What People Say:

"An absolute delight, everyone said how wonderful they were. Thank you so much!"
Laura Ohrman - wedding reception - Buckinghamshire - June 2015

"I just wanted to say a huge big thank you for being absolutely fantastic at our wedding ceremony … Please extend our thanks to the rest of the Monaco String Quartet. My mother and I were absolutely delighted with arrangement you put together for the Hamish Maccunn: Land of the Mountain & the Flood. It certainly brought a tear or two to her eyes! Everyone has said how fantastic you were and they were most impressed that you set up and played in the courtyard too. I'm sorry I did not get a chance to speak to you all and thank you properly in person. I think I was carried away in the moment! "
