Custom Musical Arrangements

If you can't find what you are looking for on our list, and if you are unable to source suitable parts yourself, we would be happy to arrange music ourselves. As a professional arranger and music copyist, Pete has worked for, amongst others, the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, and Jonathan Mills, director of the Edinburgh International Festival.

As a result, our own works are of an extraordinarily high standard, and can be commissioned to provide even more of a sense of occasion to our performance at your event. Where other groups might be content to play from piano scores or similar on no rehearsal, we recognise the importance of good arrangements, both from a customer's perspective and from that of our own satisfaction as performers!
