Frequently asked questions

What kind of music can a cellist play?

Just about anything! Cellists will usually be most comfortable playing classical music, but that doesn't mean they won't be able to put together a fresh renditions of your favourite pop, folk, or jazz tune. Best to check first before asking them to play Sub-Saharan reggae though.

Will I need to provide the cellist with any equipment?

Other than a seat, probably not. If your venue is small, they will likely play unamplified. All they'll need to make the music happen is their violin, a bow, and a receptive audience (oh, and probably a music stand). If your venue is larger, they should be able to provide amplification.

Will my cellist be able to play Ave Maria, Après un rêve, & Sicilienne during the signing of the register?

Well, Sheku Kanneh-Mason did it for Prince Harry and Meghan's wedding - so why not!
