I am a well rounded cellist and performer. I am easy to work with when it comes to deciding what music is requested for your special day. I have had a lot of experience playing for different kinds of events, weddings, parties, playing for little kids in a library, water parks and many others. I love working with other people and organizing and planning and I would love to be the musician who can make your special day even more special.
Danae was so helpful, receptive, and attentive. The music for our wedding ceremony was absolutely perfect!
My daughter's wedding was held in our church on June 17th. We have a dedicated church organist/pianist, but have always loved the cello. We were so fortunate to find Danae on Gigsalad. She agreed to play all of the prelude music solo and to perform duets with the grand piano. She had great communication with us and our organist during the months before, arrived early for the rehearsal & wedding, and took our breath away with her talent. She greatly enriched the wedding ceremony!
Danae is a very talented musician who was very professional and easy to work with. The music she played for our wedding ceremony was beautiful and completely set the atmosphere for when the guests arrived and began being seated. Everything about her performance was perfect. She even worked with us on the music selection, providing suggestions that we used as well as accommodating our requests. I would absolutely recommend her!

What to Expect
You can expect professional attire, prompt communication, music that is requested plus more and a great performance.
I have been a musician for over 20 years. I started on violin and piano when I was 6 and started playing the cello when I was 9 and continued to play piano. I have been in many orchestras, the Mansfield Symphony, Northern Ohio Youth Orchestra, Cleveland Youth Orchestra, the Akron Youth Symphony and the Oberlin Orchestra. I performed in a string trio, 2 violins and a cello, called Strings of Gold for 10 years. We traveled all over Northeastern Ohio and played for many events, weddings, parties, water parks and libraries.
I have a Bachelor's degree in cello performance from Kent State University and I continue to perform and teach privately, cello, piano and violin out of my home. I believe that performing is a way to spread the love and joy of music.
