"Hi Lara, thank you so much to you and the rest of the quartet. Everyone told me how great the music was and I couldn't agree more. Thank you again - have a lovely weekend! Bronte."

"Morning ladies, now that we're finally back home in the Netherlands, we just wanted to send you a quick message to thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Your performances were INCREDIBLE. Everyone is still talking about how amazing it all was and many of our guests told us afterwards they loved each piece you played and were all working together to decide what it was. Like a music quiz!! Jamie and I had a chat with you all afterwards and you were all so lovely! We even said that had it not been our wedding, we could have listened to you perform all afternoon! I know I probably told you already, but as we were being interviewed at the top of the stairs by the registrar, you started playing Les Mis and I had to stop the interview as I was seriously about to cry. It was that beautiful. Ladies, thank you, so much for your very special and memorable addition to our wonderful day. Anthony & Jamie xx"

"Hi Lara, Now that we have returned to normality, I just wanted to send an email to thank the quartet for playing at our wedding at Newby Hall. The music sounded beautiful and flawless - it really helped to create a lovely atmosphere. We have had many comments from guests about how great the music sounded! We really appreciate your role in our wedding day and it really helped to make it extra special. Many thanks and all the best, Izzy and Tom."

"Working with Lara and the girls in Venus String Quartet has been an absolute pleasure. Having contacted LIPA to enquire about availability of students, Lara from Venus String Quartet, was very prompt in responding with video footage and a bio. The Telegraph Cruise & Travel Show was a two-day event at the Exhibition Centre Liverpool from 10am-5pm on Saturday and 10-4pm on Sunday. As the only string quartet at the event, it was quite demanding on the girls to play across both days with 1-1.5hrs sessions on a tight schedule. Their performances were fantastic and provided our visitors with a relaxing and intimate atmosphere within our Cream Tea Experience. We have received many lovely comments from our visitors since the show, and I would highly recommend Venus String Quartet for any event that requires a classy and sophisticated musical accompaniment."
