“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.”

“We had so many positive comments about you guys and you really helped to get the day started. People were really impressed by the variety of music that you played. Couldn’t be happier that it was you guys who responded to our advert!”
