ANU UniLodge Campus Ball (string quartet)

On behalf of UniLodge @ ANU I am emailing to thank you and your team at Stringspace for providing us with such beautiful music last night at our ball.

This was the first time we have had a string quartet play at such a big and important function, and after last night I am confident that it will not be our last. Many guests commented on how professional the quartet were and on their amazing performance. We are so grateful that you were able to play for us, and I look forward to more events with Stringspace in the future. Please also pass my thanks on to the members of the string quartet.

Kindest regards,

Georgina

This is just a little note to say thank you for all of your assistance prior to our event, and to thank the musicians who made up the talented string quartet on Saturday night. The music was beautiful and exactly the right thing to set off the exquisite meal and gorgeous flowers.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank them again for staying on after the scheduled time, we were running fairly late, and it would have left a bit of gap if the musicians had left early, so thank you again.

With best wishes,
Corinna

Our latest Stringspace film clip has just been favourited on twitter by its composer – Desmond Childs. Desmond Childs has written a huge number of massive hit songs (over 70 songs in the top 40) including “Livin’ On A Prayer” & “Livin’ La Vida Loca”. I Was Made For Lovin’ You was his first major hit.

So that happened.

Saturday 31st January 2015

Here’s a little blog entry from Pete about the wedding he performed at today:

Actually, it was kinda special in that…

Under the shade of a small willow tree, Lily and Peter were positioned so in every turn of the head there was something to savour; behind them, the sweeping vines growing the grapes used to create famous Mornington Peninsula wines. These wines were then served at the reception in the restaurant, which sat to the left of Lily and Peter. On the right was a tranquil lake, with families of ducks floating past. Together these views served as the frame for the beautiful wedding ceremony of Lisa and Matthew on Saturday afternoon.

Aside from this, it was a pretty straight forward gig.
