Gold Strings - String Quartet

This all female string quartet was formed in 2001, soon after which they were appointed as resident string quartet at the Ritz Hotel, London.

The vibrant group were set up to provide a touch of class and something a little different to events. Their extensive repertoire includes music from from all genres, baroque, classical, romantic, rock, pop and jazz. They aim to arrange all music requested by clients to insure a personal experience for the client.

All the members of the quartet are professional freelance musicians who also work with many British symphony  and chamber orchestras, play in touring and West End Shows and play on current pop Albums.

Other than being the resident quartet at the Ritz Hotel they have performed for Nelson Mandela at a Nelson Mandela foundation event, given concerts on cruise ships, performed recitals in music festivals, serenaded guests at celebrity weddings, entertained guests at christenings and given birthday parties that extra special something they were looking for.

After years of working together the quartet have the experience, repertoire and professionalism to play at any event.
