Read on for the most comprehensive guide to booking a String Quartet, including how much a String Quartet costs, exactly what they will do at your event, plus tips, advice and information to help make your event one to remember!

When you hire a String Quartet, you will get four professionally trained Classical musicians who will respectfully recite all your favourite Classical pieces whilst also plucking and bowing a few contemporary/chart surprises as well!

What exactly will a String Quartet do at your event?

A String Quartet will usually always come in the form 2 violins, 1 viola and 1 cello. The richness of the cello, mixed with the density of the violins and the sweetness of the viola make for a majestic sound when played together. This is the reason String Quartets are forever popular and have been ever since Classical era composers incorporated them. Hire a String Quartet an expect to hear the worlds best Classical songs written by the worlds best composers such as Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert!

Mainly, a String Quartet will entertain your audience with a fantastic live show that will put the wow factor into celebrations and impress your guests, whatever their entertainment tastes may be

What event types are String Quartets hired for?

Book a String Quartet for Wedding Entertainment:

When you hire a String Quartet for your wedding ceremony, you will not only get the greatest Classical pieces ever played live as the bride walks down the aisle, you will also get an intimacy that is rarely seen with other instruments. The String Quartet can play a romantic bridal part such as Pachelbel’s ‘Cannon’ in D. This is perhaps the most iconic wedding song you can think of, so to have it played at this special moment will bring a few tears to your guests!. The String Quartet will then play a more celebratory piece when the wedding register has been signed and as the family and friends are walking out.

Before you go into full on party mode, how about hiring a String Quartet to ease your guests into celebrations first? A String Quartet is mobile enough to move from the wedding ceremony to the drinks reception venue with ease. If you’re having a summer wedding, then hire a String Quartet to play outside in the sunshine and create a fantastic atmosphere as the wedding photos are being taken!

Hire a String Quartet to breathe some sophistication into your wedding breakfast and all your guests will be delighted! A String Quartet can be set up to play outside of the wedding breakfast venue, playing orchestral master pieces and relaxing everybody as the wedding cake is cut, as well as playing before and after speeches!

Light up your wedding evening reception entertainment and search our directory for a String Quartet to hire! A cellist, 2 violinists and a viola can be set up on the centre stage and play a full show that will include the Classical eras best showstoppers! It’s worth noting that a String Quartet has the capacity to also play contemporary chart hits that will thrill the younger guests!

Book a String Quartet for Corporate Event Entertainment

String Quartets are fantastic for corporate events such as a gala dinner, or an awards ceremony. They can also be hired for radio jingles and to record music for television and films! All the trained musicians will need is a copy of the score and they will tun up at the recording studio and play the music note perfect!

You may want to hire a String Quartet for your trade show? A String Quartet will add a fantastic atmosphere and will entice potential clients to your product in a gentle way.

Book a String Quartet for Party Entertainment

Book a String Quartet for your party and it will act as pleasant and tender background music that your guests can still chat over the top of! Maybe you’re hosting a cocktail party? A contemporary String Quartet will play Pop and Rocks hits, as well as Classical and Opera pieces! This way, guests of all ages will be catered for!

If you are throwing a party with a historical theme such as the Tudors, or a Shakespearian themed party, a Quartet will bring the atmosphere alive! How about a Game of Thrones themed party? A String Quartet will be perfect for such a momentous event! They can cover the orchestral score for Harry Potter if you’re potty about Potter, or they can pluck and strum their way through the Stars Wars scores as well! (if you ask nicely!) Basically, a String Quartet will sound stunning for any themed party you may be hosting!

How much do String Quartets cost to hire?

Our simple to use entertainment directory allows you to firstly search for the best String Quartets who are local (or travel to your area) and then via the contact form you may contact them directly to enquire for a no obligation quote to perform at your event. Some acts will also add a rough price guide to their profile for your convenience.

What are the usual set formats and performance length for String Quartets?

The set formats for String Quartets can vary from short sets (averaging from 15-25 minutes) to mid sets (averaging 45 minutes first half - 45 minutes 2nd half) and longer sets (averaging 1 hour for the first half - and 1 hour for the 2nd half)

How much space will a String Quartet need at your event?

We suggest to have space to cover an area that is roughly 3 metres wide by 2 metres deep. 

What equipment and set up requirements do String Quartets need?

As with most artists who sign up to, a String Quartet will provide all of their own equipment. You may want to enquire if an artist needs a PA to amplify their sound, in which case we would advise to use our easy to use messaging service to find out. We do ask that each performer gets a backstage area in which they can prepare for the performance ahead. If your venue does not have a backstage area, then we kindly ask that you enquire with the venue to seek an alternative space in which the performer can comfortably get ready to entertain.

Elegance Quartet played at the ACC Greater Philadelphia Chapter 2015 Gala last night. I helped organize the event. Ray was great to work with in coordinating the music for the event. He was responsive and asked all the right questions to develop a play list that would fit the event. The Quartet did a fabulous job and we received numerous compliments on the music from the attendees.
