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 canapΓ©s. 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 πŸ™‚

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!

 

Niche London Quartet travel for idilic Countryside Weddings!

Towards the latter half of our very busy August Niche The London String Quartet travelled out of London for wedding music in lovely leafy Hertfordshire and Essex…

On the August Bank Holiday Saturday Niche London String Trio journeyed together to the beautiful wedding of Lucy in Marks Hall, Coggeshall, Essex.Β The plan was to perform our wedding music favourites in the grand Main Hall where the guests arrived from the ceremony for the wedding reception. We serenaded them with classics such as Pachelbel’s Canon, The Vivaldi Four Seasons (very apt with the unpredictable English summer weather!), waltz’s, Bach and more. The wedding guests mingled and drank champagne until they were seated for the speeches, after which we changed our repertoire to our fun modern string arrangements such as Paradise and Coldplay, our brand new Abba and Queen Medleys, Jason Mraz, Bruno Mars and more!
Numerous guests came over to us whilst playing to ask for requests, which we were happy to provide as of course we have our extra special Niche Jukebox entertainment package perfect for keeping your guests entertained though-out your wedding!

As the String Trio left the guests and Newlyweds burst into applause, showing us that everyone had loved and enjoyed our work – an excellent gig for the London String Trio out in the countryside!

 

On the last Saturday of August Niche String Quartet travelled out of London to the wedding ceremony venue The Church of St. Peter and Paul in Little Gaddesdon, Hertfordshire. This beautiful church was absolutely stunning and historical – dating back to 1808, the perfect setting for us to play the romantic wedding music the bride and groom had chosen. We began playing Pre-Ceremony music – classical wedding favourites such as The Air on the G string by Bach, Faure’s Pavane Β and Pachelbel’s Canon as the wedding guests entered.

Using our special arrangement service Claire asked that we prepare an arrangement of ‘Story Book of Love’ from the film ‘the Princess Bride’ for her entrance. The perfect romantic wedding song for her big moment that she’d dreamed of walking down the aisle to for years!

The signing of the register began with a local choir from St.AlbansΒ  – 30 members strong singing the lyrical masterpiece ‘For the Beauty of the Earth’. Β The second half of the signing Niche Quartet played the Brandenburg 3 final movement to spice things up – perfect to portray the excitement of the big moment! We love the Brandenburg!

We then travelled across to the Hertfordshire wedding reception venue in Beechwood Park to play a mixture of our Classical Repertoire and Pop repertoire whilst guests enjoyed Drinks and Canapes in the beautiful grounds.

Niche Quartet had a beautiful day playing wedding music for the ceremony and reception in such lovely venues – thrilling such friendly and happy guests!

All the best to our happy August Newlyweds!
