Booked City String Ensemble for a Wedding
5.0   Verified review

The Quartet played at my marriage blessing and again at my the reception and were absolutely superb - arrived early as they needed time to get where they needed to be. The only sad thing was I hardly heard them myself but everyone complimented them and said how marvellous they were! They played all the songs I had asked for and I would definitely use them again.
Thank you all!

Booked City String Ensemble for a Birthday Party
5.0   Verified review

Thank you so much, you were all fantastic. You really started my birthday party off with style and every one thought you were brilliant. You added style and class to the evening and you are all very talented. Your range of repertoire is very good for all occasions. When I saw you playing at Somerset house I knew I wanted you at my 60th birthday and I hope I can get to see you again. Thank you!

City String Ensemble supplied a quartet to play for my birthday party. Dealing with them in advance was efficient and clear, and they played beautifully.
