The Xenia String Ensemble - String Quartet, Trio & Duo

This act is a London-based all girl string quartet who have been providing beautiful music for all kinds of functions since the year 2000 including weddings, christenings, garden parties, dinners and corporate events.

Their extensive and varied repertoire ranges from classics such as Pachelbel’s Canon through to their own fantastic arrangements of modern popular music.

Although they are based in London, they are more than happy to travel to your event, whether it is at home or abroad. If your venue is more intimate, you may like to book them to work as a duo or trio as this works excellently in smaller spaces. Alternatively, they are also available as a full all - girl String Orchestra, which creates a stunning effect for any function.

As they are all conservatoire trained, clients can be assured of the highest standards of performance and professionalism.

This string quarter are also available as a Bollywood String Quartet

The Xenia String Ensemble - String Quartet, Trio & Duo Feedback

"The act were brilliant! I knew they were good, but didn't realise how good! They played a great range of music from classical to more modern songs we had asked them to play... They were faultless!!" Chris McNair, September 2015, Mansion House, Old Warden Park

"Please pass on my thanks to the String Trio who entertained us so beautifully on Friday night.  They were a delight to listen to and proved a great accompaniment to our party. Kind regards" Kay Barnsley, Brigade Electronics January 2014

"I just wanted to send you an email to you and to your colleagues to say thank you for playing at our wedding on the 6th September 2013.  We received many wonderful compliments from our guests (including a couple of musicians and musos) about your arrangements, your song choices and your technical ability!  Not only did you play a wonderful selection of pieces, fitting our brief perfectly, but provided a beautiful, atmospheric and individualistic backdrop to our ceremony and drinks reception - I cannot thank you enough! Thank you so much for taking the time to learn two specials pieces for us too - I absolutely loved your interpretations and arrangements of them (perfect!!) and my only regret is that I wasn't able to sit back and listen to them as intently as I would have wished! Do please let me know if you ever play at recitals in the bucks, berks or london area as I would love to hear you again and I know others would to!" Jenna Graham, September 2013

"Many thanks for your email - both Louise and I were delighted by the trio. They played everything we asked for - from classical to the Sound of Music via Abba. The trio were prompt, dressed to fit the occasion and I hope they enjoyed the venue as much as we did. Both our respective mothers commented on their performance, and they loved the range of music that was played. Other guests also told us how much they appreciated the trios performance. Thank you very much for helping to make our wedding day at Hever simply perfect." Kind regards, Nicola & Louise July 2013

"The quartet were so fantastic! We had such a lovely day and they were the icing on the cake. They all arrived on time and played superbly. They really did add that something extra. Booking was easy and straight forward. We don't have any negative comments at all!" Harry Porter June 2013

"I'm really pleased with everything...it is always a risk booking these things over the internet, but I wouldn't hesitate to recommend yourself or the quartet." Barbie, Wedding Client October 2012
