The Birmingham String Quartet - String Quartet & Trio Feedback

"It was everything myself and Alex hoped for. The process was extremely straight forward and we had no issues at all. We would most definitely use your services again for any future events or special occasions and we would recommend you to our friends and family. Thanks again." Mr & Mrs Rowe April 2013

"I was really happy with the whole process. It was very reassuring to know the booking was made with a well established company. The act was very prompt and helped me out with a special request for a particular song that I needed. They were very presentable and the feedback from guests was extremely positive. During the event, we moved outside for photos and the act were able to move location to support with background music. All in all, a fantastic day and the quartet were truly a pleasure to listen to. I would not hesitate to book them again or recommend them to anyone." Andy, Wedding Client October 2012
