Abi T, 23 days ago

We booked Passion Strings for our wedding a few days ago. I’m so many words, they were amazing! We had chosen songs but they also played a mixture of classics, films and modern. It added to our day and we will cherish it forever. Thank you!

From other customers:

Wedding, 2 years ago

The professionalism of Nadiia with String Quartet allowed me to relax and know that everything was going to be ok on the day. We were not disappointed. Quartet turned up on time, and played for our guests until I arrived. I shivered with excitement as I could hear the music as I approached the church. It was truly magical. The clarity and timing of everything was just perfect during and after the service - they played beautifully. We would not hesitate to book this String Quartet again in the future, she really helped make our day, a day to remember.’ Rebecca and James Smith

St. O, 3 years ago

THANK YOU ALL for last Saturday's concert (03/03/2018)! Everything went extremely well! Review: This was a chamber orchestra concert, featuring mainly the strings of this fabulous orchestra. The concert kicked off with the rarely performed Divertimento No. 4 by Bohuslav Martinů. Both Nadiia Ivkovs (violin) and Ben Kearsley (viola) commanded the stage as they interweaved their demanding solo parts nicely with each other, lightly accompanied by the orchestra in this entertaining piece.
