About Leos Strings

If you are looking for a top quality music for your wedding day, then look no further. Leos Strings, pronounced Lee-oss, brings together professional players for wedding and other special events. Based in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, they offer a range of ensembles to suit individual requirements. The Leos String Quartet are also available to hire as String Quartet and Soprano.

Experience

Founded in 2008 by cellist Rachel Shakespeare at the Royal Northern College of Music, Leos Strings has worked with important clients such as Manchester City Football Club, The Co-Operative, Bentley Motors, HSBC, Granada ITV and Finnair.

Services offered

The flair they bring to their extensive repertoire from Bach, Gershwin and Muse has seen Leos Strings add a real lift to a wide variety of functions, and their busy schedule speaks for the ecstatic feedback they continue to receive from witnesses of their work. With special arrangements made for requests outside of their repertoire list, and an enviable roster of dynamic, young, professional musicians forming the ensemble, Leos Strings are a must-have for any wedding.

How they work

Their formation also now comes in all shapes and sizes. You can hire them as a string quartet - 2 violins, 1 viola and 1 cello, string trio -2 violins and 1 cello, or string duo - 1 violin and 1 cello, meaning they can suit any budget. This option is only currently available for ceremonies.

    Leo's were brilliant. Made such a difference to the day and got everything completely as we'd asked for. We previewed at the Trafford Centre which was great to be able to hear them live first. Cannot reccomend enough.
