can be rest assured that she has the royal seal of approval! Rebecca will perform for an hour as standard, but for an additional fee you can include an extra hour's set to inject as much magic into your event as possible. You can also incorporate an acoustic duo set with charming guitar/vocals who will add a more modern pop and rock dimension to your party and allow Rebecca to show off her talent at approaching different genres. She will provide her own first-class PA and lighting equipment to further illuminate her spectacular performances. Rebecca will also happily learn 3 special requests at no extra cost, allowing you to put your own personal stamp on your occasion's entertainment, or have your dream first dance brought to life! For the perfect enchantment of bliss to be cast over your event, look no further than Rebecca. Don't delay and miss out on this phenomenal cellist - book today!

We booked Rebecca for our wedding on 25th March 24. The sound of the cello was amazing as was the professionalism and experience of Rebecca playing our preferred song choices for the seating of guests, bride entrance and signing. We didn't request any preferred songs for the drinks after the ceremony and left it to Rebecca to play whichever she enjoyed playing. All guests said how good she was, and it was a surprise to them all as we kept it a secret from them. The cello fits perfectly with the occassion and I am so glad we booked with Rebecca. She travelled 3.5hrs to Norwich for us too!

“I recently booked Rebecca to play at my daughter’s wedding. She was punctual, professional and very flexible and willing to adapt to circumstances which changed at the last minute. Her playing is breathtakingly beautiful; she has a rich tone and a wonderful sense of lyricism in her playing. I would recommend Rebecca as a cellist at your event or function.”

“Rebecca Rose joined my quartet that I set up in 2001 two years ago.I can genuinely say I have never had the privilege of playing with such a wonderful player in every way. She plays with such immense depth and musicality and is also technically incredible.She is also a lovely,easy going and amenable person to spend so much time playing with.I feel so fortunate to know her and play with her.”
