Christmas event entertainment ideas

Niche London String Quartet are looking forward to a busy December of Christmas events and we also have 10 Winter Weddings booked for the 3 weeks leading up to Christmas!

Now the winter nights are drawing in and you are thinking about musical entertainment for your Christmas event or Corporate party we thought we would share some ideas for Christmas event music to help with ideas for your event…

One Day In the Life of a busy Christmas Events Musician!

The Boston Consulting Group hired Niche String Quartet to come in to their offices just off Oxford Street as a big surprise to treat their workers to a morning of fabulous classical music – It was great to see the surprise on everyone’s faces as they entered the building and we kept the music upbeat and light hearted throughout the morning as they enjoyed their celebration of a great year.

BCG’s Sandra wrote to us afterwards saying,

“I just wanted to say a massive ‘thank you’ to you, Antonia, Michael and Gabor for such a wonderful performance on Friday. Everyone I have talked to mentioned your quartet and how beautifully you played. Such a lovely way to start a morning in the office! I sincerely hope we get the opportunity to work with you again in the near future.”

London Christmas Events Music


Later that same day we travelled into the city to the Museum of the order of St John to play a mix of Modern Christmas music for Alpha Consulting’s Christmas champagne reception.

After their delicious dinner and speeches we played a 2nd set of Xmas music for their event – this time we were playing Traditional Carols to go with the mulled wine and mince pies and providing our Niche Live Jukebox package guests were encouraged to request their favourite carol and even to sing along – It was huge fun for us and the guests were absolutely thrilled, singing favourites like We Wish You a Merry Christmas and Deck the Halls!

A busy 2015 for Niche London String Quartet

Niche string quartet at Stationers London

Niche London String Quartet has had such a busy period at the start of the year that our musicians haven’t even had chance to update our blog for a long time!

Our string quartet musicians have travelled around London playing for weddings at fabulous venues like Hawksmoor in the city, One Great George Street,  Richmond Hill Hotel, and Hampton Court House to name a few.  We also traveled outside London to Buckinghamshire to play at the very picturesque Woburn Abbey and gorgeous Newland Manor and visited Beaumont House in the sunshine in Surrey! Visit us on Facebook to see photos from these wonderful venues!

Of course we mustn’t forget to mention the beautiful 80th birthday party the string quartet played for in the wonderful surroundings of Claridges where the guests enjoyed our classical music  and treated the musicians they hired to a round of applause!

We have many things to look forward to in the next couple of months and summer – first of all releasing our videos and recordings from our film shoot day at Stationers Hall at the beginning of May and of course all the fantastic bookings for events, Summer weddings, concerts and corporate parties that have chosen Niche London String Quartet to entertain the guests!


Spring Wedding Music 2014

There have been lots of lovely wedding performances for Niche London String Quartet in the countryside during April – we really enjoyed performing our brand new arrangement requests and wedding music: Hoppipolla by Sigur Ros and Mr Brightside by The Killers are now some of our firm favourite songs in our ever growing repertoire!

This April we have also taken new bookings for great events in the future! Niche London Quartet looks forward to visiting some fabulous venues like the Great Hall Chelsea, Caroline Gardens Chapel, Orleans House Richmond, Painshill Park, the Andez Hotel Liverpool St, the Belvedere Restaurant and more!

We have also been busy adding new romantic wedding music songs like Rule the World – Take That, Fly Me to the Moon – Frank Sinatra, Pretty Woman – Roy Orbison and Love is in the Air – Paul Young!

Starting December with beautiful Winter Wedding Music

Yesterday was our first December wedding and Niche – The London String Quartet travelled out across the frosty fields of Essex to provide wedding music for a beautiful countryside wedding.

The venue was the lovely Maidens Barn and Niche had arranged and rehearsed plenty of new wedding music requests for the happy couple to enjoy. The String Quartet was hired for 3hrs to entertain guests with our modern music selections during the reception in the marque and then to move to the hall where dinner would be served and provide a different set of classical and Christmas songs. The important request was that the five songs that we had written specially for the brides were to be played when they were around to enjoy them with their guests and children – this was made possible by our large and varied experience of wedding entertainment and of course the careful timing of our flexible setlists.

All of Niche were excited for this to be the first outing of some of our latest Christmas songs, ‘Winter Wonderland’ and ‘Let it Snow’ and also to play old traditional favourites such as ‘Deck the Halls’. Our arrangement and performance of Kirsty’s favourite song Iris finished to applaud by the guests and people were tapping their toes and children dancing as we played the special romantic wedding song requests One Day Like This, If Your Not the One, Only Girl in the World, All My Life, and You Give Me Something. It was a beautiful wedding with a high level of fun and Niche were happy to add something extra special to the joyous atmosphere! Kirsty and Naomi were even kind enough to quickly come out to say that our performance was everything they’d dreamed of as we finished our set, which to Niche means it was a complete success.

Congratulations Kirsty and Naomi!
