Kensington Ensemble Reviews
Helped add a real touch of class to our party! Loved hearing my favourite pop tunes such as Simon and Garfunkel in this string setting. They were very flexible in their organisation prior to the party, and were able to set up comfortably in our living room. The playing itself exceeded my expectations - beautiful!
