The Manor House Music ensemble draws on some of the UK's finest classical musicians.
The various members also play with the country's leading orchestras - including the London Symphony Orchestra, the Royal Philharmonic, the Philharmonia Orchestra and the Academy of St Martins in the Fields. The players perform with and record for many other chamber ensembles, individually touring across the globe and appearing on many classical and film soundtrack recordings.
Vaughan Jones is a skilled violinist and string arranger who has worked hard to create detailed and entertaining arrangements so that the quartet can offer clients a huge repertoire of music to choose from in all genres - from classical to entertaining covers of modern pop songs for string quartet. He is happy to create a unique programme of music for each client and where possible, will prepare any special requests they may have.
Vaughan founded Manor House Music in 2005 after realising there was a need for a really top quality group who would not only play for concerts and festivals, but who could also be booked for private events, civil partnerships, functions and as a wedding string quartet.
Before concentrating fully on chamber music, Vaughan studied at the Royal College of Music, the Aspen Music School in Colorado and performed for several years with the orchestras such as the London Philharmonic Orchestra and the Philharmonia.
Manor House Music also have an evolving library of many rare and neglected chamber works - particularly from the 18th and 19th centuries. They perform pieces of music which are profoundly beautiful but rarely discovered. By exploring these works and presenting them in an accessible way, the group aim to bring something fresh to their recitals and recordings.
Dearest Vaughan, We would just like to thank you and the quartet for making our wedding an unforgettable day. The music was perfect. You were the main topic of conversation for the entire day. My friends could not praise you enough. My only regret was not hiring you for the whole day. Once again a big fat thank you. Best wishes and lots of love, Sui and Kelvin (Wedding at Wadhurst Castle)
