Maple Rose Strings, or MRS, was formed in 2017 by veteran freelance violinist Gillian Mott. With her Canadian and British heritage, it only made sense to call the ensemble Maple Rose!
With over 20 years freelancing and 24 years of organizing wedding music between Canada and Europe, you are sure to get the best arrangements and musicians at your event. The core members have studied at top universities and conservatoires in North America and the UK.
Pulling from a global pool of talented musicians and arrangers, Maple Rose musicians are active in the London freelancing scene as well as educating the next generation of budding musicians.
With a large repertoire spanning classical to current hits, the group also has access to some of the top arrangers in London for a bespoke service should you have a special song you would like for your event. MRS can perform as solo, duo, trio, quartet or larger. Want an orchestra? We can do that too!
