Northlights is an established string quartet with a ten year history of performing at weddings, corporate events and private parties. All members are professional musicians.
Northlights can provide a varied programme of music to suit any occasion, from classical, light and popular pieces. Wedding music can be tailored to suit a church wedding, civil ceremony, drinks reception or wedding breakfast.
All members of the Northlights are professionally trained experienced musicians, with many years experience of playing with the finest British orchestras, including the Hallé, BBC Philharmonic, Liverpool Philharmonic, Opera North, Northern Ballet, Northern Chamber Orchestra, Welsh Chamber Orchestra, Manchester Camerata, Scottish Ballet and English National Ballet. In addition they are involved in teaching and educational workshops as well as a variety of freelance and studio work.
Over the years they have played at all types of events large and small, garden parties, charity events, campaign launches and conferences. Many bookings are for weddings and the quartet has a wealth of experience in working with clients to help them make decisions on music and helping them to make their day perfect. Weddings can be personalised by the choice of music and the quartet is always willing to help and advise on choosing music.
Although many of the clients who engage the quartet request light background music the members of the quartet are delighted when requested to play the more substantial classical works for string quartet and are happy to undertake more formal engagements and recitals.
“Your arrangement of Romance [Beethoven] was perfect. All the guests commented on how much they loved the music. It really created the atmosphere that we wanted. We had such a perfect day, it was the best day of our lives.”
Miranda and Simon, Goldsborough Hall, Knaresborough - 30 May 2009
