Spring Update and new mobile App from Capriccio Quartet

Spring has arrived, and the sniff of summer is in the air too. We are so blessed with the weather and have been able to start playing outside, although on a few occasions we did have to layer up! Capriccio Quartet has been playing at some lovely events and weddings recently, which we have thoroughly enjoyed. This is a busy time of year for us and in April we had a staggering seven events and [...]

Bredon Manor, wedding fayre and Theo Paphitis

In February we had a wonderful month, playing live at weddings, special occasions, a wedding fayre at the beautiful Bredon Manor and even for Theo Paphitis! On Friday 25th February Capriccio Quartet performed live for the #SBS Small Business Sunday winners in Birmingham. The event had been postponed from 2021 because of COVID, which meant that there were a staggering 3,500 #SBS winners by the time the event went ahead. More than 1000 of them [...]

A great start to 2022 for Capriccio Quartet

As we come to the end of January, we are reflecting on how well the start of 2022 has been for us. January can often be associated with the January Blues, failed resolutions and being a long month. Thankfully, we have not experienced many of these (so far!). We have been lucky enough to have played some wonderful corporate events this month – a Masquerade Ball in The Guildhall was a particular high light. We dressed up in [...]

Getting into the festive spirit with our string quartet

We started our Christmas celebrations a little earlier this year, playing some wonderful Christmas string music for our new video. It was an early start for Capriccio Quartet to get everything we needed together and travel down to our host for the day, Pauntley Court in Gloucestershire. This unique country house set in the beautiful countryside of the Cotswolds is a stunning venue for our Christmas themed video. The morning was full of energy, Bespoke Flowers by Hanna [...]

July wedding music bookings & award

This month has been incredibly busy for the quartet with a record number of weddings, many of which had been postponed at least once during the past 16 months. We are so grateful to our couples for keeping our bookings with them and we understand how difficult and stressful it must have been to have to rearrange their dates. We have had the pleasure of playing for three lovely church wedding services in Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Shropshire [...]

Filming on Chase End Hill

We had the pleasure of taking part in a promo film organised by the excellent team from Conteur who had already filmed us playing “Chandelier” at Birtsmorton Court in May. They decided that the film could be concluded at the top of Chase End Hill and the climb up there was most certainly worth it for the amazing sunset that evening! We’re very excited to see the results in due course. [...]

June wedding music bookings

Our first booking for wedding music this month was at the beautiful St Michael and All Angels in the picturesque Herefordshire village of Bodenham. This was the first church wedding we played at since March 2020 and the service was very moving indeed, in spite of the absence of sung hymns. The next day found us at Barns & Yard, the most lovely wedding venue at Hanley Swan just outside of Malvern to play [...]
