"I just can't express what it was like to hear the sound of your cello playing that dear special song for me as I waited with my family to come down the aisle. It was beautiful and perfect and like I had arrived home somehow! And the Talking Heads exit music was so awesome as well and having your presence and artistry before the ceremony and during the cocktail hour was so wonderful. Nothing about the day would have been as wonderful without you there!"

"We are so incredibly happy we found Leah to play for our wedding ceremony! Not only is she such a kind person and courteous and professional to deal with, she is an amazing musician. She even arranged a special piece of traditional Ethiopian music for us, and gave us very helpful suggestions for the other selections. We received lots of positive comments from our guests. Leah also played for much longer than we originally agreed to and in a different location than originally planned due to the weather, and she was incredibly understanding and flexible about it. I would give her 10 stars if I could :)"

We felt so unbelievably fortunate to have Leah play at our wedding, and our guests raved about the music. Leah is incredibly talented and professional, and she is also a kind and wonderful person -- someone we that we were so thankful was a part of our wedding celebration. And from our first meeting, Leah gave great suggestions for the ceremony, which ended up being the most special part of our wedding day. We have already recommended to another couple, and I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to create a special and beautiful atmosphere for their wedding day!

my wedding was super crazy as i luckily pick the one and only snow storm day of 2011 in NYC, plus my venue was outdoor!! But Leah and her friend was great. They came early, played quite a while in freezing weather before the ceremony even when most of the guests were hidden indoor. the ceremony music was beautifully done too. also it was very easy and pleasant to communicate with her beforehand. she gave me a long list and was flexible to change according to my will too. I would definitely recommend Leah to any bride who wants a reliable musician at her wedding!

"Leah played cello for the cocktail hour at our gala benefit in February, adding the perfect, elegant touch as our guests arrived. She was a delight to work with, and came stocked with lots of great music, ranging from classical to contemporary, as well as some fantastic cover songs. It also didn’t hurt that she’s hip and well-dressed. I’d hire her again in a heartbeat".
Chris Wells, The Secret City fundraiser; NYC 2/11/2010
"Leah was amazing! The sound of her cello carried beautifully. We couldn't have asked for more magical music for our ceremony. It was so original (especially since we picked the music) and really set the most romantic mood.
I wouldn't have changed anything at all. "
