Cello Player San Diego

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.

FAQ, Booking and General Policy

A cello is a wonderful instrument as it creates a deep resonating sound. The music played on the cello can vary across genres, including classical music, contemporary music, jazz music, pop music, and many more. When paired with a violin, the harmony created is beautiful and resonant.

The cello is an easy instrument to play. As with learning all other instruments, however, education and training is important. It should not stop anyone who is interested in playing the cello to pursue it. It is rewarding once you are able to play the instrument.

There are a wide variety of good cello pieces for casual events. Classical pieces, such as Bach’s Cello Suite can be fitting for casual events. Popular movie themes and top hits such as A Thousand Years by Christina Perri, Viva La Vida by Coldplay, Game of Thrones Theme, and Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen. Our cello player in San Diego, Melissa, is experienced in playing a variety of music genres.

The following classical songs were played at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding: Sicilienne by Paradis, Apres un reve by Faure , and Ave Maria by Schubert. It was beautifully played by a 19-year-old cellist, Shekuh Kanuh Mason.
