Hi Lucie – I just wanted to ask you to pass on my thanks and admiration to Vanessa and the rest of the string quartet that played at my wedding at the National Museum of Australia on Saturday night. They did such a wonderful job – absolutely exceeding my expectations (and I am a regular CSO goer, so I knew what to expect) – and many, many people commented on how brilliant they sounded in the space.

Many thanks,
Camilla and Matt

Lovely testimonial today for our Solo Violinist performing at Florentino’s earlier this month | Monday 31st May 2021

Dear Lucie and Phoebe,

Thank You! We are just now coming back down to earth after a fabulous weekend, culminating in the evening at Grossi Florentino, which we had jokingly taken to calling “the Gala” during the lead-up weeks. Yes, Phoebe, you are right but too modest, as we feel everything went better than “really well”. Your performance and Lucie’s expert arrangements lifted the evening to “really wonderful”!

Phoebe, it was a pleasure to meet you, and your playing was gorgeous. The classical and contemporary pieces set the romantic tone we hoped to create in that lovely setting. Rod and I chuckled again over the “Remember Me” piece because the score itself was so unremarkable and yet between Lucie’s rearrangement and your playing, it took on a  whimsical sophistication that sounded charming, and ‘We Are Gentlemen of Japan’ just blew us all away!

We knew from our previous experience with Stringspace that we were in for another great experience, and so it was!  Now we are just thinking how fortunate we were to have our special event before the lockdown and wish you all well there.

We look forward to the next chance we get to engage Stringspace. Meantime we’re busy singing your praises to anyone asking about Our Weekend!

Thanks again for everything.

Kind regards,
Marilyn & Rod

Hi Lucie,

Thank you so much for arranging the String Trio for our dinner last Friday.

The musicians, Helena, Matt, and Julia were absolutely wonderful and were very well-received by the guests.

I wondered if I could also enquire about a solo harpist to perform for our next exhibition event for a champagne breakfast. 

Many thanks again,

Alex

Dear Lucie,

I just wanted to thank you again for bringing together such an incredibly talented group of musicians for last night’s event.

They really completed the evening and transported us all to the ballet. I am in absolute awe of each and every one of them. Please pass on our appreciation and thanks.

Thank you for being so collaborative and giving up your evening (your birthday) to support us. I’m truly grateful.

I look forward to collaborating with you on the next event and I’ll be sure to share some images with you once we receive them from the photographer.

Kindest regards,

CHANEL VIPs attended this glamorous event, editors of Vogue, AFR, T Magazine, Marie Claire, WISH, and members of the Australian Ballet, including their current director David Hallberg.

Good morning Lucie,

A big thank you to your excellent quartet. Everyone was mesmerized with the beautiful pieces they played. I was glad to choose popular tunes as everybody was humming (and dancing) with the music.

Very professional and friendly with the utmost professionalism.

I am so happy that I made the correct choice with Stringspace.

All the best to all of you.

Best regards,

Geneth Costa
