about Leah Coloff
I love bringing the elegance and beauty of the cello to the special events in people’s lives, especially weddings! As a conservatory trained classical musician with tremendous versatility, I have played professionally in New York City for the past 15 years in a variety of ensembles and a multitude of New York venues from Carnegie Hall, BAM, Joe's Pub, to Mercury Lounge with musicians such as David Bowie, Rufus Wainwright, Linda Thompson, Trey Anastasio, and Phillip Glass, among others.
A diverse range of music is at my fingertips from traditional favorites such as Pachelbel Canon and Handel’s Water Music to The American Songbook featuring lovelies like “Isn’t It Romantic”, “Blue Moon”, “The Rose Room” , to contemporary songs such as, “In My Life”, “Love Song” by The Cure, “Isn’t She Lovely” by Stevie Wonder.
Twenty years of wedding experience allows me the expertise to plan and create a unique and memorable musical experience for your ceremony. One that conveys your personal style and creates the ambience you desire for this special day. And as a solo cellist I have the energy and musicality to fill the room!
I hold a degree in cello performance from San Francisco Conservatory of Music, with graduate studies at New England Conservatory of Music.
My passion is singing and accompanying myself on the cello. To find out more about this side of me visit leahcoloff.com.
