As well as playing together in the quartet, all four members regularly work as freelance musicians providing music for TV & Radio as well as studio recordings for albums. This is in addition to freelance work with orchestras and ensembles such as the Ulster Orchestra.

We specialise in weddings and will work with you to create the perfect atmosphere for your special day. We guarantee a personal service, tailored to your individual requirements. Music can be provided for the ceremony, drinks reception, evening meal or any combination of these.

Our selection of music is extensive, ranging from the more traditional string quartet repertoire of Mozart and Haydn right through to contemporary pop songs and jazz classics. We also are happy to arrange specific pieces of music by request to help you make your special day even more personal.
