What to Expect
At the majority of events I play, be they weddings, receptions, dinner parties, or gallery openings, I am seated and playing in an acoustically accommodating space. Audiences can expect to hear a style of music complimentary to the event taking place. For example, Bach's solo cello suites are very well received at weddings, galleries, or generally happy events, while Brahms, Bruch, or Faure, are often more somber and tailored to memorials or funerals. Of course, contemporary pieces such as Mark Summer's, Julie-O, are always a welcomed and fun addition to nearly any occasion.
