I have extensive experience playing solo classical cello repertoire for wedding ceremonies & receptions, cocktail parties, corporate events, and more. I have also contracted string trios and quartets to play for these kinds of events, and provide the highest level of playing at a reasonable cost.
Price Range: $100 and up
What to Expect
As a soloist for weddings, corporate events, etc., I typically draw on traditional "classical" repertoire, but can also have a couple of more contemporary/folky pieces up my sleeve if necessary.
I also can recruit one, two, or three other players to play chamber music. This can include anything from show tunes to classical favorites.
Audrey Q. Snyder is a cellist in Los Angeles, California. As an advocate of contemporary instrumental music, she is the former cellist of Los Angeles New Music Ensemble (LANME), through which she had the opportunity to work with talented composers like Mary Kouyoumdjian, Eric V.

Visiting artists during this time included Fred Sherry, Hans Abrahamsen, and members of Ensemble Signal. From 2010 to 2013 Audrey was co-director of RESTisNOISE, a performance organization based at the Eastman School which presented post-1900 works in a variety of spaces throughout Rochester, NY.
As a pop and rock musician, Miss Snyder has performed several times with folk artist Emily Mure at venues including Club Passim, Rockwood Music Hall, and The Living Room. Audrey has also released a selection of her own songs on Melodie EP in June 2015. She has played as a local musician on The Lion King and Mary Poppins, as well as with solo artists including Idina Menzel and Josh Groban; from January to July 2016, she played with the national tour of The Bridges of Madison County.
Audrey holds a B.M. and M.M. (with an Arts Leadership Certificate) from the Eastman School, where she studied with Alan Harris.
Additional Booking Notes
When it's just me, I typically only need a chair with *no arms*. If I'm playing with a group, they'll need the same (so anywhere from 1-4 chairs).
If playing outside, the area for myself and other musicians needs to be out of direct sunlight; in other words, shaded by trees or by something you would have set up. We also don't play in the rain unless we're situated under some kind of shelter.
