About Tyneside String Quartet

String quartet
Newcastle upon Tyne
Public liability insurance of £10 million
Professional string quartet available for bookings. Based in Newcastle, happy to play at events such as weddings, balls, corporate events.

We are a group of final year music performance students from Newcastle university who first came together in 2015 as a means to liven up our performance lives. Formerly known as the Newcastle University Student Quartet we have since rebranded as the Tyneside String Quartet in order to put more energy into preparing for concerts and taking on more paid opportunities in response to the many opportunities we were receiving as we became more prominent as an ensemble. We had a short hiatus in 2017-2018 whilst 2 of our members were on study placements in Europe and in the summer 2018 we resumed rehearsals with 2 new members on the viola and cello! To date we have had the privilege of playing concerts in the Newcastle University Summer Music Festivals, various society balls and we sometimes play at the Little Green cafe in Shieldfield. We also have experience playing at weddings with the furthest one so far being in Farnham, Surrey, and as music students we are also individually accomplished as performers and separately involved with other ensembles and solo enterprises. As a quartet we are proud to have both leaders of the Newcastle University Symphony Orchestra and the Newcastle University Chamber Orchestra whilst collectively boasting a wide performance history in multiple venues including the Sage, the Barbican and the Royal Albert Hall.
