Niche String Quartet busy in London!

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!

Top Quality Corporate String Quartet Entertainment in London

It has been a busy summer for Niche String Quartet and Trio with lots of different corporate clients hiring us to entertain at their exciting corporate events! We are currently looking forward to the Corporate Christmas Entertainment we are providing for those fun Christmas Events in December!

Some performances were at venues with fantastic views such as the Berkley Homes’ One Tower Bridge launch at the top of City Hall where Niche Quartet played 3 hours of classical repertoire to entertain guests as they perused the luxury flat plans and enjoyed the sunset across the river. We had quite a few guests come to us and make requests and it was such a joy to thrill them with their favourite pieces by Mozart and Handel!

After the event Rebecca wrote,

“Dear Kimberley & team,

 Thank you for helping to deliver a beautiful evening last night.  We would certainly book you again if strings were required.  Your music received many compliments and a few request I understand!  Well done to all of you!”

Another wonderful corporate event towards the end of summer was at one of Niche London Trio’s favourite venues, Haberdashers’ Hall. Niche String Trio took over the entertainment for the corporate dinner after Kimberley had provided entertainment as a solo pianist during the reception. Niche played a mix of our upbeat modern and classical favourites to entertain the diners and help them celebrate the amazing milestone of 100 billion transactions in between the speeches. At the end of our performance we received so many compliments and thanks from the guests we were blushing! So lovely to know everyone appreciated and enjoyed our work!

Corporate Entertainment with a spectacular London view!

The beginning of Summer was filled with providing entertainment for corporate events for Niche – The London String Quartet. Some of the best were in unforgettable venues with magnificent views of London!

At the beginning of June Niche London Quartet played for events specialists ITA’s Secret Garden Party and 3rd birthday hosted at the grand venue Stationers’ Hall hidden away in the heart of the St Paul’s area. As their recommended supplier of entertainment for all of their 40 fabulous venues across London it was an especially exciting reception hosted out in the private courtyard. The sound of Niche Quartet carried across the luscious expanse perfectly, with our popular music repertoire adding to the excitement and anticipation of the specially invited guests.  We are looking forward to working further at our other ITA venue bookings and with the team once again later this summer!

Later  in summer Niche, as a String Trio this time, travelled to the St Paul’s area again to entertain for a fantastic corporate party on the roof of The Grange Hotel’s Skybar. The view was unforgettable as we entertained guests for 5 hours as the sun set across panoramic views of London city and of course beautiful St Paul’s Cathedral.

For the reception and dinner Niche London String Trio played upbeat and lively classical music to keep the energy of the evening building. Then as the evening moved on after the Charity Auction we sat down to provide our highly unique and fun NICHE LIVE JUKEBOX show.

This is our fun service where we provide the music and guests can come up at any point and request their favourite songs to hear all through the night. The guests were completely engaged and thrilled by this idea, and as an added bonus to the charitable feature of the evening each song request required a donation. By the end of the evening, as St Paul’s struck 11, the guests were absolutely delighted they got to hear exactly what they wanted all night and the large charity bowl was completely full!

Events Music for a Wimbledon Garden Party

Today the sun shone on the string quartet again as we visited Wimbledon just before the Wimbledon Tennis Championships 2012 begin!

Today the quartet were providing live music entertainment for a private party in London‘s leafy borough.  The quartet set up on the decking under a picture-perfect weeping willow and got to work entertaining the guests. We filled our two hour set with 1.5 hrs of delightful classical music and the remaining half hour we filled with songs from our upbeat popular sets.  By the end people were dancing and we’d been showered with compliments!

From Bach to The Beatles – through 300 years of music – in just 2 hours!
