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.

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!

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!

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!
