The Cloister Quartet - String Quartet & Trio Feedback

This Act's Average Star Rating

Thank you for a great work during our Graduation event! The ladies were talented and professional; very helpful to us and the performance was on spot. Hope to rehire in the future. Warm regards, Jay Hoffman

Jay Hofman, Coventry University, London,

The quartet were helpful in terms of advising on the number of pieces we needed to choose for the ceremony. They responded well to the selection of pieces from their repertoire, and added in appropriate choices, to complete the time available. The quality of their work could not be faulted. The classical pieces were very fitting for the formal part of the process and our guests were entertained and surprised by the breadth of their more popular selection “Listen to that, they are playing Oasis!” exclaimed one guest. I was very pleased with everything.

Nicola Walsh, Rushton Hall
