New songs ready for these Spring weddings include Start me Up (Rolling Stones), extracts from the Sound of Music and How Long will I love you (Ellie Goulding).

 

 

A busy February

January and February are usually fairly quiet  months for Highly Strung Quartet but this year has been a bit of an exception. We started the year with four weddings in January and February had four corporate events in store plus a rather romantic wedding at the beautiful Thrumpton Hall.

Three of our performances were open to the public and it was great to meet clients past, present and future in Nottingham at the Galleries of Justice, the Victoria Centre and the Broadmarsh Centre.

63 more engagements booked in for the rest of 2015 and 9 bookings for 2016 already.

A busy Highly Strung is a happy Highly Strung :-)

Autumn and Winter (Christmas!) Weddings…

With the new weather we are experiencing it feels like our summer wedding season is over! We have 3 more weddings this month, a few autumn weddings next month and then we are suddenly into Christmas weddings and events. We love playing seasonal repertoire and there is something rather special about having a Christmas Carol in for church weddings in place of a hymn. Please click on our Christmas repertoire to find out what we have.
