Solo cello for wedding ceremonies, cocktail hours, and high end social events. My repertoire ranges from Bach to the Beatles and beyond. I have selections from the Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and 20th Century musical periods, as well as jazz, American standards, folk, classic rock, country, and modern pop and rock. I'm also an excellent arranger, and am happy to take song requests.
I was educated at The Boston Conservatory, The Hartt School of Music, and The University of New Hampshire. For the past 11 years I've been freelancing in the Connecticut area, and have extensive experience performing at weddings both as a soloist and part of an ensemble.
Founding member of the Sedgwick Duo.
Chris was a consummate professional. He arrived at the time decided, was practiced, play impeccably!!! Our daughter was very happy with the quality of the music. Thank you, Chris, for making the ceremony so very special!
Mr. Devoe was an absolute delight to work with from initial contact, to musical advice for the wedding, to the actual playing at the wedding. He was exceptionally timely and polite in all his interactions and his play was simply beautiful, adding so much to the wedding ceremony. He is also very reasonably priced. Mr. Devoe has my highest possible rating for professionalism.
