We are a vibrant, professional string quartet based in Bournemouth, Dorset. We have played at hundreds of weddings, given performances in several established recital series in Dorset, as well as many churches, theatres and festivals in the south of England. Corporate Entertainment clients include FORD, Carnival Cruises, John Lewis and HSBC. As individuals, we attended the top London Music Colleges, have recorded and worked with acts such as Girls Aloud, Jamiroquai and One Direction, and have played with orchestras such as the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, and the Auckland Chamber Orchestra, New Zealand.
