  1. Mr & Mrs Catrell’s Wedding

    I have sung your praises… I was so impressed with the professionalism of the playing, the fab customer service and communication and attention to detail. You truly contributed to making our day special.

  2. Sandie Martyn – Museum Performance

    We asked the Melegari String Quartet to play for three events at the museum – all with the same theme but with different audiences. The quartet were remarkable! They understood exactly what we wanted, met all our requirements, were sweet and charming and of course – best of all – they played superbly. We couldn’t recommend them more highly.

  3. Jane Williams

    The Melegari String Quartet are captivating, a joy to listen to and foremost in my recommendations.

  4. Jane’s Wedding Reception

    Thank you so much for the beautiful music you played at our wedding reception – from what we heard after you arrived it was beautiful and I’m glad you saved Bitter Sweet Symphony and A Day Like This until the end!!
