Testimonials

"The Fanfares were excellent, so congratulations go to the arranger, and your central performance was mesmerising ... our clients at Jaguar Land Rover were also impressed with the performances and believe along with us that this was one of the best events so far in its nine years of sponsoring our annual event." Arts and Business, West Midlands.

"I can't think of a better way to spend an evening than listening to fine music. I was transported by the performance, it was absolutely magic." Mayor of Stratford upon Avon, Cllr Joyce Taylor.

"We wanted to write and say a very big thankyou for the wonderful contribution Masquerade made to our day. The music was beautiful and created a lovely atmosphere ... Thankyou also for being so patient with all our requests and especially for arranging and playing 'Local Hero' and 'Nimrod' ... It certainly is something we will remember for a very long time." Alison and Charles Sheppard.

The Masquerade String Quartet consists of some of the country's top professional musicians. The players freelance with the UK's finest ensembles from the BBC Symphony Orchestra, CBSO and Orchestra of the Swan to Il Divo, Katherine Jenkins, Goldfrapp, Chris de Burgh and Smokey Robinson, alongside many film and TV soundtracks as well as commercially available CDs.

"The clever innovative arragements by Mark Chivers (viola) enabled the quartet to do justice to The Blue Danube Waltz, Pizzicato Polka and the instantly recognisable and Vienna favourite, The Radeztky March ... This evening was an upbeat start to the year by four outstanding representatives of the very special Orchestra of the Swan." Clive Peacock, Music Critic for the Leamington Courier, on their first performance of 2009.

Covering a large area of the UK we offer clients the freedom to select a tailor made package of musical favourites; the classical appeal of Mozart mixing with the jazzier moods of Gershwin alongside favourites from Broadway and Hollywood.

The versatility of the group means that clients can hire us for lively informal concerts, have music especially commissioned, in addition to providing a classy atmosphere to any corporate or private event.
