"The Gallina String Quartet were everything we wished for and more during our wedding day. From the very first contact they were extremely prompt, co-operative and thoroughly diligent in their preparations. We chose a very particular selection of music for our ceremony and a range of classical and modern pop music for our reception, but the Gallina quartet played it all superbly! Five months later and we are still receiving compliments about our wonderful wedding musicians." ''Angelika and the other members of the Gallina String Quartet played for our wedding on 1st July 2017 at York's Merchant Taylor's Hall. Booking them was easy and they just got themselves sorted on the day with the absolute minimum of fuss. We were delighted with how they wonderful they sounded, as well as looking the part for our wedding ceremony. We asked for both classical and popular pieces from their repertoire and we were delighted with their performance of all genres. The quartet were also quickly able to adapt to a rather late-running bride, extending their playing with good humour and enthusiasm! We would certainly recommend them to any considering a similar life adventure any time soon.''
