Lately we’ve performed at quite a few corporate entertainment, and it got me thinking how a business/corporate environment can gel so well with the arts/string quartet. Typically while most weddings play out on weekends, corporate functions are more likely to be in the evening on a weekday. So this opens up a lot of availability for us.
It always strikes me when we’re performing for corporates, say for a sit down awards dinner for example, our live string music isn’t there as a headline concert type act, but background music; this promotes chat, a relaxed atmosphere, even a talking point in itself. I always try to imagine what these functions would be like without our music, and can only hear the clunk of knives & forks on plates.
Just wanted to say a quick thank you for last night, everyone enjoyed it immensely and the music made our event that much more special.
