About Sonare

Sonare - the premium choral quartet.
Classical ensemble
Public liability insurance of £10 million

We're an a cappella choral quartet, and we've been performing across London and the southeast for the last three years. As well as having put on three concert tours and released an album, we also perform regularly at weddings, funerals and private events, such as Dukes Hotel's Christmas party in Mayfair. We perform a wide variety of sacred and secular choral music from across centuries and continents, alongside our own arrangements of pop songs. For example, one couple used our version of Elvis Presley's "Can't Help Falling in Love" for part of their wedding ceremony music last year. We help people to bring their event vision to life with a thoughtful selection of timeless and elegant music. We can offer the intimacy of a private performance, while also possessing the vocal power to fill even the grandest of settings. With a wealth of classical and pop repertoire to choose from, we can tailor a unique set to exactly what you want. We also offer a bespoke song arranging service, so if there's something you really love, we'd love to help bring it to life!

I just wanted to say a massive thank you for the weekend. It was so beautiful! A lot of people commented on how great you were. It was a shame I couldn’t see you after to say thank you, but honestly I couldn’t recommend you all enough! I hope you all enjoyed it!

Customer questions

Do you have different line-up options?

We primarily operate aș a quartet, but if there's a piece of music which requires a bigger number of singers, we are happy to orchestrate this. We can also work with an accompanist or small orchestra if that's preferred too.

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

We are happy to be flexible and will make any changes work that we can.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

We can certainly provide an iPod service in between sets.

How much time do you need to set up?

We need very little time to set up, but usually arrive at least an hour before the start of our performance to ensure everything is set up as it should be.

Can you roam around while you perform?

Yes, we are happy to move about if necessary.

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

Yes, please feel free to leave a listen through and select your favourites. We're also happy to be guided by you if there are other pieces you already have in mind!

Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?

We do not require any equipment or amplification.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Yes, we are happy to take new song requests. We also offer a bespoke arrangement service for £75.
