Welcome to the Minerva Ensemble string trio
the unique musical trio of oboe, violin and cello

Our musicians play an inspired combination of instruments that create a distinctive sound adding a warm atmosphere to any special occasion. As a Cheshire based string trio, we cover the whole of the North West, including Manchester, Lancashire, Merseyside and Chester.

We also regularly perform at weddings throughout Yorkshire, Shropshire, North Wales and the Lake District.
We regularly play at birthday celebrations, anniversary parties and corporate events as well as being highly experienced wedding musicians. Minerva Ensemble can provide wedding music for your church or civil ceremony, drinks reception or wedding breakfast. We have the experience and flexibility to provide the perfect accompaniment to your day.

Please browse through our repertoire for inspiration and listen to the music we have recorded. Our range includes everything from Handel, Vivaldi and Pachelbel to The Verve, Take That and the Beatles. Please remember that if there is a particular piece of music that is special to you and you don’t see it on our list, then we are more than happy to arrange it for you.

Visit our prices page for more information on our wedding packages and to find out why we are more budget friendly than a string quartet.
