Have cello, will travel.
My name is Brian Donat, and I play the cello. I've been playing weddings and giving concerts throughout New York's greater Adirondack region (including Lake Placid!) since 2008. In that time, I've learned that the only thing more diverse than the park itself is the people who use it. I've played weddings in churches, clubs and resorts, as well as on islands, lake side beaches and farms, and I've even given a few house (and one cabin!) concerts! I'm more than happy to make your event as special and unique as the location on which it's held, so send me an e-mail and let's get started! Read less

Brian and his violinist friend played for our wedding in March 2015 at the Hall of Springs in Saratoga Springs, NY. When I heard the music from our bridal suite, the sound perfectly matched the elegance of the venue, and I couldn’t be happier with his professionalism and performance.

Working with Brian before the wedding was phenomenal. He understands how weddings work and knows the right questions to ask. I told him a list of songs that we liked, and he was able to build his performance around those songs. I just wish I was able to meet him for more than a wave across the venue, he seems like a great guy.

Brian and a violinist were a great addition to our ceremony. He was easy to work with. He didn't require much direction or coordination which is great in the wedding planning process. They did a great job with a Pixies song for our processional. We loved it!

From start to finish, Brian was easy to work with and extremely flexible. He had great recommendations but was sure to make your day exactly how you wanted it. We received many compliments about his music. I would recommend him any time.

Brian was simply amazing! I cannot express how happy I am we chose him for our wedding ceremony and reception dinner music. My only regret is that in all the chaos, we never actually got to meet in person!! Regardless, he is simply superb. He is an excellent musician with beautiful stylings. He even went as far as to compose a modern piece of music for the solo cello (and trio) just for our wedding. He was always a pleasure to communicate with through our countless email exchanges. He's very professional, intelligent, creative and fun! I would recommend him to anyone planning a special event as he will certainly not disappoint. It was a little scary to blindly pick a musician (I live 1000 miles from my wedding location), but Brian turned out to be one of the best selections - and most memorable- that I made. Thank you, Brian, for you service, your talent, and your friendship through this process. I will never forget it.

With very short notice, Brian Donat agreed to play his cello at my daughter's wedding and also found a fellow musician to play her violin. The music was exactly what my daughter and I were hoping for! It was beautiful! Not only is Brian a very talented musician, but he was accommodating in every way. He even drove to my work place to go over the wedding music. We couldn't be happier with the outcome! Perfection in every way!
