Cellist available for weddings, corporate events, memorial services, dinner parties, and other special occasions.
I do have a one hour minimum, but for wedding ceremonies, this includes a 30 minute prelude as your guests are arriving.
Thanks for playing our wedding ceremony!
Samantha did a lovely job. She helped make our small memorial service elegant and memorable. Samantha was on time and very accommodating. I highly recommend her and Gig Salad.
I was very impressed with Samantha's playing and it was perfect for a small formal setting.
Samantha was very easy to work with and very talented to boot! Working through Gig Salad made the search for my wedding ceremony musician very easy, and I had a sense of security as well.
Samantha was very straight forward and professional. She gave me a great list of songs for the processional and recessional that would work well for a solo cellist, and had music samples available on her website. She also was very accommodating of my hectic schedule, because it took me quite a while to pick the right musical selections!
We had originally planned for a small outdoor garden ceremony, but the rain forced us indoors. Samantha graciously worked with the impromptu set-up and everything went smoothly! I would definitely recommend her!
What to Expect
Samantha can tailor the musical selections to fit your needs. From Mozart to Metallica, she will create an event to fit your style!
