In 2011, the duo was passed from founders Andrew Adams and Chris Hurn to their colleague Daniel Burrowes. Andrew and Chris decided that the large number of commitments required by the group exceeded their current availability, and that they wished to explore other areas of music. The group is fortunate that many highly regarded colleagues have arranged popular music specially for Two Cellos - including Alan Cohen, who writes for the BBC, the National Youth Jazz Orchestra and Deutsche Radio, to name just a few. Specialising originally in music for weddings, Two Cellos are enjoying the opportunities of the modern musical landscape, bringing the versatility and vibrance of youth to as many forms of performance as possible.

You were amazing! You really helped make the ceremony special and everyone commented on how great the music was. You kept people on the dancefloor all night and lots of those at the reception mentioned how amazing you were. You helped make our day exactly like how we wanted it to be.
A very happy and entertaining group, who kept our guests entertained all afternoon with popular classics and 60s and 70s music. I particularly liked the way they wandered round the garden among the guests. The volume was just right so the guests could talk as well if they needed to. Highly recommended.
City String Ensemble played on our wedding day on the 23 September at the Church and Reception. They played the exact music we wanted and nothing was too much trouble for them. The music sounded incredible and all our guests said how amazing they were. thank you so much City String Ensemble. Georgia and Matt x
