The Shakespeare String Ensemble - String Quartet, Trio & Duo

This Manchester string quartet was founded in 2008 at the Royal Northern College of Music. Since then, they have been regularly providing high-class music for events and weddings throughout the North-West. Notable corporate clients have included Manchester City Football Club, Bentley Motors, Granada ITV & Finnair.

They are constantly adding to their repertoire list but if they don't have that one special piece you are after, they can have almost anything arranged specifically for you.

They are also available as a Duo*, Trio & Quartet (for larger functions). (*only currently available for ceremonies)

The quartet is drawn from a large pool of professional string players individually selected for their musical abilities and extensive experience performing at weddings and functions. These players have worked with UK Orchestras including the BBC Philharmonic, Manchester Camerata, Halle and Liverpool Philharmonic.

Their aim is to provide a bespoke service, individually tailored to your needs - whatever the event!

The Shakespeare String Ensemble - String Quartet, Trio & Duo Feedback

"Our wedding on 8 October 2016 went off without a hitch - everything was perfect. The string quartet exceeded our expectations. They were punctual and looking very professional in matching long black dresses. We chose our favourite pieces of music from their incredible repertoire - we were spoilt for choice! We choose classical for before and during the ceremony, and popular music afterwards. The leader, Rachel, in particular, had a lovely smile and was charming. The string quartet certainly added a touch of class to our wedding. Thank you for your service." Barrie Wilson, Chester Grovesnor Hotel, October 2016 

"Dear Geoff, I would like to thank you and the quartet for helping to contribute to what was a wonderful day, the act was everything we had hoped for and more. They were very professional, punctual and smartly dressed and we now cannot wait for the Video so that we can re-live the day. The bride and Groom are so looking forward to listening to the group again on DVD (myself too as  I love the violin) as they did miss quite a lot posing for photos. Our guests were equally delighted and said that the day was just perfect and having a string quartet was the icing on the cake, many did say that they wished that they had chosen a string quartet for their special day. 

The booking process was easy and I would definitely recommend your service to any of our guests who attended and enquired about the quartet. Attached is a picture of the girls performing and once again thank you so much and please thank them on behalf of the Bride and Groom who did not have time to thank them personally on the day." Sylvana Wildman, Astley Bank Hotel, August 2015
