  • Biography

    City String Ensemble provides professional live music entertainment for weddings, corporate functions and private parties. We have a pool of eight regular players as well as a team of very experienced deputy players at our disposal, ensuring we never miss your special occasion. Having all trained at the prestigious Guildhall School of Music & Drama, every player in CSE is a highly-accomplished musician in their own right and is passionate about delivering music of the highest quality to you and your guests.

    We have an extensive repertoire spanning from Classical, Opera, Pop and Jazz to Television and Film theme tunes. We can also take musical requests in advance of your event, so we can cater to your every wish. If you are unsure of which type of ensemble is right for you, we would be happy to advise.

    Having performed together at distinguished venues and events across London for over 6 years, CSE offers a touch of class, elegance and verve, certain to compliment any event. We can be booked in the form of a string quartet, trio or duo. We also regularly perform as an all-female group should this be a preference.

    Excellent! From start (initial contact and enquiry), to finish (performance), City String Ensemble were a pleasure to work with. Sophie was very helpful and accomodating, she also offered a very competitive package, advising what would work in an honest way. She was always prompt with communications, and helped where she could. The team were punctual on the day, and played amazingly, guests loved it! Thanks to the team!

    City String Ensemble was a pleasure to work with for our big day. They were professional from the outset and had a huge choice of songs we could choose from. Anyone thinking of a string quartet or similar for their special day should look no further than these guys. They are brilliant.
