String Quartets and String Trios For Weddings in Scotland
Amici String Quartet - The Icing On The Cake
Quite simply one the BEST professional String Quartets for weddings and functions in Scotland.
Amici (pronounced ameech-chee) are comprised of young, professional musicians who work regularly for BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Scottish Opera, and the Scottish National Orchestra. They are our most popular String Quartet and offer ensemble playing of the highest calibre at very reasonable prices.
When not working with National Orchestras, they specialise in providing background or ceremony music for Weddings or Corporate Events.
As you would expect from a proper ensemble, the Quartet comprises of two Violins, Viola, and Cello. They have a very extensive repertoire which includes classical, ceremonial , operatic, and jazzy. They are very flexible in their approach depending on the type of event and the atmosphere required.
They have worked through The Magic Agency for many years and we can tell you that these guys and girls are fun and absolutely first-class musicians.
For smaller functions, the group can also provide a Trio comprising of two Violins and Cello or a Duo made up of two cellos (or cello with flute, clarinet, or oboe).

Apologies it has taken a few weeks to send this but we wanted to say a very big thank you to yourself and Amici for making our wedding day so special. We wanted to thank you for organising Amici and obviously a big thank you to the musicians as well.
They were absolutely fantastic and all of our guests loved them. It was a shame that we didn't get to speak to them personally but really wanted to express our gratitude to them.
We would 100% recommend the "The Magic Agency" and Amici to all our friends and family.
Thank you and best wishes,"
Louise and Alan McKell wedding, March, 2011
"Just a quick email to say thank you so much for you and the other members of Amici on Saturday. You played so beautifully and we couldn't have asked for anything more! Pity we had to miss your second half...just how these things go...however thanks again, everyone thought you were fantastic!
"To The Magic Agency,
Firstly, Amici played beautifully at the church. They were fantastic and we are really pleased we made the decision to have a string trio.
Rhythm Dot Com were also excellent. We were a little apprehensive a we had only heard them play live briefly, but they completely exceeded our expectations. The dance floor was packed from the start and we had lots of comments from our guests saying how good they were. Some even saying that they were the best band they had heard at a wedding!
So thanks again to you, and the bands. I will have no hesitation in recommending you all in the future."
"The Amici String Quartet combine total professionalism with a pleasant and friendly manner. Their repertoire is extensive and varied, including both classical and light, popular music.
In three hours of playing, no piece was repeated and they were very warmly received by a wide audience
containing a spectrum of musical tastes. This was evident in the frequent, spontaneous applause they
received and the bridegroom's comment that, for him, they were the icing on the cake"
"Helen and the string musicians created a perfect atmosphere in the chapel and played beautifully" Carol Boyd, Wedding in Glasgow, 2004.
"The Amici Trio were fantastic, arrived on time and performed throughout.
They really made our day truly special. Thank you for all your help with
the booking as I don't know if we would have known where to start without
the help of your website."

Help! How do I play these music files?
It's easy! Just double-click on the link and Windows Media Player (or whatever music player you have installed on your PC) should run and start playing the music file within a few seconds. Make sure you have your speakers plugged in and switched on.
If it doesn't start playing, then try pressing the "Start" button on your music player.
If you have a Broadband internet connection (which is very fast), then the music files should play very smoothly straight away.
However, if you have a standard "Dialup" connection (your modem dials up to allow you to make the connection to the internet) then you will find the music file stops and starts all the time. This is because your PC music player is trying to stream or play the music as it downloads to your hard drive but your internet connection isn't fast enough to play the music smoothly.
If that is what is happening to you, then all you have to do is let the music stagger through once (it is downloading as this is happening) and then it will play at full speed after that. You can then listen to the the music file as many times as you want.
Alternatively, you can save the MP3 to your Hard Drive and then play it from there. To save a MP3 to your Hard Drive, right-click on one of the MP3 links below and from the menu choose "Save Target As".
We hope that has helped you. If not, just give us a ring on 0141 577 6604 and we'll talk you through it.
We're here to help you in any way we can.
