I am currently a masters student studying cello performance at Rice University, where students perform at the highest caliber. I recently completed my undergraduate studies also in cello performance at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor (Go Blue!).
Most of my services are for weddings, church services, and receptions. I often perform with my string trio as well. Feel free to reach out if you are looking to hire classical musicians for your event!
Lindsey is a lovely spirit & excellent musician. She added beauty to our son's wedding. Well done. We are so glad we found her through GigSalad. We highly recommend her.
Lindsey is great
Lindsey was excellent! She was very professional and pleasant. She was on time and did exactly what was asked of her. I would highly recommend her services going forward and look forward to booking her future events!
Lindsey did a great job at our event. She plays beautifully, she was sensitive to the flow of the evening and the guests enjoyed chatting with her. Five stars for Lindsey!
On time, waited patiently to perform and then absolutely killed it! Too bad I can only offer only one 5 star recommendation she deserves many more stars...
Lindsey was excellent in every way. She was early, personable, willing to play any songs and professional in every way. We would not hesitate to have her back for another event sometime soon. She is very talented and will not disappoint! She played for a birthday party in our home for about 25 people and everyone was very impressed. You will not be disappointed! All the best to you Lindsey as you continue your Masters at Rice!
