The Avilion Quartet - String Quartet Feedback

"We just want to thank you for making our daughter Sarah's marriage to Chris at Barnett Hill on 4th September so special. Your playing and music was superb and everyone enjoyed listening to you on the terrace not forgetting the important ceremony. Thank you all for making it a most memorable day."
Wedding September 2010

"I really don't know how to begin to thank you for your wonderful music. It was absolute perfection in every way and it truly made our day. Indeed, not only was the music itself first-class but the sight of you all grouped there on the sunken lawn in your splendid and elegant attire lent an almost dream-like air to the occasion. Likewise, at the Wedding Breakfast in the Dining Hall, it was almost 'out of this world' hearing all that beautifully played music wafting down from the Minstrels Gallery. In addition to all of that, I would just like to say that it really has been an enormous pleasure 'dealing' with you - from the time when we very first made contact right up until our last exchange of emails. You simply couldn't have been more charming, helpful and obliging if you had tried! While wishing the four of you the very, very best for the future, one thing is for sure: the world of music an only be a better place with the continuing presence of all you within it!"  Wedding August 2008

"Thank you all once again for brilliant music. So many people asked me who you were - thought you sounded wonderful! They all wanted to hear more during dinner!"  London Ball June 2008

“Just a thanks for making our wedding day so special! Hope you enjoyed it too! Many guests praised you …. You made people feel posh!!” 
Wedding September 2007

“Thank you so much for creating the mood I was hoping for, it was really lovely. You are really good musicians and I wish you all the best in the future. I`ll recommend you to everyone.” Wedding August 2007

“We would just like to thank you all for the beautiful performance you gave at our wedding on 27th July 2007. All our guests commented on the tranquil atmosphere which was created by your smooth and varied repertoire. We hope you all go from strength to strength in your musical careers and we can assure you that we would have no hesitation in recommending your services in the future.” Wedding July 2007
