Full Description
We are a highly experienced group of musicians who play together weekly in a variety of settings including for full scale operas and musicals as well as orchestral and chamber music. Most of our work as a quartet includes drinks receptions and as an experienced group of players (over 100 years between us) we are used to ‘reading audiences’ and adapting what we play to suit the ambience. We have a wide variety of music in our repertoire including a large number of classical and light jazz music which would be perfect as an accompaniment to your lunch. We can also arrange music if we don't already have it in our vast collection (we could play for more than 20 hours with the music we already have). Sonore is a fun loving group who are always professional in our appearance and attitude and most importantly, we love what we do

Personal Message from the Manager

Hi. Thank you for looking on our profile. Please do not hesitate to contact us for any queries you may have. We are also able to provide a trio or duo - this would be less than the starting from price quoted for the quartet. Would love to discuss how we can make your day really magical.

sound like a full orchestra
They're very versatile across just about any musical genre and are also lovely people who are patient and nice to deal with. They played at my 65th birthday celebration and guests told me afterwards that some of them really enjoyed playing 'name that tune'! Unfortunately, because of space limitations at the venue I could only book two of them (a violinist and a cellist) but they more than made up for this by managing to sound like a full orchestra. Struck exactly the right balance of music choices and volume to be enjoyable without being too obtrusive and definitely made a big difference to the evening. Thoroughly recommend them for any event, they gave mine 100%+ in every way!

Amazing. Beautiful music. Helpful &accommodating
Amazing! It was so lovely to work with Kathryn and the group to create a beautiful bit of music for our wedding. They were so helpful and accomodating and went above and beyond to obtain sheet music and learn new pieces for us. Could not have been happier with them and the beautiful music they played for us. Wish I could have them all over again with time to just sit and listen to it all! Very grateful to have had them be part of the day.

Absolutely incredible
Sonore were absolutely incredible and made my proposal which was a complete surprise even more special. Particularly enjoyed the Harry Potter medley and Wonderful Tonight by Eric Clapton. Thank you so much for making the occasion even more special. We will remember it forever. 💍🙂

Helped make one very special day
We employed the services of Sonore String Quartet for our intimate Civil Wedding service on the 14th Sept at The George Hotel, Stamford, where they played for the service and after in the garden. Beforehand Kathryn corresponded brilliantly. Their presence and performance helped to make one very special day. Thank you so much, Sarah & Floyd

Reliable and outstanding musicians
We booked Sonore String Quartet to play at our wedding in the South of France during the summer of 2019 and are so glad that we did. They were reliable and helpful in the lead up to our wedding. My wife and I were not sure on which songs to have and they helped us to choose the right ones for us and were very understanding. On the day of our wedding they turned up early in plenty of time. We did not have to worry about them and all of our guests remarked on how well they played and how professional they were. We cannot speak highly enough of them. One of the best decisions we made was booking them to play at our wedding! Would highly recommend them.

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

It would be hard to describe just one wedding as they all have very special moments. We particularly enjoy weddings where we play a range of music and love working with you to discover your favourite pieces and songs.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Professional, sonorous, fun, easygoing, varied

What about your business are you most proud of?

We don’t really think of playing for your event as ‘work’ as we enjoy it so much. As well as being work colleagues, we are great friends and have known each other for many years, playing together in different groups before forming our quartet.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Go with the flow and take time to enjoy it.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

Lego characters to represent each guest and laid out as the table seating plan

Describe your typical process with a couple.

After the initial discussion, we would then follow it up with a discussion about the styles of music you would like followed by identifying particular pieces for each part of the wedding. We would then arrange any pieces we don’t have so that you have your ideal choice of music.
