With a fast-growing reputation for lively performances of their modern pop and famous tv/movie theme tunes, they have been the ensemble of choice for many award ceremonies, celebrity parties and special events taking place in and around London and have now set up a sister-ensemble in Los Angeles, California.

Metropolitan Strings prides itself on being able to perform for almost any kind of event, including Jewish, Persian and Indian weddings, large-scale corporate events and private parties. They can also take special music requests and if there is a song that does not already feature on their extensive song list, we can either acquire the pre-existing sheet music or have the song especially arranged by their in-house music arranger.
