Customer questions

Do you have different line-up options?

We have a vast repertoire which is for string quartet, and the line is the same (2 violins, 1 viola and 1 cello)

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

We will do our very best to accommodate any changes to timings.

How much time do you need to set up?

45 minutes. We are very simple and quick to set up.

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

Absolutely ! We will send you a PDF of our repertoire list with the code that corresponds so that we can transition from piece to piece very quickly !

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

We do! We need an area covering about 2.5 x 2 metres. It is preferable that we are on a flat surface with adequate light. We need 4 armless chairs in a semicircle. It is also helpful if there is a place where we are able to leave our cases during our performance.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Yes we absolutely can ! We can either arrange the music ourselves, or buy it online if it is already arranged suitably for string quartet.

The Bossard Quartet were the last thing we booked for our wedding but I can not believe how much they added to our ceremony and drinks reception. So many of our friends complimented them and one of our toddler guests was particular enamoured. He stood, finger on his mouth, gazing in awe. We will never forget walking in to their playing or stepping out to the confetti to All You Need is Love. Music is a wonderful, joyous thing that transports us through memories, but live music is extra special. These 4 ladies added to our totally perfect day and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them. They mostly played requests though everything else was spot too. I can’t wait to receive our videos back so I can relive those moments. I think I’ll always think of their rendition of Blink 182’s All the Small Things while we had some group photos with friends, singing and laughing along. A friend even told me she’d been playing string quartets through her salon as they gave her so much joy. Book Bossard Quartet. They are exceptional value for 4 marvellous musicians and we can not thank them enough.

TBQ played during the ceremony and drinks reception at our wedding in September 2022 and were absolutely brilliant! All the guests were very impressed with the quality of the music! They put together a special composition for us to walk down the aisle to which was amazing. The booking process was easy and they were very contactable throughout. Would highly recommend
