Customer questions

Do you have different line-up options?

Yes! We can offer the full quartet with all four cellos, or trio, duo and even solo options. Please get in touch to discuss.

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

We will accommodate your new timings within reason, up to 30 minutes, but longer than this would probably mean a price adjustment.

How much time do you need to set up?

We only take 15 minutes to set up, but usually arrive 45 minutes before the start time to ensure everything runs smoothly.

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

Yes, you can choose if you would like certain pieces from the list, or if you would prefer to generalise e.g. 'mostly pop' or 'mostly classical' we are happy to select choices for you.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

We bring our instruments, music stands, music, and evening dress (unless otherwise specified). We don't bring our own chairs, which we will need to use at the venue.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

We can arrange and learn a new piece for an additional fee of £100.
