Sandy Jones

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.
