Yes, by request and am happy to play solo for an entire ceremony. All of my songs can be played with solo cello.
A cello is not a particularly loud instrument, but I have a high-quality, reliable system for creating realistic amplification of the natural cello sound. In fact, the volume of all performances is highly adaptable. I set the volume where the music can be easily heard yet soft enough to allow easy conversation.
Yes, I use a foot-controlled pedal to smoothly fade the accompaniments off and end the song with pretty cello sound.
I started the cello in 1993, and soon began playing other instruments, especially the electric bass.
When playing accompanied music, do you need a power source for the speaker?
Yes. The only concern is rain, and in the case of an umbrella wedding I will use my portable canopy.
Yes, typically I will set up a separate speaker system to ease the transition. On average, I need 10 minutes to make the transition and begin playing at the cocktail hour.
