Portable, weatherproof and audible across large distances, we are able to present a large selection of serious classical music to light, jazzy numbers suitable to be adapted to any outdoor occasion.

Sounds interesting? We’ve played at intimate garden parties to large outdoor events and would be more than happy to advise you on how the group could be involved. Please get in touch here.
