Kaleidoscope Palm Court Trio

 

Kaleidoscope Palm Court Trio at Goodwood

Kaleidoscope Palm Court Trio continue to entertain audiences at concerts, dinners, wedding receptions and private events around the southern counties of Hampshire, Surrey, Dorset, Berkshire, Sussex & London. The Palm Court Trio perform a number of specially arranged pieces, delivering the perfect musical accompaniment to your special event.

At one time all the Grand Hotels would have a resident Palm Court Trio or Salon Orchestra, usually performing during afternoon tea or dinner in the restaurant. The Palm Court Orchestra, Trio or Salon Orchestra would also have been required to provide suitable repertoire for after dinner dancing: waltzes, foxtrots, two-steps and even the Charleston were among the favourites of Hotel residents. Our Palm Court Trio continues to perform nostalgic music with the addition of recent film tracks, music from the London Shows and well known classical favourites. We provide an electric portable keyboard for use at venues without a suitable piano.

Recent performances have taken place in many well loved historic venues, concert halls and stately homes within the southern counties of England. We also perform overseas and often available for short cruise ship tours.

As well as many concert performances and appearances in television documentaries, the Kaleidoscope Palm Court Trio can often be heard broadcast on BBC Radio 3.

“Thank you very much for the music at our daughter’s wedding ceremony and reception last Saturday. It was excellent! My father particularly enjoyed the overture to ‘Pirates of Penzance’ as he was a member of a Savoyards group when he was younger. The choice and performance by the Kaleidoscope Palm Court Trio were both superb. Fortunately, we only have one daughter, otherwise we’d look no further for music if we had another wedding day to organise. We would have no hesitation in recommending kaleidoscope to others.” Kaleidoscope Palm Court Trio at Chewton Glen, New Forest, Hampshire
