Niche London String Quartet has been so busy these past 3 months, not only playing for weddings, parties and the hugely exciting NHS Awards Ceremony (More on that below!) but also preparing for the Spring and Summer weddings by writing and rehearsing all the new music requests!
These past months we have added lots of new modern wedding songs like Bruno Mars ‘Just The Way You Are’, which was written as the special request for Niche String Trio’s performance at Warren House in March. Niche played for 2.5hrs at the intimate and lovely wedding reception on a beautiful sunny day in Surrey. The children and guests were thrilled with the bride’s choice of mainly modern wedding songs with some classical favourites mixed in. By the end of the wedding reception the guests and all the children were dancing away and making requests for their favourite songs to be played. A throughly enjoyable performance for us.
At the end of February Niche – The London String Quartet travelled to the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre to provide the London musical entertainment for the NHS Awards and the NHS Leadership Academy. For this evening the string quartet were providing our usual amplified musical performance for corporate entertainment and were plugged in the room holding the champagne reception and the gorgeous star filled hall for dinner so the whole venue was filled with music and an atmosphere of anticipation from the very beginning. As 500+ guests filled the venue they stopped to take photos with Niche Quartet and also to make requests. Just before the awards ceremony was due to start, as the string quartet’s big finish, we played “We are the Champions” which went down well with the excited guests as they clapped for us and set the scene perfectly for the award winners to be announced!
