London radio show ClassicFM

We’ve just been watching the fantastic cover of Sia’s Chandelier in the Classic FM office, and we absolutely love it! I’m pretty sure our online audience would love it too, so I’m wondering if you’d allow us to host the original video on our Facebook page and on ClassicFM.com? Obviously, you’re used to getting views in the millions, but I’m hoping that Chandelier will do really well if we share on our highly engaged Facebook page – and we’d, of course, tag you and provide links.

Do let me know if you’d be happy to proceed!

Thanks,
Dan

Today Stringspace had a repeat string quartet booking at an intimate birthday party lunch for twelve at The Currant Shed in Adelaide. Our string quartet was asked to do everything the same as last time – same music, same players if possible.

In Brisbane, our strings + flute were at The Princess Theatre in Brisbane to rehearse and perform in a Persian music concert. Our musicians were playing with singer + piano, and along to a backing track.

Here’s some lovely feedback from the show’s musical director:

Hi Lucie

Many thanks indeed for booking the ensemble for tonight’s concert. They are great players, fun to be with and made everything easy.

Best wishes

Sydney Opera House concert series (string quartet)

Today Stringspace had a meeting with the Sydney Opera House to talk through programming and performing 28 concerts coming up in July & August at the Opera House this year. Also, in talks for doing more concerts in 2018. We’re excited!! Love working with the Opera House.

Wednesday 12th April 2017

Recently we added a French Horn, Clarinet, and Percussion to our usual string quartet line up to make an orchestral sound for the Sydney Opera House. Stringspace musicians were hired to trial two acoustic setups over a full day, so final decisions on the new acoustics being installed in the Joan Sutherland Theatre at the Sydney Opera House could be made. Our musicians were then asked to give their preference. They really enjoyed the experience.

The Joan Sutherland Theatre is the home of The Australian Ballet and Opera Australia (previously known as The Opera Theatre), it was such an honour to be asked by the Sydney Opera House’s Director of Performing Arts to provide all the musicians for this landmark decision.

 

Final Fantasy Concert at the Melbourne Recital Centre for Century Entertainment (orchestra)

The concert was of Final Fantasy music and was a big success! We were an 11 piece orchestra – string quintet, guitar/ukulele, flute/piccolo, clarinet, trumpet, percussion/drum kit and piano. Kristian Winther was leading.
