Classical musicians for hire

Create an elegant musical backdrop at VIP dinners, wedding ceremonies or drinks receptions with a classical ensemble or soloist

Our world-class collection of string quartets, guitarists, woodwind musicians and other classical musicians perform music by composers such as Bach, Handel, Mozart and Debussy – perfect for wedding ceremonies, receptions and dinners as well as corporate events that command a sophisticated ambience.

Many of our classical musicians also perform classical arrangements of pop, jazz, opera and film music, to ensure a diverse set that caters to all musical tastes.

Hire classical wedding musicians to serenade you down the aisle or provide an easy-to-talk-over musical soundtrack to your drinks reception or meal. Since all our classical music groups perform acoustically (i.e. instruments only, with no heavy equipment) they can move with ease between church, reception and wedding meal, so the music never has to stop.

They can also play outdoors, provided they’re sheltered from the rain and sun.

If you’re planning a special event to appreciate musical virtuosity and make classical musicians centre stage, why not book some chamber musicians for a sit-down recital?

Also see string quartets, harpists and classical guitarists.
