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.”

String Quartet Rock Gig to Quartet Wedding Reception Music in 24 hours!

Niche – The London String Quartet had an extremely busy time in this weekend rushing around London performing in all different settings! The 2 bookings that stand out the most were played within 24hrs of each other!

On Friday Niche Quartet travelled to famous London venue The Underworld in Camden to accompany The Eljiah as session musicians in their specially arranged full album gig. This gig had been months in the planning and fans from all over Europe would be travelling to experience this one of style concert. Also some of the Niche Quartet fans that had experienced our playing in entirely different wedding based events were coming along to hear the performance!

It turned out to be an amazing gig with nearly 500 fans filling the venue and creating an energised and buzzing atmosphere right from the start. The Elijah’s debut album ‘I Loved I Hated I Destroyed I Created’ is awash with lush and emotive string sounds, and therefore since July Kimberley from Niche Quartet had been working with the composer and band member Sean Harrison to get the scoring and music perfect for this highly anticipated gig. It went exactly as planned and the both the band, Niche Quartet and the fans were completely absorbed into the music throughout the whole set – a complete success!

Feedback from the fans and the band has been excellent and Niche London Quartet were so glad we could be involved – A DVD is soon to be released of the performance: See The Trailer Here

Within 24hrs Niche – The London String Quartet were heading to the heart of the city to provide wedding reception music at Haberdashers’ Hall. The couple had already been married in a luxury wedding in Barbados and had returned to their hometown London to have their wedding reception. They used Niche Quartet’s complimentary arrangement service to have the wedding music they walked down the aisle played at the beginning and end of the reception.

After much work and rehearsing we arranged Debussy’s enchanting Clair de Lune (famously used in the last scene of Ocean’s 11) and it is now a firm favourite in our classical repertoire! For the remainder of the reception we entertained guests by creating a jovial atmosphere with classical favourites mixed in freely with our modern wedding songs. See what Paul had to say about Niche Quartet and our performance here!

A highly exciting and varied way to spend a weekend for Niche – The London String Quartet!

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. Β 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. Β 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!

Don’t forget you can follow what we get up to on Twitter and Facebook, find inspiration for your next event and even tell us what we should play next!
