Pocket Proms

Performing live, 5 world class musicians recreate the magic of the proms

The Stanford Quartet have been playing their Bridge Golden Tasman instruments for a couple of years now. When they first came to us we were just developing the range so their professional demands and experience helped us to shape and develop the sound to fulfill all their musical requirements! At the time they were playing in the Opera Show and The Abba show, both requiring an amplified full bodied string section playing to large audiences, but from only a quartet of players. We're all really pleased with the results, and its always a real buzz to hear them play.
