Hello Pascal
 Thank you for your amazing contribution to my wife's birthday. I don't think it could have worked any better than it did. You were great, very mysterious I must say! The idea was to create a memory that worked more effectively than a wrapped up present. I think we did that and more. Thanks for going along with it all, thanks for finding the right place at the right time and thanks for playing when you probably couldn't see a great deal and ...thanks!.                                                                                                                                Best Wishes Josh  Faudel
To Ben, Pascal and The Innocenti Strings,
 "Everyone was very impressed by the whole of your team and the positive effect they had on the evening. Thank for so effectively contributing to what was an excellent evening"
                                                                                            Dr  Richard Thomas, Christmas ball, December 2006



Presentation was just perfect. Their quality was more than I expected and the cost was moderate. We both were totally happy and choosing the Innocenti Strings  Quartet was a very successful part of our wedding.
                                                                                                Robert Chow, Wedding, July 2007
