Hello!

I'm a professional cellist, born in New York City with studies in New York and Boston. As a concert cellist, I'm comfortable with the standard repertoire, period performance (baroque cello), new classical music, and a range of popular genres.

In terms of events, I've played for over 100 weddings and make the process of planning music easy, smooth, and enjoyable. I like putting together the perfect set of music for each unique wedding.

Solo cello creates a wonderful atmosphere for a wedding ceremony, as it is often called "the instrument closest to the human voice". It is also flexible: I can perform classical music, with some classic choices including:

Bach's famous Prelude (from the 1st Bach Suite)

Pachelbel's Canon

Vivaldi's Spring

And many others...

Some classic popular and contemporary music choices:

The Beatles (Yesterday, Here Comes the Sun, In My Life...)

Christina Perri's 1000 Years

What A Wonderful World

And many others..

Remember, I'm always happy to take requests!

As for performance experience, I've played with Boston Ballet and at many venues, including: the Cape Cod Cultural Center, the New York Historical Society, and Mahidol University, Thailand. I founded the concert series, Composer Focus, in Cambridge, MA. I've also appeared on MTV and Sirius Radio with the band, 30 Seconds to Mars.

Please don't hesitate to call, text, or email for any questions or requests.

Nick was kind to come down to Cape Cod and play at my wedding. We had song requests for the ceremony [Good Feeling by the Violent Femmes and Forget Me Not by the Civil Wars], and Nick took them on with no problem, even suggested classical songs to play before and after the ceremony. But to me the most important part was his flexibility. He began playing 15 minutes before the ceremony began and then it started to rain! While many guests took cover in our garage, Nick reestablished himself in our breezeway and continued playing until the shower petered off. THAT is professionalism! I'd recommend Nick to anyone, as he was truly a great addition to our day!

I was about half way down the aisle when I realized that I hadn't yet looked toward my fiance. Instead, I was twisting my neck backward watching Nick's bow glide along the strings. The music was lovely. I was actually envious of my guests who got to listen to him longer. What a weird feeling to experience on "my day." That said -- Nick worked with me extensively on selecting the songs to play during my wedding. He gave me a suggested song list, emailed me YouTube clips, and told me which songs would work best together. It was easy to get in touch with Nick, and he responded to every phone call and email. I would definitely recommend hiring him.

We felt extremely lucky to have found Nick. We had a 'wedding emergency'. Two days before my daughter's wedding, the person that we had arranged to play music as she walked down the isle fell through. I requested a quote from Gigmasters and Nick responded almost immediately. He was the ultimate professional. He called several members of the family to discuss the arrangements, made recommendations on music for the prelude, processional and postlude (which were wonderful), and also provided alternate suggestions. He sent links of music via email for us to listen to and approve, showed up on time and played like an angel.
