String Trio in London

Last Friday night Premiere String Quartet were booked to provide a String Trio for a 30th Birthday party in the Institute of Directors, which is in Pall Mall in London. It’s one of several wonderful buildings that we have performed in along the same stretch which has also included the RAC Club.

We worked closely with the client in providing a playlist that she was happy with, balancing her love of classical music (especially Debussy) with a mixture of music which would be popular with her guests. So we performed several sets, starting with Classical music including Schubert’s String Trio, Debussy’s The Girl With The Flaxen Hair and Pachelbel’s Canon in D. Moving on we performed some lighter, jazzy numbers including songs by Gershwin and Sondheim. Tangos followed and we finished the evening playing a set of modern covers including many of our unique pop arrangements for strings.

The guests seemed to have a wonderful time in this fantastic venue and we were well looked after so it was a really enjoyable booking for us!

Olympic event for Greece!

Premiere String Trio performed last Friday for  another Procter and Gamble event at Vinopolis in London. This time we were performing for the Greek team, their families and delegates. It was a fantastic atmosphere and we played a selection of Classical String Trios and Pop Arrangements, performing Boccherini String Trios along with classical favorites including Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, Pachelbel’s Canon, Air on a G String and Arrival of the Queen of Sheba. It is a fantastic opportunity for us to be involved in some way with the Olympic Games.

String Quartet, String Trio or String Duo for Corporate Events

Strings for corporate events

Premiere strings are the professionals at providing music to create the perfect atmosphere for your next corporate event.

Please contact us with your requirements and we will tailor our set to match your theme or mood.

To help you plan your event, we have put together a list of common scenarios that our String Quartet get asked for regularly:

Receptions / Welcome Drinks

Why not greet your guests with some welcome drinks and some appropriate classical string music to set the scene!
Classical string quartet music is very sophisticated and creates a great welcoming atmosphere for your guests.

Background Music for Dinners

Light classical music and popular jazz standards often work well as background music over dinner.

Award Ceremonies

At award ceremonies string quartets are often used at the start for the welcome drinks and also through dinner. The ceremony involves movement by nominees which can take time – we can play short pieces of music to help this process to be as smooth as possible. Some sort of fanfare music is sometimes appropriate.

Openings, Promos & Product Launches

There is nothing more classy than having a string quartet perform at your store opening, promo day or product launch.
We have helped promote all kinds of products and services – remember you only have one chance to make a first impression to your customers!

If you are organising a corporate event you need a string quartet!
