Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Clients have commented in the past that they love the variety of our performances. We have so many songs from all different genres that people recognise, and might have never heard on classical instruments before! Clients also love the electric instruments, especially the electric cello which is a rare instrument!

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

We have performed on the Carnival Conquest Cruise Ship for 6 months in 2019. On board the ship, we played in the atrium lobby and in the casino as well. We got lots of lovely reviews from the passengers, a couple of which are available on our Encore profile. We have also performed at weddings in the UK since returning from sea!

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

We love listening to pop music which include classical instrumentation, for example we are big fans of Clean Bandit, Electric Light Orchestra etc. We love all sorts of music, especially pop divas like Whitney & Beyonce, but equally we all share a love for classical music and tangos - some of our favourite pieces to perform are latin tangos!

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

It would have to be playing for the Captain's Toast every Sunday evening on board the cruise ship. Performing in front of all the guests and the ship management was a huge honour!

Do you have different line-up options?

Yes we are able to perform as a trio or as a quartet. We are also able to perform as an electric group or as an acoustic group!

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

We always try our best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let us know.

How much time do you need to set up?

If we are playing as an acoustic ensemble, we only need half an hour to set up, tune and get ourselves in position. If it is electric, this will take longer as we need to set up our equipment, so we would take 1 hour.

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

Yes of course! We are more than happy to play whichever pieces you request from our list. The most important thing is that you hear all your favourites, so we are totally flexible on that front!

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, we bring everything we need.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Of course, we are more than happy to arrange and perform a piece of your choice on the day. There is a £30 additional fee for this to cover arranging time.

So much talent... There is absolutely nothing these three fabulously young musicians from Liverpool and Manchester cannot play...Night after night... Perfect, this group will be playing at my wedding. Absolutely brilliant! These three are a must see.

Sapphire String Trio is a very talented group that plays many different songs. We enjoyed listening to them every day on the Carnival Conquest. I would buy their CD if they ever recorded one. Love them.
