Hello and welcome to the Athena Strings Blog! Here we hope to give you lots of musical inspiration for your event, be it a wedding, party or function. We’ll keep you up to date with all our musical adventures and give you a true insight into life in a string quartet. We’ll share all our plans and ideas with you and let you get a good look at us behind the scenes in rehearsals, meetings and music making. Most importantly, this blog is for you, so if there’s anything you would like to hear about, please let us know!

To kick us off, we’d love to share our favourite song of the moment with you. After the release of the live action Beauty and the Beast we were inspired to play through all of our Disney favourites. There is nothing more beautiful than the viola melody and gorgeous string colours in our arrangement of the theme – Tale as Old as Time. This is such a popular song with brides and grooms as there is no way you can hear our quartet play it and not have a tear in your eye. It’s perfect for the entrance of the bride, whilst you’re signing the register or during your drinks reception.

Having a Disney themed wedding? We’d love to know! Our set list is always expanding and contains many other Disney classics such as Aladdin, Hercules and the Lion King.

Lots of love,
