About the Mayfair Mints

The Mayfair Mints are an experienced  group of classically trained professional singers who give high quality, stylishly engaging performances at private parties, corporate events, weddings and other important occasions.

Our choice of music is selected to reflect the tone of each event, so we first provide a personal consultation to establish the aims of your occasion and the types of guest, and decide a suitable set of music. Through this consultation, you can be sure that your event will be a delightful and memorable occasion.

The Mayfair Mints have been carefully hand-picked by mezzo-soprano Leonora Dawson-Bowling. We usually perform as a quintet or an octet but can take requests for smaller or larger groups into consideration. Between us, we have studied across the various UK music colleges and performed at exclusive venues including the Ritz Hotel, Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle and Fortnum and Mason.

Beyond the fine quality of our vocal production, the Mayfair Mints all have that little extra something that makes us perfect for the different requirements of important occasions:

  • Versatility – we can switch easily between beautiful blended choral singing, large solo numbers, and light jazz arrangements and show tunes
  • Communication and personality – we perform with a true sense of zest, emotion and communication which engages our audiences (but we are also happy to provide low key background music that adds subtle ambience to the occasion)
  • Positive, practical mindset – we understand that you want the maximum of quality with the minimum of fuss. We’ll turn up, perform exquisitely and glamorously, whilst calmly getting on with the practicalities behind the scenes so you can have the confidence to focus where your energy is needed and, more to the point, enjoy the occasion unfolding.

 

The music

We have a large and diverse repertoire of music that we would be delighted to perform at your event. We are also open to particular requests – an old favourite, a piece with particular meaning or a unique especially composed piece.

Our repertoire includes:

  • Madrigals
  • ‘Light’ classical
  • ‘Traditional’ classical
    (Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, Romantic, 20th Century and Contemporary)
  • Opera
  • Jazz arrangements
  • Show tune arrangements
  • Humorous songs
  • Unique bespoke piece*

*We can write and perform humorous, sentimental or promotional piece of music about a guest of honour, organisation or product. These personal pieces always have a huge positive response from guests.

See our sample repertoire list for more details.

No-commitment consultation

If you are interested in finding out more about using us for your event, we offer an initial no-commitment 10- to 15-minute personal consultation by phone. Simply fill in the contact form. We will then be in touch to arrange this consultation which we will use to gain a sense of your requirements.

Every event is different. So we will discuss your event and establish your vision for it and how we can best match it within our wide-ranging repertoire. We will give you a sense of possible styles and pieces we would perform to enhance your occasion, consider the likely length of the performance, if the music is background or a centre-stage performance and whether you would like a bespoke piece written, as well as discussing the practicalities of the event setting.

It may be that you already have a strong idea of the music you would like. It may be that you just want to add some stylish sophistication to your event but don’t want to be weighed down with details – you just want to tell us briefly about the event and then confidently leave us to provide the final polished musical product without another thought.

When we’ve established your requirements and outlined a programme which fits well with your vision, we can confirm our quote for the event.

Booking us

If you continue on to book us, once the contract is signed and deposit received, we provide a further consultation (by phone or in person) as needed to establish any final specifics and practicalities. We will reconfirm the details in writing, leaving you confident everything will run beautifully smoothly.
