About Rachel Gawell Burns, Cellist

Rachel Gawell Burns, Cellist


Currently booking 7 months in advance or less. I love playing cello for wedding ceremonies! It’s a classy and simple option that works perfectly with covid safety precautions. I connect directly with each couple to find the right vibe for the music they like.

With me, you are speaking directly to the person who is playing your wedding. I love what I do and care about the quality of your ceremony. This is a passion for me and I am in it for the love of being part of one of the most important moments in people’s lives. Other strings companies are usually contractors which means the person you speak to is a different person than who shows up to play.

    Ms. Gawell is a first-rate musician who showed great flexibility, breadth, and resourcefulness in her work for our wedding. She played the two pieces we requested—which were worlds away in style—beautifully and was a joy to work with. She is responsible, friendly, and great at coordinating with other musicians. The wedding wouldn't have been the same without here and I give her my highest recommendation,

  • Rachel is a delight!
