Hire our String Duo or String Quartet for your Residential Home or Retirement Village event!

The Cotswold Ensemble's String Duo and String Quartet are pleased to provide live classical music and classic pop music arrangements for tea parties and other special events at Care Homes, Residential Homes, Retirement Villages etc.

Many frail and infirm elderly people really miss being able to go to concerts. We know that hearing a golden-oldie tune can re-awaken memories and words, and that hearing live music can soothe people with failing memories. Visitors and carers benefit too!

We can play to a seated audience (introducing the music if requested), or provide background music at a party (summer garden party or indoors year round).

We have a medley of Christmas Carols and arrangements of Christmas Songs to play at Christmas parties - and if anyone starts singing along, so much the better!

We are professionally-trained and qualified classical musicians based in the Cotswolds & Oxford & surrounding counties, and we are happy to travel further afield.
