The Lensbury Hotel
June 2013 saw USO take over the Lensbury Hotel, Teddington throughout the day and evening for an annual event for their members, and is a perfect example of us being able to provide a complete music service for your day. By utilizing our excellent orchestra members, we were able to provide a whole host of music, meeting the exact needs of the event.
Upon guests’ entrance, a saxophonist performed in the foyer a selection of bespoke, beautiful music. This was followed by our Best of British Set, featuring songs such as Wonderwall by Oasis, and Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody.
The following hour featured a Solo Classical Violin set in the Lensbury’s Englesuite by one of our leading male violinists.
We then concurrently performed a Chill Out duo and Chill Out solo violin performance in two different rooms, enabling guests to enjoy the beautiful music wherever they were situated.
After this part of the evening, a new ensemble of our musicians then donned aprons and masqueraded as waiting staff for guests during dinner, who were seated at musically-themed tables:
Our Orchestral Flash Mob then delighted the Lensbury’s guests with their surprising rendition of Ravel’s Bolero, for which the table centerpieces were put to a somewhat more practical use. One by one, instruments were plucked from the tables as musicians joined in the unique performance.
We also put together a unique Chill Out Set, performed to guests outside on the lawn. Our quartet played tracks such as Coldplay’s Viva La Vida, and Beet 5, to which there were synchronized pyrotechnics, produced by a specialist company we liaised with specially for the occasion.
We rounded off the evening with our Mini Little Big Band, featuring our male vocalist Leo, who recently appeared on The Voice.
After liaising so closely with the Events Team to create a unique evening of entertainment, Urban Soul Orchestra have been appointed as preferred suppliers at The Lensbury Hotel.
