The Allestri Duo - Flute and Harp Duo Feedback

This Act's Average Star Rating

It was a pleasure meeting you both the other day. Below is a testimonial from my brother. Please feel free to add it to your website. I booked the duo to play in the background at the reception I held in Middle Temple Hall on 25th February 2017 to celebrate my appointment as Queen?s Counsel. They were absolutely excellent for this occasion. They provided a wonderful musical background to the occasion as well having a very impressive visual impact. They were thoughtful enough to contact me before the reception in order to discuss my requirements and theirs. I would enthusiastically recommend them, without hesitation, for any occasion, as I am sure would all my guests, many of whom commented to me about them in complimentary terms.

The duo played at my own wedding 10 years ago and everybody commented on how wonderful their music was and how it added to the occasion. My daughter, who was a bridesmaid that day, asked for them at her wedding on the 20th June this year and once again they complimented the day perfectly and created the perfect ambience and helped create a magical day for my daughter. I would highly recommend these two lovely ladies to anybody who wants some amazing 'live' background music to create the perfect atmosphere'. See you at the next daughters wedding....whenever that may be.

We just wanted to take the time before the opportunity passed to say a big thank you to you both for the beautiful music you performed on our wedding day at Marygreen Manor on Friday April 1st. From the ceremonial Canon in D by Pachelbel to the medley of popular songs played during the wedding breakfast, the enchanting sounds of the harp and flute added the perfect ambience to our day, turning a special occasion into a truly magical one. Everyone who attended was full of praise for your performance. I'm thrilled to say that we were able to obtain video footage of the occasion and will be able to listen to your wonderful harp and flute duets over and over again! We would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone else who wanted to turn an important event into something that extra bit special. With much thanks and appreciation.

We just wanted to say a huge 'THANK YOU' for playing at our wedding on 1st July. It was lovely hearing you at our receiving line and so kind of you to put a cd in our postbox for us to keep and cherish the memories! We would highly recommend you and best wishes for the future.

Thank you a great job at the wedding, although we were slightly delayed you had managed to play all the music I had requested as planned. Also your speaker was loud enough which was a success. I would like to write a review on your website if that is possible and provide a positive feedback. I would definitely recommend you to my friends and family for any future weddings. Again, thank you for all your support throughout the process and I wish you all the best.

Just wanted to thank you again for Saturday, we are all coming down to earth after a wonderful weekend. Thank you does not cover the gratitude we have for your faultless playing of every piece we asked for and more.

Many many thanks again.

The duo were perfect for our wedding ceremony and reception they added a relaxed yet elegant feel to our occasion and played a mixture of the favourite contemporary, classical, disney and Bollywood tracks we requested.
