Reviews

From customers:

Ben O, 1 year ago

"The Carlton Ensemble did our christening and were a huge success. From the consultation, through to taking personal requests and handling overly enthusiastic family members, they exceeded our expectations at every step. Fay who was our point of contact was warm and helpful. Without doubt we'll be booking them again and I have recommended them several times already. Definitely worth booking at twice what we paid!

Client, 2018 years ago

Will recommend you to anyone looking for a string quartet-thank the team--our second wedding you've played !! No more daughters though !
