Our Repertoire

The STATUS CYMBAL approach to popular music is both refreshing and adventurous. From the beginning, it commissioned works from some of Britain's finest string arrangers, so that its unrivalled library now extends from Monteverde to Madonna via Bach, Mozart, Strauß, Gershwin, Bernstein, Duke Ellington, the Beatles, Abba, the Carpenters, Led Zeppelin, Radiohead and Queen, to name but a few. The haunting and the beautiful, the lively, the tearful, the passionate and the humorous, all can be heard in a STATUS CYMBAL performance. Variety, originality and entertainment are its watchwords.

We can re-make any song you like, enquire about a booking or contact us:

Review

"Thank you very much for giving us such an enjoyable and certainly 'different' concert on Saturday. It was gratifying to see that the publicity had attracted several new punters, which was exactly what we had hoped for when we invited you to play to us... there was definitely something for everyone."
