Dorette was an absolute joy with whom to work! She did a fabulous job recording a Cello Lead on my song, and I am very pleased. Dorette was very professional and cooperative in getting the job done, and she kept an upbeat and positive attitude in the midst of some trying circumstances ... a storm, flooding, moving, setting up her Home Studio again, etc. She's a real trooper! I highly recommend her for any projects needing a beautiful Cello Track!
Always a great experience working with Dorette! Highly recommended!
Wonderful cellist! As always, utmost professional and beautiful tone.
Dorette is a professional, working with her has been fulfilling. I immediately found the right part and there was no need to ask for another take. Dorette put in the right emotion that I asked for. I will ask her to collaborate with me on other songs again.
Wonderful experience working with Dorette. Highly recommended!
Another session and another great performance. Thank you, Dorette!
I can't speak highly enough of the work Dorette performs. A true pro and highly dialed in creative musician. I look nowhere else when I need a Cellist!
Dorette is a great musician. Very polite and easy to work with.

Dorette is a great musician, she delivered very professional sounding recordings. Very easy to work with.
Dorette was wonderful, and sent a flawless recording to me within the timeframe I requested. The tone, tempo and and specifications were met completely and I'm happy with what I received. Looking forward to more potential jobs together in the future!
Superb quality. Professional from the quote to delivery. Understanding my vision, good communication during the project, and delivery of the final product. Can recommend Dorette for your work!
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.
Saw Dorette at Heldeeberg Reserve on Sunday. WOW!!! Dorette is FANTASTIC!! It is clear she is extremely passionate about music anf gives her all. Would love to see her again!!
Where do we get info om her prrformaces?
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
