We just wanted to thank the Quartet for such a lovely performance and service which made our wedding that much more special.

“We are so grateful to you for your wonderful performance – several people have told me that this was the best conference dinner they have been to (and they did not mean the food!) You managed to combine great music with entertainment that perfectly suited the occasion, and your instincts about pace and pitch were perfect. Thank you so much for making the main evening of our conference so memorable!”

“I just wanted to say a huge thank you to the quartet for playing at our wedding. The music was fantastic, and it really made the day special to have you there. I particularly loved the Elgar when we signed the register, and I was very nearly in tears walking up the aisle to the Corelli. I heard the Haydn as I was meeting the Registrar beforehand, it was lovely. Thank you for all the effort you made to personalise the choices for us, it made it very memorable.”
     Isabel & Rob, Locko Park Hall
