David Cohen can create a uniquely intimate atmosphere with classical music from around the world on original instruments to add the perfect touch to your event.
His repertoire consists of music on the classical & flamenco guitar, Chinese pipa, and bagpipes.
David's unique talents have been featured in The Montgomery County Ticket, Asbury Park Press, Ocean Grove Times, The Ocean Grove Record, CBS 3, ABC 6 and NBC 10 news in Philadelphia and has been a guest on Puerto Rican Panorama WPVI T.V. Philadelphia, and Crossover w/ Jill Pasternak WRTI 90.1 Philadelphia.
The release of David's 2nd CD Chaos Theory took him to the UK in 2016 where he gave concerts in Edinburgh, Sandwich and London.
My wife and I decided to find a musician for our wedding two weeks before we got married and came across David. He was prompt with his responses and a genuinely great person. He reached out to schedule a phone call with us right after we booked him to introduce himself to us. We built great rapport over the phone and discussed what we wanted for our wedding. He plays classical guitar, bagpipe, and pipa (a traditional Chinese string instrument that is shaped like a pear). He arrived almost an hour earlier before the event to set up and promptly performed at the time that we agreed upon. He played all of the instruments that he brought with him that day and even gave us a gift of his CD album. My wife and I could not be happier with the level of skill and professionalism of his caliber. We will definitely recommend him to our friends and family in the area who may have events that would require musicians in the future. Thank you so much for making our wedding extra special and meaningful, David!
