"“I will never forget walking into the church with Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams” being played so beautifully – and people still comment on the music to this day! Amati String Quartet were absolute professionals and a pleasure to deal with. I have recommended them to many since." Sophie Veale, married July 2006, Christ Church St Kilda
