Repertoire List.....

Bethany is able to offer a wide range of repertoire and is constantly adding to the playlist. If there is a piece that you would like to hear at your event that isn't on the list then please ask. Bethany is always happy to take requests and can buy in or arrange music that is required as long as a suitable arrangement and/or backing track can be found. 

Listed is all of the repertoire currently available. The first list is for cello with backing tracks, the second is for cello with live piano accompaniment. 

"Bethany was AMAZING. She played beautifully at our wedding ceremony - we had 20 children and they were all transfixed by her playing. So many of our guests commented on how lovely the cello music was. I can not recommend Beth highly enough. She was brilliant. Thank you Bethany."

Beth provided the music for our wedding ceremony and drinks reception at Hazel Gap Barn. We were really glad to have her as part of our big day. She was very professional and helpful from our first contact with her. She is a very talented cellist and set the tone beautifully for our wedding day. Thank you :-)
