A huge repertoire pop, classical or baroque - the choice is yours!
Akina Strings has worked hard to build a diverse musical repertoire to draw from that spans almost 500 years of eclectical musical history from Elizabethan Motets to modern artists such as Frank Sinatra and Adele. This allows the group to tailor performances to any event, and any musical taste with a little input from the client. Our musicians all have many years of musical experience playing live events from appearing with Kanye West to recording with Katherine Jenkins to performing for celebrities such as George and Amal Clooney and guests and royalty including HRH the Duke of Edinburgh.
We are also experienced hands at arranging cover versions of songs for your event by request (extra fee chargeable) should you have a specific piece of music in mind for your event. Akina String's members have gained a wealth of experience performing at a range of events and celebrations and are equally at home performing to a small intimate wedding party or a Banquet Hall full of guests or on the concert platform so you can be assured that whatever the occasion, your special day is in the best of hands. We have a strong philosophy of placing you the client at the centre of our work, so with this in mind one of the groups members will work with you, from your initial enquiry until the event itself to plan and select beautiful music for those key moments during your event.
The group requires a completed booking form with confirmed venues and timings along with a small deposit to reserve a date. Contracts are provided for all engagements to ensure clarity and a professional service for you.
