They have played at Terence Conran’s restaurant Bluebird in London, as well as the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, The Dorchester, London and Powderham Castle in Exeter.

The Lead Violinist: Over the last decade the violinist has travelled all over world with various ensembles, most recently the world-renowned Trinity College Chapel Choir, with whom she held a choral scholarship. She holds a BA Hons in Music and Languages from Cambridge University.
The Second Violinist: A keen musician from an early age, she has led several orchestras and string ensembles, many of which she has organised herself. She is also a part-time novelist.
The Viola Player: She has been playing the viola since she was eight, “because she liked the name”! She also plays piano, flute and mandolin. Although classically trained, she has a passion for folk music and loves Irish fiddling along with her boyfriend, a keen accordion player. Her occupations include instrument retail, composing and writing.
The Cellist: She started learning music at the age of three, and since then has played in settings as diverse as London’s Jazz Café and St John’s Smith Square. She has performed in masterclasses with Steven Isserlis and Raphael Wallfisch, and her cello, a replica of a Stradivarius, was made by the British maker Colin Irving.
