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

My husband and I hired The Adirondack Cellist for our wedding this past October. Brian was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was incredibly responsive, gave great suggestions and rocked it the day of our wedding. Thank you to Brian and his team for adding so much to our special day.

I can't even describe to you how beautiful they sounded. We had the cello (Brian) and violin duo for our ceremony on 10/7/16. The only thing I wish we had done differently was keep them around for cocktail hour so I could hear them and enjoy them longer. They kept their composure, were very professional and never got distracted even with a screaming flower girl being wheeled around them. Brian was a pleasure to work with, fast responding and played any of my special requests. I can't speak highly enough of them!

Brian was great, we didn't know a whole lot about what types of music would sound great on a cello, but he did a great job walking us through what would be appropriate for the ceremony. We also simply gave him free reign for cocktail hour music and he did a wonderful job with both our ceremony and our cocktail hour!

Brian was a pleasure to work with while planning our wedding. He was responsive and very helpful with figuring out the logistics needed to have an outdoor wedding while he remained indoors to keep his instrument and equipment safe from the VT winter. His music was top-notch; we've received many compliments about his talent since the wedding. Thank you for everything, Brian!

The music was absolutely phenomenal and provided the perfect setting for not only the wedding but also the reception dinner. One of our favorite moments is having a video with the music in the background. They absolutely made the event more than any other vender.

if you're on the fence about hiring a musician for your wedding ceremony, all I can say is...DO IT! We hired the Adirondack Cellist to play during our ceremony and cocktail hour and we are so thankful that we did. Brian of the Adirondack Cellist is a true professional--responsive and flexible. My husband and I are big Game of Thrones fans and upon our request, Brian learned the theme song to the tv show and played it during our wedding. It was a huge hit with our guests and we couldn't be happier with the services we received.

Despite the chilly day Brian played excellently! I never got to meet him unfortunately but he was very professional from everything I heard from others. He came in picked where he was going to play, set up, played beautifully. I loved all the pieces he picked, I didn't pick any specific songs except the recessional and the wedding march but he picked pieces that fit the mood and crowd perfectly. Communication before the wedding was great! I would definitely recommend him!
