"Just wanted to thank you once again for making our special day really sparkle. We really appreciated your help in choosing the perfect classical music for our ceremony and the jazz/pop for our reception.

We received so many complements on how stunning and professional you both were, as well as how beautiful the music was. We were ever so grateful that you were one element of our chaotic wedding day that we did not have to worry about.

We will be sure to recommend you to anyone who is looking for a unique and sophisticated touch to a special occasion."

Ken & Kelly Smith, Wilmslow.

"Listening to The Arioso Cello Duo made the hairs on the back of my neck tingle. Beautiful music, performed by two outstanding and gorgeous musicians."

Guy Garvey, Lead Singer, Elbow.

"We didn’t realize two cellos could be so versatile. The sound you made was rich and moving. We were thrilled to have found you at the last minute; you are just that little bit more interesting than a bog-standard string quartet!”

Mrs G. Evans, Buxton.
