We can’t thank Echo String Quartet enough- they made our day perfect. The girls were all such lovely people, and they were so professional. They listened to all our requests and they even helped us out at the church with playing the hymns- a last minute spanner in the works from us! Honestly, you were incredible and so many guests have commented on how wonderful the music was. Thank you so so much.

Echo Strings played my wedding ceremony and were absolutely fantastic. They were more than happy to learn a few of my fave songs that weren't on their playlist and their communication before the event was always helpful, friendly and professional. On the day, they surpassed our expectations - I've had so many guests comment on how beautifully they played and one of my favourite moments of my whole wedding is walking down the aisle whilst they played 'Halo' by Beyonce. Now I just need another big event so I have an excuse to book them again! Highly, highly recommended x

“Working with Lara and the girls in Echo String Quartet has been an absolute pleasure. Having contacted LIPA to enquire about availability of students, Lara from Echo String Quartet, was very prompt in responding with video footage and a bio. The Telegraph Cruise & Travel Show was a two day event at the Exhibition Centre Liverpool from 10am-5pm on Saturday and 10-4pm on Sunday. As the only string quartet at the event, it was quite demanding on the girls to play across both days with 1-1.5hrs sessions on a tight schedule. Their performances were fantastic and provided our visitors with a relaxing and intimate atmosphere within our Cream Tea Experience. We have recieved many lovely comments from our visitors since the show, and I would highly recommend Echo String Quartet for any event that requires a classy and sophisticated musical accompaniment.”
