Jade was fantastic - she was completely clear and up front with any requirements and took a loose description of what we were after and created the perfect backdrop for our event. No hesitations in our recommendation!

Perfect in every way. Jade played the pieces that I requested for the occasion (my father's funeral) with a lovely style, and the tone of the cello sounded really beautiful in church. I would most definitely recommend Jade.

Hi Natalya, Thank you so much for your fantastic performance at our Wedding in Le Meridien Hotel in Mayfair last Saturday! Our guests kept telling us how great the String Quartet is! We all loved all the music you played which really matched our wedding theme! You are also very flexible in accommodating most of the songs we would like you to play! I hope you all had a great time too!​ This is the second time you have performed for us and you never fail to awe us! You are all elegant and beautiful with very nice personalities! We would definitely recommend you to anyone we know! The positive comments and praises we got from our guests assured us that we did the right choice in choosing you to share your beautiful repertoire. Thank you very much again for your great performance! We all enjoyed it!​ I'll ask my guests to leave great reviews on you as well!​ God bless, Vanessa and Mark
