Concerts...

String Quartet UK are pleased to perform at public concerts and organised events. We can offer formal concerts of ‘serious’ quartet repertoire or lighter entertainment concerts of ‘classical pops’ or even a ‘Jazz, Swing & Ragtime’ evening. We would ask if possible, that six months notice of classical concert dates are given, so that we may prepare suitable repertoire to the professional standard that is expected by our clients.String Quartet

Concert fees for String Quartet UK are based on a concert programme of up to a maximum of 90 minutes music. When requesting new repertoire to be learnt, clients can also expect to contribute towards the costs of rehearsal time. If you are interested in hiring String Quartet UK for your Music Festival, Concert or Event, please mention this to your agent.

Our past public performances have included a charity concert in aid of the National Osteoporosis Society, performing works by Borodin, Dvorak and Mendelssohn, an invitation to give a private concert for members of the Rode Chamber Music Club, performing major string quartet works by Mozart and Debussy, a performance for a lunchtime recital as part of Keynsham Music Festival and a slot at the opening night of the Bath International Music Festival in May 2007.
