We had two of the Quartet play for us at a formal work event in September. They were fantastic and provided the perfect background music for our drinks reception. A great choice of music too.

“Dear Morag & Marcus, Steve and I wanted to write to say a massive thank you for the brilliant music that you provided for our wedding at The Yair on 29th June (2019). You helped to make a special day for us both even more magical than we had ever hoped.

The quartet provided the perfect backdrop as our guests gathered and everyone was blown away with the two pieces that Marcus (Marcus Swietlicki Tenor) performed…..I then got to hear some of the quartet which was just beautiful….

Thank you both for your important part in creating what was a truly amazing day for us. Everything worked perfectly and there was such a feeling of love and happiness it was overwhelming. The whole event ended up far exceeding all our hopes and expectations. Thank you so very much”

Hi Morag,This is just a short email to thank you immensely for the absolutely superb performance at Ratho Parish Church on Saturday. The success of a wedding relies so much on background music and “The Quartet” certainly excelled in that regard.Personally, Gill and I missed out somewhat as our arrival, by dint of normal bride and father custom and practice, occurred in the late stages of your performance. However, our guests spoke very highly indeed of your presence and delivery and raved of how the quality enhanced a momentous occasion. Morag, once again, many thanks for helping to make Gill and Jamie’s wedding such a huge success. Best wishes for the continuing success of “The Quartet” and the enjoyment that goes with it.

"Dear Morag,
Thank you so much for the beautiful music you and the Quartet provided for our wedding. It perfectly complemented our ceremony and gave our reception the sense of a really special occasion. It was lovely to have your advice on choosing the music and from our perspective everything went seamlessly on the day so thank you for helping to make that happen and for giving us a wonderful day!
Best wishes,
Kate and Chris"
