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.

City String Ensemble played at the marriage ceremony of our wedding. They had excellent and lovely suggestions for the music to be played, and were more than happy to play music of our choice. Total professionals who didn't give us a moment of worry, these team know their stuff. Ask them for suggestions on how your music choices can fit with timing on the day! Would definitely use again.

Excellent! From start (initial contact and enquiry), to finish (performance), City String Ensemble were a pleasure to work with. Sophie was very helpful and accomodating, she also offered a very competitive package, advising what would work in an honest way. She was always prompt with communications, and helped where she could.

The team were punctual on th day, and played amazingly, guests loved it! Thanks to the team!

Please keep my name and email address invisible from the public. Thank you.

City String Ensemble did a fantastic job at our wedding. I asked for a string trio. They followed my instructions to the letter and were very cooperative during the event and in the run up to it. They brilliantly played additional pieces of music that were not on their repertoire. They also beautifully played a mixture of classical and popular songs. All guests commented how well they played and what a fantastic idea it was to have a live trio at our wedding. The trio were smiley and extremely friendly and reliable on our wedding day. I would recommend their services to my best of friends and family and would employ their services again should I have another event. Very well done and thank you for making our special day even more special.

City String was a pleasure to work with for our big day. They were professional from the outset and had a huge choice of songs we could choose from. Anyone thinking of a string quartet or similar for their special day should look know further than these guys. They are brilliant.

Thank you City String

City String Ensemble were sensational at our wedding!! We went with the trio and they played a wide range of songs from the classics to the game of thrones theme!

Their communication throughout was amazing and they made our day extra special as all the musicians were incredibly talented as well as very very nice people.

If you're looking for wedding music - look no further!!!

The String Ensemble came to our residential care home for an evening event and they were fantastic. They came on time set up with minimal fuss and played beautiful music. Worth every penny !!!!!!

Sophie and colleagues played so beautifully at our daughter's wedding on 6th November. My daughter particularly wanted a quartet with cello as a reminder of her grandmother who had been a passionate cellist!

They played before and after the ceremony itself and while aperitifs and canapés were served. They were punctual, they are talented musicians and chose and played appropriate music. We would not hesitate to recommend them and would most definitely use them again.
