, Wedding, Chantry Mill, West Sussex

The guys were superb! They were flexible and professional and an absolute delight to hear play. They nailed my request for tracks and even played the bride down the aisle. Such an incredible addition to our celebration. Thank you for everything!

, Wedding, Buckinghamshire

Me and my husband were delighted to have them for our wedding day! Despite the strong wind outside, they managed to play beautifully. All of our guests were amazed and we are very grateful. Also, we wanted one specific piece of music for the entrance and them to play whilst I had a friend signing and they agreed without issue and were very accommodating.

, Wedding, Lewes Castle, East Sussex

The Hyde Park String Quartet's contribution to our wedding ceremony was simply perfect. How I wish we had a recording or video of them all through it. They accommodated our every wish, including playing a range of classical pieces and humorous television themes, plus a superb arrangement created by themselves of a piece not previously in the quartet repertoire, also specially requested by us. They were great to deal with too, and I cannot recommend them highly enough.

, Wedding, Hertfordshire

My new wife and I arrived at our wedding venue to be greeted by our guests and the fabulous music being played by the string quartet. A couple of weeks before the wedding I was asked what music the guys had to play... I had no idea! So, I let the quartet play whatever the seemed appropriate. Their choice was incredible! Every guest said their music was beautiful. Catherine and I could not agree more. Thanks guys, you were amazing.

, Funeral, Surrey

Very professional and you selected appropriate music for us which fitted the bill well. Thank you.

, Birthday Party, Surrey

Thank you for arranging The Hyde Park String Quartet to play at my wife's 50th birthday garden party last Saturday. Everything went very smoothly and the music fitted perfectly into the occasion. Please pass on my thanks to the artists, and we wish them and yourselves every success for the future.

, Wedding, Surrey

THe Hyde Park String Quartet were amazing at our wedding. They played a great selection of songs and provided the perfect atmosphere to the drinks reception at our wedding.

, Wedding, Norfolk

Fantastic, highly recommended. Very professional, couldn't have asked for better.

The quartet has provided music for functions in venues including Althorp, Claridges, the London Ritz, Highclere Castle and Pinewood Studios where guest lists have included the Princess Royal, Cleo Laine, Lord Sainsbury, Pavarotti, Bob Geldof, Keith Richards, Steve Redgrave, David Gower and Boy George. The UK premiere of the Hollywood movie The Royal Tenenbaums, the re-launches of O2 and Audos, the corporate event organisers, as well as the magazine Men’s Health’s search for a new cover model all saw The Hyde Park String Quartet providing the music.

Alongside its concert work, The Hyde Park String Quartet has a foothold in every other field of entertainment.

They perform for corporate events, weddings and other private functions, playing in hotels, Banqueting and Livery halls, homes stately and not so stately, and have made several TV appearances. In 1995, Des O'Connor invited them to perform on his Central Television network peak-time show Pot of Gold.

At the 2003 opening of Andrew Lloyd Webber's collection of Pre-Raphaelites at the Royal Academy of Arts, the BBC Arts Correspondent, Rosie Millard, was so taken with The Hyde Park String Quartet that she began her 10 o' clock News report with their performance of Stairway to Heaven. Caribbean and P & O chose The Hyde Park String Quartet as opening entertainment at the launch, in the presence of the Princess Royal, of their flagship Adonia, as well as entertaining guests at a charity ball aboard the Aurora and a subsequent Caribbean cruise aboard the Arcadia.

As Britain’s first and foremost ‘crossover’ string quartet, The Hyde Park String Quartet is the String Quartet with its own distinctive style. As well as playing music of the great composers, it has a unique library of sparkling arrangements of all kinds of popular music from Monteverdi to Madonna.

The idea of this classical line-up playing modern tunes delights audiences of all ages and walks of life. As a result, the schedule now embraces concerts, all kinds of function (The Hyde Park String Quartet has performed at over 1,350 weddings in their 34-year history), plus entertaining in hotels, restaurants and cruiseliners.

The Hyde Park String Quartet's standard fee incorporates 3 sets of 50 minutes in a 3-hour period.
