The performance went down a storm. And it featured a storm too, with each member of the string quartet, right down to the electric cellist, soloing in Vivaldi’s tempestuous Summer from the Four Seasons.
The event organiser was delighted – the first notes played by the electric violinists in the 30-minute sound check left him with goosebumps!
The performance by Spectre Strings was the highlight of a networking event. The high impact electric show, suitable for corporate events, features Avicii’s Wake Me Up, Palladio and, of course, the grand Rocky-style entrance choreographed in boxing robes!
And Spectre’s founder, violinist David Giardino, has been busy with his wedding string quartet too. The week began gently with two performances by the violin and cello duo. The first event was an office party in London needing a sophisticated musical backdrop. The second was more romantic… Electric string quartet london available for corporate events.
The duo were asked to serenade a New York couple in London’s Green Park on the occasion of their first wedding anniversary. The musicians sprung a surprise on the couple, waiting until they sat nearby on one of the park benches before revealing the instruments and breaking into a concert of love-themed music. The day was cold, but the performance ended warmly, with the couple dancing to Elvis Presley’s Can’t Help Falling in Love in the middle of the park.
The weekend was full up with music making too. Giardino Strings has a strong reputation for specialising in Jewish wedding music, and the musicians were invited to perform for a sumptuous wedding at London’s Dorchester Hotel. The group of four violinists, viola and cello played for over 400 guests, and were even joined by a singer for a rousing finale. What a party!
The previous day, the versatile ensemble had performed as a string quartet at a traditional English wedding ceremony.
