Verified profile

The Celli Quartet is an exciting all-girl cello ensemble, a unique string quartet in its four-cello line-up. Performing gorgeous music from classical to pop for corporate events, weddings and recitals, the four cellists create a beautiful sound that goes beyond background music, playing with style, energy and passion. Following studies at the Royal Academy of Music the musicians formed an original quartet performing for events, formed solely of cellos. A fresh alternative to the traditional string quartet, The Celli Quartet offers originality, a rich, impressive sound and a wide repertoire from baroque and classical through to jazz, tangos, show-tunes and pop. Add to this the visual impact of four fabulous instruments, years of performing with orchestras, for recitals, events, television and radio, and their passion for performing and you have something really special!

Customer questions

Do you have different line-up options?

Yes! We can offer you the full Celli Quartet with all four cellos, or a smaller trio, duo or solo option.

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

We will accommodate your changes as far as possible with movement up to 30 minutes either side, but more than this or playing for longer, would require an additional fee.

How much time do you need to set up?

We only take 15 minutes to set up, but arrive approximately 45 minutes before the start time to ensure everything runs smoothly.

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

You can choose what you would like us to play from your repertoire list, or if you prefer, just say 'mostly classical', 'mostly pop' or 'a mixture' and we will be happy to choose for you.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

We bring our instruments, music stands, all music required, and evening dress (unless otherwise required), but we do not bring chairs which we will need to use from the venue.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Yes, we can arrange and learn a specific new piece for you, at a charge of £100 for the new arrangement to be made for the ensemble by our in-house composer-arranger,
