Eliott Cherry is the author, composer and performer of "A Finished Heart," a live experience of story, conversation and poetry with a musical score. He is accompanied on stage by a pianist or by a recorded version of his own performance of the music.

Eliott kept a diary of his conversations with his husband of sixteen years, Chris Chenard, as he cared for Chris at their home during three months of illness. When Chris died in 2007, Eliott expanded his writings with poetry and prose. This journal is the source of "A Finished Heart."

Eliott was born and raised in New York City, where he was trained as a composer and cellist. He was a classical music radio host for many years and has been active as a composer, performer, and teacher of music. He has been a resident of the Millay Colony for the Arts.
