The String Orchestra performs all genres of music on classical instruments – expect Rolling Stones, Queen, Rhianna, Michael Jackson, Bruno Mars, John Legend and many more. The ensemble can be scaled up to a full orchestra depending on the project. Their professional musicians who have played extensively in concert halls across Europe and the players are specialised in contemporary arrangements to create both a stunning visual and an unprecedented musical dominance. Design your own String Orchestra with our unique sliding string scale which allows you to create the orchestral size and make-up to cater for your event and budget.

Reviews

From customers:

Jonathan P, 3 years ago

Brilliant we highly recommend. David + 2 joined our wedding in Sussex, they coped with fact they were playing at our wedding in a field amidst hay bales and still sounded great. Your rendition of the Beatles "All you Need Is love" will go down in folklore!

Nicole W, 4 years ago

Thank you for playing at my wedding at the weekend, you were incredible!
