I’m Octavio Mujica, I’m a Senior Cello Performance major at Stetson University.
At Stetson, I’m co-principal cello in the chamber and symphony orchestra, I play different varieties of music, such as jazz, classical, pop, rock, christmas music, tango, romantic songs, and disney songs.
I’ve played cello for over 11 years now, in those 11 years I’ve had big opportunities, such as, playing with the National Youth Orchestra of Venezuela, conducted by Gustavo Dudamel, participated in many Cello masterclass, played with the FSYO (Florida Symphony Youth Orchestra). I frequently perform solo music, chamber music, orchestral excerpts, improvisations, etc.
Omg!! Octavio did an amazing job his playing really brought the vision I had for my ceremony to life. He worked with me to come up with a playlist that would really fit the mood of the ceremony ... it was absolutely perfect and I definitely be booking him again
Octavio played my sisters wedding at Casa Feliz. They played Canon in D beautifully as my sister walked down the isle. Then they played during the cocktail hour and it really set the mood. Very good job! I’d recommend him to everyone.

What to Expect
A very professional and talented cellist, enjoyable music, different varieties of music, someone who can adjust to their music style preferences.
I was born and raise in Venezuela, I have been playing the cello since I was nine years old and I can say that I have enjoyed every second of it, Meanly because I have a big passion for music and cello, I also have always loved performing any kind of music.
I studied cello in the Simón Bolívar Conservatory for three years. One of the most important moments of my life was when I moved out to the U.S in 2015, since then I have received master classes with teachers from UCF, FIA, and Stetson University. Also I was selected to participate in three masterclasses at Stetson during the cello candidate search.
I have been lucky to live all these experiences, specially coming from such an small country, but I am proud to be here where I am and continue my studies to be a top cellist and a good example for the next generation.
