The Mallard Oboe Trio, Con Alma, and the Violin and Piano Duo, each have extensive experience of playing for drinks receptions and dinners at major venues.
The Mallard Oboe Trio have played several times at The Guildhall, London at both lunchtime and evening events.

We have been providing the music for product launches, art exhibitions and gallery openings, award ceremonies, drink receptions and Annual Dinners for many years with lots of repeat bookings.
Our Repertoire spans over 400 years and encompasses Bach and Handel through to the latest West-End shows.
Many of the arrangements from our ‘lighter’ pad have been especially commissioned from leading jazz musicians and our programme of music will be tailored to the needs of your event.
Whether you are planning an afternoon tea, press presentation / product launch or an evening drinks reception, our stylish duo will look and sound great!
The violin and piano duo works well for formal dinners too. However, for larger events please bear in mind that some amplification may be necessary.
Con Alma is ideal for small venues and gatherings.
With a variety of guitars in conjunction with both the oboe and the deeper, richer sounding cor anglais, a beautiful spectrum of sound colours and various types of music may be heard - baroque sonatas, classical pops, French romances, South American rhythms, jazz standards, the Beatles, West End musicals: we have it all!
Two Oboes and Cor Anglais will add pizzazz to your special event!
Alec Coburn and Laura Manning - beautiful music for guitar and oboe!
