I graduated from the music program from University of Tennessee where I studied both classical music and jazz. I have extensive experience playing weddings and other private events and take pride in my versatility. I typically perform with a guitar player, and we are able to play a variety of styles including jazz, pop, and folk. In addition to performing, I have experience recording and writing cello parts for a wide variety of bands.
Cecilia, was amazing to work with! She is very professional and an incredible cellist! She works very well with a team of musicians and is very adaptable to all types of events. I would highly recommend her and I personally will be using her again!
Cecilia (Cello) and her husband (guitar) played the ceremony music and the cocktail hour for our wedding. They even learned a song to play for our exit music. She was a very professional communicator and did everything to make our wedding day special.
Response from Cecilia Miller Cellist:
Jonathan- I'm so happy we were able to contribute to your special day! Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review!
