Unique and classic solo cello for events, weddings, and parties throughout the Northwest and the California Bay Area.
Sonja is a wonderful cellist who really made our wedding celebration special!! Very professional and played beautifully, I highly recommend her ❤️
Response from Sonja Myklebust, classical cello:
Thank you, Jennifer! Happy to have been part in your special day.
We had several parties that wanted to be seated near her, which is unusual. Most people want to be moved away from the music. We will definitely book her again. Liane
Sonja went above and beyond, and played wonderfully. She really gave our wedding in the woods the warmth and emotion we were hoping for. Thanks again!
It was a joy working with Sonja. She did phenomenal with only one quick rehearsal with the band prior to our service. Easy to work with, tactful player and a joy to be around. Recommend!
Sonja is an accomplished musician. She arrived on time. Played for the entire event. Dressed appropriately and is very nice
Would highly recommend !
Sonja is wonderful, particularly with the classical pieces she played. Excellent, speedy communication, on time, and flexible. Would definitely book again!
