The group has a wide and varied repertoire, incorporating classical, opera, jazz and pop, and are dedicated to helping you find the perfect music for your event. They are happy to search for music that is not on their current repertoire lists, and can even offer to arrange music that is not in print. They have arranged music by artists such as Snow Patrol, Robbie Williams and The Feeling, and have built up an enviable reputation for performing arrangements of such modern classics.

With an extensive and diverse repertoire, plus a choice of ensembles, you are sure to find the perfect combination to complement your occasion.

String Duo
Their string Duo not only looks beautiful but has a warm, rich sound and is able to move around with ease, if needs be, playing at different locations throughout your event. The duo is a brilliant choice where space is limited, or the fuller sound of a string quartet is not needed. From providing an exquisite selection of classical repertoire to a more informal performance of popular pieces, the versatility of a string duo makes it ideal for setting the atmosphere and entertaining for all kinds of events.

String Trio
Their Trio is a unique and highly popular choice and has a more varied repertoire than the duo. With music ranging from Pachelbel's Canon to Can You Feel the Love Tonight, the trio will always consider arranging personal song choices upon request. The string Trio has a sound that carries beautifully across a room and is credited highly on its exquisite sound, varied repertoire and unique set up.

String Quartet
The Quartet has an extensive repertoire selection and also has the warmest and richest sound of their ensembles. The quartet is an excellent choice for larger scale events or those clients wishing to have a wider and more varied selection of repertoire from which to choose. The string quartet can cater for any sized event and previous clients include Harrods and Claridges in London.
