For an extra special touch to your occasion the quartet are also able to arrange specific requests.
Bath String Quartet can provide musicians for weddings, concerts, corporate functions, military dinners, charity fundraising events, funerals, film work, educational music workshops and session musicians. In fact, as well as having experience in all of the above, they are available for any other event requiring live music!
The Bath String Quartet players are all well-established musicians from the Bath area who provide high quality music. Due to the popularity and success of the original group, the quartet is now able to provide more than one quartet in a day. The quartet as a whole is a member of the Guild of Professional Wedding Services, and all musicians have been auditioned for their positions. The majority of players are music graduates, and those who are not, have proven their worth over many years, playing in local ensembles from Bath Philharmonia to Bath Baroque. Whichever combination of musicians is provided for your event they will be of the highest quality.
Music can range from stylish and elegant classical music for your formal dinner to livelier jazz and ragtime for evening dances. The quartet is happy to arrange special requests given sufficient notice and may even theme music for your event. Whatever your event or required programme of music, the quartet is always happy to discuss your individual requirements.
Besides weddings, the Bath String Quartet is able to perform at public concerts and organised events, offering formal concerts of ‘serious’ quartet repertoire, lighter entertainment concerts of ‘classical pops’ or even a ‘Jazz, Swing & Ragtime’ evening.
A string quartet can create a relaxing atmosphere which will provide the perfect accompaniment to your business event, whether it be for a product launch, as background atmosphere for your client dinner or as a show piece ‘concert’ to entertain guests.

Excellent service from the company. They made it very easy. The Quartet were excellent and many of our guests commented on the fact the music was perfect for a garden party and added to the overall ambience. They have such an eclectic mix of music and the pieces they chose were perfect for the occasion.
