Customer Quotation


The Orpheus String Quartet has been performing for wedding guests and corporate clients since 1999 and have extensive experience of tailoring their repertoire to create the perfect mood for your special day. We can help you plan your booking to suit your individual requirements, and are available to help with the arrangements leading up to the engagement.

The quartet can play from as little as one hour to five hours and are happy to travel if there is more than one venue. The Orpheus String Quartet has repertoire to suit church services, civil ceremonies, civil partnership, drinks receptions, corporate events and background music for meals. We will gladly offer advice about which music to consider and assist in your music selection.

Orpheus String Quartet


Live music adds so much to a function and the Orpheus String Quartet can make your wedding or function that extra bit special. The quality of our music and our professionalism are unquestionable.

The Look The String Quartet are well-presented and highly experienced musicians. Our usual attire is formal black, but we can wear brighter colours if you prefer.
The Sound Smooth strings add sophistication to any function. The four-part harmony of a string quartet gives an unforgettably unique sound.
Portability Indoors or outdoors, all the String Quartet need is four chairs and protection from the weather.
