Act Profile

Golden Strings

Golden Strings have performed for many well-established artists and venues, both within the UK and internationally, and were chosen to compose and perform a modern symphony for strings and voice on BBC television. They are constantly in demand to perform at events ranging from weddings and corporate functions to parties, recordings and television appearances.

Having played for the Man Booker Prize Awards, the Monte Carlo Television Festival and the National Music Awards in London, Golden Strings are highly experienced at performing for all kinds of events, and are dedicated to ensuring that their programme creates the perfect atmosphere for your guests. Golden Strings have performed recitals aboard Holland America' s and Cunard' s luxury cruise ships; at prestigious venues such as the Grosvenor House and Hilton on Park Lane hotels; and at Westminster Abbey. Apollo have also been invited to perform alongside a host of well-known popular artists, such as Jesse J, Enya, Leona Lewis and Andrea Bocelli.

All Golden Strings artists have been classically trained at respected conservatoires and are renowned for their stunning attention to appearance and detail.

Golden Strings have a wide and varied repertoire, incorporating classical, opera, jazz and pop, and are dedicated to helping you find the perfect music for your event. They are happy to search for music that is not on their current repertoire lists, and can even offer to arrange music that is not in print. They have arranged music by artists such as Snow Patrol, Robbie Williams, The Beatles and The Feeling, and have built up an enviable reputation for performing arrangements of such modern classics.

Weddings

They have an extensive repertoire from which to choose, ranging from classical to pop, and are happy to discuss repertoire ideas to ensure the perfect event.
