Testimonials

…dropping you a note of huge thanks for performing at our Ball at The Savoy last month. It really was a great success, due, in no small part, to your wonderful performance. Please say a very big thank you to the rest of the girls and thank you so much for supporting the IOH London Branch. We received many remarks about how well you played and how well you were received by our guests on the night. May I wish you all every success for the future.
Institute of Hospitality Ball, The Savoy London
Eamonn Cole FIH – Chairman IOH London Branc

Fantastic music to listen to during the signing of the register, it fitted the mood of the church ceremony perfectly as the reworking of Snowpatrol was dignified and contemporary. The music to welcome us to the reception was excellent and varied and helped set the mood brilliantly for the party, it felt extremely decedent listening to you play the argentine tango music on the rooftop bar. Thanks to all of you for helping make it a great wedding party.

Many of our guests have been in touch to say how much they enjoyed your music, and I am sure I will be asked for your details! Please pass on my gratitude to your fellow cellists, and thanks to you for organising everything so well (especially the cello versions of our cheesy pop favourites!)
