Do you have different line-up options?
Our line-up is primarily a quartet, with all four Halcyons performing. On the occasions that we are asked to perform specifically as a trio, we will (although we always recommend the quartet).
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
We always try our best to be flexible and ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible; if timings change before the event then just let us know. Sometimes we are unable to cater the changes, so the more notice we have the better.
How much time do you need to set up?
We need only four chairs and space for us to play our instruments, so our set-up time is very minimal, with no technology required. We usually arrive up to 30 minutes before the start time and are set-up to play within 10 minutes.
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
We have a large range of repertoire of both Classical and Popular music that we bring to events. If you and your guests have particular songs or genres in mind then let us know as much in advance as possible, as we can then cater better to your requirements.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
As above, we ask for four chairs to be laid out where you'd like us but other than space and chairs we bring everything else!
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
Again, if a song isn't included in our repertoire we may be able to find it and perform it at your event, but letting us know in advance gives us the time to purchase and rehearse it. There would be an £11 fee to help towards the cost of the music, and also the extra rehearsal time.
What do your clients love most about your performances?
We ourselves love performing; reviews of our concerts, and feedback from clients, is that our performances weren't just a joy to listen to, but also to watch.
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
September 2018-present Holy Sepulchre Church London (as its Ensemble-in-Residence) March 2019 Royal Overseas-League (Final) January 2019 Royal Opera House Linbury Theatre July 2018 West Cork, Bantry February 2018 Bermuda October 2017 Eaton Square October 2017 St. Botolph without Aldgate September 2017 St. Peter's Stourton Caundle April 2017 Eaton Square
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
Various string quartets including: The Doric String Quartet The Berg Quartet The Endellion Quartet The Heath Quartet The Chilingirian Quartet
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
