It’s Christmas Entertainment time Niche London Style!

Now the leaves are falling off the trees Niche London String Quartet start looking forward to their Christmas entertainment and events packages! Thinking back to last years Christmas events in London and what new string quartet Christmas music we can learn and perform this year!

Last December was a flurry of Xmas performances for the string quartet across London. Beautiful winter weddings at some of our favourite London wedding venues and fun Christmas parties and masked gala balls!

Particularly wonderful winter wedding music was played by the string quartet at The Asylum Peckham, 30 Pavilion Road Knightsbridge, The Corinthia in Embankment, Mayfair’s Carlton Club and The Royal Aeronautical Society, Chelsea Town Hall and we finished our Christmas bookings at Pembroke Lodge in Richmond.

Also Niche London String Quartet loved opening the Ministry of Sound’s Winter Event with a modern music package and playing an intimate candlelit party at Spitalfields with our special Christmas version of ‘Niche Live Jukebox’ for AirBnb!

We can’t wait to perform all our fun string quartet modern and classical Christmas music this year for our wedding couples and corporate events. See all our feedback from our 2015 Christmas clients below and book the London String Quartet for your fun Christmas entertainment today!

Niche London String Quartet accompany a Royal Entrance!

One of 2016’s highlights Niche London String Quartet provided music for the Duchess of Cambridge and her entrance to SportsAids 40th Anniversary Charity Event!

The string quartet has been enjoying performing and providing the best quality entertainment for a whole raft of wonderful Summer parties, corporate events, and July has broken a new record for the number of wedding music performances our London musicians have played!

But one particular highlight in Niche Quartet’s busy calendar this year is being asked to play our classical and modern string quartet music for SportsAid’s 40th anniversary event at Kensington Palace hosted by their patron HRH The Duchess of Cambridge.

We were thrilled to hear we had been highly recommended to SportsAid by a previous client of ours and excited to accompany their big event celebrating 40 years of their wonderful charity work. The string quartet provided an ambience of light and energetic music to match the sports displays of some of our country’s newest Olympic athletes and the arrival of famous sports-stars to the front of the palace.

As the guests gathered the string quartet started to play a favourite classic, Vivaldi’s 4 seasons, to accompany the entrance of HRH The Duchess of Cambridge – Experience the big moment with Niche London String Quartet’s live music & watch the video below!

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!

The Modern London String Quartet

Summer has been so busy with corporate summer parties being entertained by our Niche Jukebox package, beautiful weddings all across London being serenaded with our string quartet wedding music and all the new modern music requests we have written and learned so our Niche couples can personalise their big day!

Our song list has just been updated and now has nearly 100 modern songs to choose from! Have a look at all our string quartet music here.

June was a record breaking month for the number of events we entertained at….then July broke that record straight away with Niche London String Quartet providing entertainment at events at Wrest Park, The In and Out, Grove House, Chiswick Park, Highclere, Inn the Park St James Park (Twice!), Richmond Hill Hotel, The National Gallery, Fitzroy Square, the Landmark London and lots of beautiful churches for wedding ceremony music around London!

We also had some lovely feedback from happy corporate clients and couples:

“I just wanted to drop a note to say thank you so much for the lovely entertainment at our party. Everyone commented on how great y’all were and my director was very pleased. We will definitely call you again if we ever need music for another event.”

“I would just like to say a huge thank you for playing at our wedding. The guests loved every piece of music you played. The whole day went so quickly but was such an amazing day and venue. Thank you again.”

Super busy Musicians for Events!

May has been so incredibly busy – just this week Niche – The London String Quartet have been travelling all across London to provide entertainment for corporate parties, champagne receptions, and weddings! We have also been putting together all the special requests of music for our June bookings.

Mid-week Niche Quartet travelled to the city to provide musical entertainment for ITG’s office party. Niche entertained guests throughout the 3hr party with a mix of classical and popular music. Everybody was having a great time!

We also went to The Chelsea Flower Show to provide music for corporate events at the stunning Great Hall the Royal Hospital Chelsea. We provided an energy filled performance of classical music for the first half of the champagne reception to welcome guests to the luxurious surroundings. Then for the 2nd half we performed a mixture of jazz, film music and of course our favourite chart hits as guests enjoyed canapés. Once again lovely guests took the time to come and thank us and say how much they enjoyed the music as they headed home after a great evening!

Last weekend Niche London Quartet visited the gorgeous countryside wedding venue Gaynes Park Barns to play wedding music for a wedding reception with a view. The bride had provided us with the list of songs she wanted to hear from our repertoire list and we went to work thrilling and entertaining her guests in the sunshine. We finished with our Queen Medley and some lovely guests came over to say they thought we were fabulous and amazing 🙂

We have been having a great time providing entertainment for corporate events and weddings across London venues and are looking forward to all the wedding music and event entertainment we are providing in June – our busiest month yet!
