About


The Crystal Palace String Quartet was founded by graduates of Britain's top music colleges. Their shared passion for chamber music allowed them to acquire an extensive repertoire and to gain experience in providing live music for all kinds of events, ranging from weddings, civil partnerships, parties and corporate functions to band music, sessions, and TV. Their repertoire ranges from baroque to pop and covers nearly every imaginable genre in between.

The Crystal Palace Quartet mainly play for events in London and the Southeast but are willing to travel anywhere within the UK. They are also active on the concert platform, performing public recitals in London.

Whilst the Crystal Palace Quartet usually performs as a string quartet, they are also able to operate as a string trio or duo (violin plus viola or cello) for smaller events. A duo or trio is suitable for venues where performance space is limited, or if your budget doesn't stretch to a full string quartet.

The quartet is also happy to find or make arrangements of your favourite pieces or songs.

Simply brilliant performance. In difficult windy conditions on an exposed bandstand they performed wonderfully. All four musicians were perfectly turned out, professional and talented. Their performance was highlight of the wedding. Thank you very much.
