About Romain

Fantastic versatile cellist, performing many genres, able to take requests in advance.
Cellist
London
Public liability insurance of £1 million

I am an experienced and versatile cellist, as well as director of the World Harmony Orchestra and singer. I was classically trained at the highest level, studying the cello in renowned conservatoires in France and then at the Royal College of Music in London. I performed in prestigious venues solo or with ensembles and orchestras. Then, I focused on widening my musicianship and developing new skills, and became able to perform a wide range of genres. I can now play a high number of classical pieces as well as popular songs on the cello, as well. Being an experienced arranger for my ensemble, the World Harmony Orchestra, I can take requests and arrange any of your favourite songs. Being also a professional community musician (I graduated with a Masters in Community Arts at Goldsmiths College), I know how to adapt my playing to any environment and situation. I am aware of the fantastic power music has over people's minds and souls and my mission is to convey that magical experience to all my audiences.

Romain performed beautiful cello music for our art exhibition at Somerset House. His playing really added that magical touch to our event to create a memorable and enjoyable experience for all our attendees! Beyond the wonderful music, Romain was a pleasure to work with as he was punctual with excellent communication and the entire process of booking him was smooth from start to end. I highly recommend him!
