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 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!

I was married at The Whiteface Lodge in Lake Placid, NY. Brian was SUCH a pleasure to work with. I didn't know much about what I wanted at first, but Brian was very helpful and gave me a bunch of great ideas and piece of mind about the whole selection process. He played with a violinist, and the music was just so beautiful. He is truly talented. He showed up on time and was very professional (but fun!) to work with. I would recommend him to anyone. Thanks Brian!

We had the Adirondack cellist and a violinist that works with him play at our wedding ceremony. Their music was such a wonderful addition to our special day, All of the guests commented on how lovely it was to have actual musicians, and with the acoustics in the chapel it really set the mood and helped make our wedding ceremony complete. the Adirondack cellist was also extremely helpful and really worked with me on figuring out the ceremony music. There was one song that I chose for my walk down the isle that wasn't in their list of music and they found the sheet music so they could play it for our wedding, which really meant a lot to me that they took that extra step to make our wedding more special.

I really wanted a solo cellist to play at my wedding ceremony. I just so happened to stumble upon Brian's website while searching one day. Brian was wonderful to work with. He was very professional, personable and attentive. He was great in working with me to choose my non traditional ceremony music (he also does traditional I just thought it was great that he was willing to work with me to do something different!). He was receptive to my thoughts and helped me choose based on his expert opinion as well. The ceremony music was absolutely beautiful. I couldn't have asked for a better musician or person to be a part of my wedding day! I would definitely recommend Brian Donat.

Could not be happier with our decision to use the Adirondack cellist for our ceremony...Brian was professional, responsive, and easy to work with. And most importantly, his cello playing was fantastic! He also has samples of traditional and modern music to share with you when determining your song choices.
