Elena Denny is a freelance Cellist in Seattle. She holds a Master's Degree in Cello Performance from the University of Minnesota. She plays in a wide range of styles and can be booked for many different types of events, including weddings, funerals, recording studio sessions or parties. Elena can be booked as either a soloist or within a duo, trio or quartet for your event or special occasion.
Elena was a joy to have playing at my grand daughter’s wedding. She and her partner (violinist Louisa) braved the chill of our outdoor event with grace and beautiful music. Every piece we asked of them was skillfully rendered and their own selections added so very much to our special occasion! I give Elena, either alone or with her partner, a resounding “thumbs up!”
