The Thackeray String Trio or Quartet will provide relaxing background music, suitable for any event. We can also perform as a string duo.
The string trio consists of three players: violin, viola and cello. As in the string quartet, we are highly experienced professional musicians, based in the North West.
You might choose to book the string trio because of space restrictions or perhaps you maybe it is more affordable for your budget.
We can play a similar range of Repertoire to the string quartet and is a popular choice in smaller venues.
In addition to our trio work, we play with the region's top orchestras such as Halle, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, BBC Philharmonic, Opera North and Northern Chamber Orchestra. We have worked in West End shows, toured throughout the UK and have appeared as backing musicians in bands for artistes such as Katherine Jenkins, Russell Watson, Hayley Westenra, Texas and for the Strictly Come Dancing Tour.
Our playing is versatile and we perform a huge variety of music, ranging from Classical favourites to Swing, Tangos, Beatles and a growing selection of Popular songs including: One Day Like This (Elbow), You're Beautiful (James Blunt), Game of Thrones Theme, Songbird (Eva Cassidy), A Million Love Songs (Take That) and many more. The selection is always increasing and the quartet is happy to perform music of your choice.
The string trio can be hired to perform inside a venue or – weather permitting – outside in the gardens.
