London’s leading female saxophone quartet, the Maricis are four talented musicians who have experience working together in many different genres in the professional field for eight years having been awarded places at London’s most prestigious music conservatoires.
Collectively they have performed live broadcasts on BBC Radio 2 ,3 and ClassicFm, appeared at the BBC Proms, Cheltenham & Edinburgh Festivals as well as prestigious venues such as Purcell and Wigmore Halls.
Alongside this chamber music they perform regularly with orchestras such as the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic & BBC Concert Orchestra.
No strangers to the world of jazz, the girls have performed at jazz festivals from Wigan to Montreaux, with numerous big bands and jazz ensembles, as well as world tours with international pop artists such as Sting & Seal.
With such diverse performing experience between them, Maricis are keen to promote the saxophone quartet as a unique ensemble, capable of performances in all manner of settings.
From when we contacted the Maricis they could not have been more helpful.
They totally understood our requirements concerning the music for the occasion and about how we would like them to vary the volume so that they did not make it difficult for guests to have conversations during the wedding reception.
The admin all went very smoothly (they gave us the insurance that the hotel required) and they were a delight to work with. We would not hesitate to recommend them and would be happy to speak with any future clients who might like to talk with us about hiring the Maricis.
We engaged the Maricis to play live music at our daughters wedding which was held in one of London’s leading hotels.
The girls looked and sounded amazing and all our guests were most impressed and said how much they enjoyed their live music.
We discussed the type of music we wanted but left the selection of the individual pieces to the quartet. They seemed to know exactly what was appropriate and they judged it perfectly with a wide repertoire of jazz and classical music.
We would definitely choose the Maricis to play at any future occasion and have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them.
The girls were absolutely fabulous and the guests at my party were effusive in their praise. For me, they gave a professional performance but managed to add on good humour and a lot of enthusiasm.
Given the conditions at the time, a huge downpour, they could have been forgiven for a lesser performance. In short: marvellous!
