About Melissa

Melissa, a solo cellist in Southern California, played her very first music notes at the age of three. Her music journey began on the piano, but cello soon entered her life at the age of eleven, and she instantly fell in love. Over the years she has continued to improve as a musician and performer, playing in numerous orchestras, chamber music groups, musicals, operas, ballet, weddings, live entertainment events, corporate functions, and various private events.

She moved to San Diego in 2009 to study mathematics, economics, and cello performance at UC San Diego and has stayed in the gorgeous city since. Although she works with numbers during the day, Melissa squeezes in as much cello time as possible on nights and weekends to continue her passion. She currently plays with La Jolla Symphony, City Ballet of San Diego, Opera NEO, and various chamber groups. Melissa loves her cello, Mel, for its wide range and sweet tone; she is always excited to share Mel’s lovely bright sound with the rest of the world.

Margie and her team were so on top of it! Booking and negotiating we're a breeze. We had some particular requests, and Margie and her team were more than accommodating. She was literally available to answer questions night or day. The music ended up being beautiful and exactly as we imagined. No wonder this team is number 1 in So Cal!

We can’t thank The Ocdamia Strings enough for their incredible service, professionalism and music. The whole team is delightful to work with from the coordinator all the way to the musicians. They can play a range of classical and pop songs and will work with you to build a music list of your dreams, including custom contemporary-pop and classical compilations. They’ve added a classy touch to all our events and we welcome the opportunity to work with them over and over.
