Hi, I'm Adrian. I have extensive experience providing music for weddings and other special occasions. Whether you prefer solo cello, duo with another instrument, or a larger ensemble, I can arrange a combination of instruments to accommodate your preferences.

I look forward to working with you to make your occasion memorable.

Working with Adrian for music during our wedding cocktail hour and ceremony was excellent. Leading up to the event, Adrian was wonderful to work with, was quick to respond to my questions and worked with us to decide what songs to use during the ceremony.
A complete professional and a delightful addition to our family Christmas gathering.
I had the great pleasure of working with Adrian on a collaborative project involving a couple instrumental compositions for piano and cello. The project was geared towards obtaining a live recording of both pieces in a studio setting. When I started researching some local cellists in the area I knew I needed someone who was not only a professional performer but was also a skilled composer. At the time the two pieces didn't have a cello section composed so I required someone who had the ear and talent for composition within the particular genre both pieces fit into. Being skilled in both performance and composition is not standard in the musical field and to do both as well as Adrian is extraordinarily rare. In addition, Adrian is extremely polite, well spoken, and very easy to get along with. His professionalism is second to none in all aspects of music. I've worked with a number of musicians over the years and I can say without question that Adrian remains at the top of my list.
This project went off without a hitch! From our initial conversation, discussions regarding composition, meeting in person, to the recording time within the studio I was overjoyed with Adrian's work. He was very flexible throughout the duration of the project and never missed a deadline as we discussed compositional elements remotely. Adrian composed and performed both pieces flawlessly. I urge ANYONE who is looking to hire a cellist to touch base with Adrian. His skillset is extremely broad and can cover all aspects of performance and composition. Couple that with his overall professionalism and very likable character and you will be extremely hard pressed to find an alternate.
