The Dorset String Quartet - String Quartet
This Dorset string quartet was formed in 1998 by musicians from several of Britain's leading orchestras, and has since performed many concerts throughout the UK. Their members have played for celebrities, opera stars, heads of state and royalty.
Based in Southern England, they are available to play for weddings and receptions, civil partnership ceremonies, corporate functions and private parties, where they can provide delightful and entertaining music to suit the exact occasion.
The quartet has a wide and distinctive repertoire covering all musical genres, from Bach and Mozart through to all kinds of popular music; from Opera to the Musicals, pop hits and rock classics. They are often able to commission new arrangements of special requests and their first priority is to entertain and delight their audiences and clients.
