Niche London String Trio

Introducing Niche London String Trio

Niche London String Trio is a group made up of three string instruments – the two violinists and cellist from the best quartet in London! Our trio has become a very popular option for wedding music, birthday parties, charity events and corporate entertainment hire.

Niche London Trio are a favourite of the US Ambassador and his wife recently playing twice at their Regents Park residence Winfield House to many esteemed US and UK guests. Also Niche Trio were the first ever event musicians hired to perform at the brand new US Embassy at Nine Elms.

Why a String Trio?

The string trio is the perfect option when space availability and budget is not able to work with the four quartet musicians. The sound quality is still of the highest standard and Niche String Trio plays a wide range of classical favourites and our famously large and varied repertoire of modern songs!

Recently Niche String Trio musicians have been hired in London, Surrey, Essex and the Cotswolds to play wedding ceremony and reception music at: Hotel Cafe Royal, Kew Gardens, Gaynes Park, Caroline Gardens Chapel, Stationers’ Hall, One Whitehall Place, Foxhill Manor, The Four Seasons and The Dorchester.

Our clients especially loved hearing our modern string quartet pop renditions mixed in with the modern Christmas music favourites we play. 

Office Christmas Party Entertainment London

The string quartet and trio performed at the Hilton London Hotels twice for very different style Christmas events. One was a masquerade ball dinner where the string quartet played on the dance floor by candle light wearing black ball gowns along with our Masquerade masks.

Our second performance was as the London String Trio amplified at a Christmas themed event at Hilton Park Lane for Imperial Alumnae. Here we played alongside a fun Christmas themed photo-booth and magician entertainment providing our Christmas entertainment package of Niche Live Jukebox. Guests loved picking their favourite modern songs and their favourite Christmas music to hear from our huge list of repertoire. We even had some sing a long moments towards the end of the event!

Modern String Quartet London

Niche London String Quartet specialise in playing the Best Modern Music for Corporate Events and Weddings. Read about our modern string quartet London Tech Week performances and more from the busiest month for string quartet hire!

Tech Week London 2018

Mordern String Quartet London Tech Week - Niche London

London Tech Week took place on the 11th-17th June in 2018 celebrating tech through the power of events. Naturally the most exciting tech brands turned to Niche London for the right modern string quartet music to make their events unforgettable! Our first Tech Week event was to play as trio, amplified through the in-house AV, to open the London Tech Week Gala Dinner in aid of The Princes Trust in the grounds of the Tower of London. We were honoured to be hired to be the London string musicians to provide the entertainment for this important charitable event and create the perfect atmosphere for an unforgettable celebration. 

The next day Niche String Quartet played modern music as entertainment for guests at the TechXLR8 awards ceremony corporate event at Gibson Hall, a glittering events venue in the heart of the City of London. Guests enjoyed our modern music throughout dinner and as a warm up for the awards ceremony to begin. Earlier that same day our all female string quartet had already been a very modern string quartet in London, playing for a surprise performance of ‘Simply the Best’ at Kings Cross as part of an elaborate surprise goodbye gift to a top event’s company C.E.O!

Our final Tech Week performance meant Niche Quartet were up bright and early dressed smart casual to welcome guests with fabulous modern music (chosen by the director from our extensive song repertoire) at the AI Summit at Excel London. Guests were filming us as we played and our music was the perfect way to get them excited for a day of exciting new tech filled exhibition. When we had finished the director enjoyed it so much he said he wished he had hired us for another hour!

Of course if you want ultimate personalisation of your wedding ceremony, and you can’t find that one song on our list of over 10 hours of potential wedding music, you can have Niche London wedding String Quartet arrange your dream song to walk down the aisle to! This wedding string quartet for hire love making the once in a lifetime moment as your walk down the aisle perfect.

Niche Quartet play for surprise engagement then wedding ceremony:

Last year Joe commissioned Niche Quartet’s violin duo to play for his surprise engagement proposal to Nancy and play her favourite Kate Rusby song  ‘Elfin Knight’. The proposal was a great success and last weekend Joe hired Niche Quartet again to be their wedding musicians! The Mr and Mrs to be chose a beautiful wedding venue the string quartet plays in often – Caroline Garden’s Chapel, The Asylum in Peckham! We performed Elfin Knight once again as Nancy walked down the aisle and many a glistening eye could be seen in the congregation as Nancy skipped into Joe’s arms. 

For the end of the ceremony Joe and Nancy had asked if we could arrange and learn upbeat Marie’s Wedding for their exit down the aisle together – the perfect London wedding music to match the rustic and vintage style wedding decor and styling. 

We feel so lucky to have been a big part of their story – engagement to wedding with Niche London Wedding String Quartet!

2016 for The London String Quartet!

2016 has flown by for the London string quartet but it has been an amazing year of nearly 100 performances throughout London, England and abroad for Niche London String Quartet! Highlights included playing for HRH The Duchess of Cambridge and travelling to France to perform for one of Britain’s most popular newspapers at Euro 2016 in the same week of this Summer! Playing for more beautiful weddings than ever before with every single one a different mix of our modern wedding music and classical string quartet favourites has been a privilege. Also surprise engagement proposals in London, birthday parties, corporate launches, events and parties.

Top wedding songs for this year’s wedding ceremony entrance music seemed to be:

romantic ‘All of Me’ by John Legend,

painfully beautiful ‘I Giorni’ by Einaudi,

and of course the always wonderful and touching string quartet music ‘Pachelbel’s Canon’.

But of course we have had an amazing mix of song choices, one that particularly stood out for us was when the string quartet played for a bride and groom who first saw us supporting their favourite rock band at The Underworld in 2012 and then asked us to come play their favourite song ‘I Created’ for their wedding too!

Favourite ideas for the best wedding ceremony music exit includes:

Niche Quartet playing ‘Stand By Me’,

Pharrell William’s ‘Happy’,

classical Beatles favourite ‘All You Need is Love’

and of course Bruno Mars ‘Marry You’!

Looking ahead 2017 dates have already been booking up with wedding ceremony music and reception performances for the string quartet, trio and duo across London and the majority of Spring and Summer weekends have already been reserved – if you are wedding planning and would like the best quality London entertainment for your wedding day do enquire soon! We hate having to turn couples away. 

Our next performances are at Asia House in Marylebone, Moor Park in Rickmansworth, and The Cafe Royal in Picadilly – Let’s see if we can be the busiest London String Quartet ever and play for over 100 weddings and events in 2017! 

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!

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!
