"Brillant, just brilliant!" - audience member, St Martin in the Fields.
Manor House Music is a small pool of chamber musicians who play together both as a string quartet and a string duo. As well as giving more formal recitals, they believe that when the quality of music is especially important for an event, it should also be possible to hire a 'performance standard' string quartet for weddings, parties, corporate events and private functions.
Alongside a groundbreaking chamber repertoire, Manor House Music work hard to offer a vast range of musical styles suitable for wedding entertainment. They are equally happy to step outside the normal realms of classical music, performing sets of jazz and light music through to detailed and entertaining covers of classic pop and rock.
From a full string quartet to the intimacy of a string duo, the players work hard to offer a huge repertoire of music for each combination. Manor House Music enjoy working closely with clients - putting together a bespoke programme of music to suit each individuals tastes and requirements.
Whether it's for a more serious recital of chamber works, or for clients who wish to hire classical musicians to play something entertaining and upbeat for a celebration - the quartet strive to offer a polished level of performance each time they play.
Dear Vaughan, Thank you for playing at our wedding on the 8th December and at such short notice. We were very happy with the music which helped create a lovely atmosphere, and you were quite right that the duet was just the right volume for the number of guests / size of venue. The violin & cello arrangements were lovely. Sara and Alex (Wedding at Clare College, Cambridge)
