A contemporary string quartet with a passion for supplying high quality music for all live events

We came together as a quartet whilst we were freelancing with Tempus Chamber Orchestra in London. As individuals we have performed at Glastonbury, Royal Albert Hall, The O2 and Wembley. We've supported Andrea Bocelli, Aled Jones and taken part in UK & European tour of The War of The Worlds. We have also performed with London Concert Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra. As a Quartet we have played at The Naval & Military Club, One Great George Street, The Wallace Collection, Brookfield Barn, All Saints Chapel Eastbourne, Ashdown Park Hotel and Bodelwyddan Castle. The Quartet are passionate about delivering high quality music specifically tailored to meet clients individual requirements. We have an ever-expanding repertoire covering classical to jazz to popular. We are sure to have something to delight clients of all ages.

Accordi String Quartet played at our wedding at Hartsfield Manor recently and without doubt they were one of the best features of the day. They are the nicest people you can meet. Leading up to the wedding we had a few conversations with Sheraine about playlists and she put us at ease and took all of the stress out of music planning providing some superb recommendations. Our ceremony was beautiful and the gorgeous music had me in tears before we even walked into the room. They timed it perfectly with our walk down the aisle. Afterwards the gang played outside under an old oak tree - it looked amazing and really provided a central feature to gather around. They played all of our favourites and composed some ones that they knew we’d like - songs from LaLa Land and The Greatest Showman - nearly died when they came on - LOVED IT!!!! If you have any doubts about what music to have at your wedding then I promise that you’ll be so happy if you chose Accordi String Quartet. Thanks again for a wonderful day xx
