  1. Review by Shawn O'Donnell Music

    Dorette is a class act and when oppurtunity strikes she delivers with a beautiful arrangement of high quality Cello recordings. Highly recommend to anyone looking for an well-established Cello player for their song.

  2. Review by Jonathan Blair

    Dorette has an impressive resume, from her academic training,seating within the CPO, to the list of projects who’s vision has come into being via her thoughtful interpretations. Her integrity as an artist is evident and she’s one of the most passionate cellists I’ve come across. She continues to venture into new paths by which to voice the cello, to rejuvenate both the instrument, and to reimagine beloved repertoire, and creatively express the cellos capabilities in strikingly novel ways; equally comfortable as an improv artist(contemporary/pop) as she is with the sacrosanct testament of Bach

Debussy Claire De Lune

I was the cellist for all 4 voices in this production
