All four members of the quartet are conservatoire trained and have, or have had jobs with some of this country’s leading orchestras. They have amassed a huge and unique repertoire over the years.

Their work is predominantly in the South of England and London but they are also happy to travel. Some of their more prestigious venues have included: The Houses of Parliament, Blenheim Palace, Buckingham Palace, Mossiman’s and the Royal Pavilion, Brighton.
