Playing in Style at the LSE University Graduation Event

Playing in style for the @lsesu grad event. Skyfall went down very well and suited the Bond style of the evening!

When we were called by LSE about music for their graduation event, they wanted a string quartet but one that would not play Mozart all evening. Their guests were young and it was a classy event, in the fabulous space of the Truman Brewery in the heart of the City.

Once they established that we had the right kind of tunes available to suit the event, we pointed out that with so many guests in such a large space, they would need to amplify the quartet.

On the night, we started off with a couple of classical pieces to mark the formality of everyone sitting down for the celebratory dinner. We then moved on to lighter tunes - tangos, songs from films etc. And as the evening went on, we moved firmly over to our pop repertoire with its great mix of classic and contemporary pop - most of which is arranged by Martin, our super talented viola player and brilliant arranger.

The guests really enjoyed the music - even though we were of course background live music, we still got clapped a few times and we really enjoyed playing in such a lively and happy night. You may think string quartet is a bit too formal for certain events, but we know it's got a lot to do with the music being played. A DJ or band would not work so well here. Whilst eating and drinking and chatting, you don't want to be competing with beats (even at a low volume), so a string quartet is great for not being distracting, but still being noticed and enjoyed. We will always endeavour to provide the perfect match to every event. Had we not been amplified, this could not have worked, but because we know that we were able to advise accordingly and help LSE have the perfect event they deserve for their proud graduates.

Lovely Event for EC Global in Courtfield Gardens

We've enjoyed playing for EC Global for the last two years in Courtfield Gardens. It's a really lovely event that has been blessed with great weather for both years (it's like they can tell the future with the perfect timing of two stunning hot summer evenings!).
