Verified profile

Based in York, The Vitula Quartet is a professional string quartet available for weddings, events and session recording. Our repertoire is extensive and varied, ranging from traditional classical music to modern hits, encompassing everything from Vivaldi to Van Halen and Pirates of the Caribbean to Lady Gaga. The string quartet has long been linked with traditional classical music, but The Vitula Quartet formed with the idea of making the string quartet relevant to the 21st century. As well as being performers, members of the Vitual Quartet are also keen arrangers. We have written many of our own arrangements, including music by REM , The Killers, Coldplay, Daft Punk, Macklemore and Rolling Stones, as well as the theme music from Downton Abbey and Game of Thrones.

Thank you so much for the beautiful music for our wedding on 6th May at the Grand. It sounded amazing. Walking down the aisle to it made me feel so emotional. I was just sorry that I wasn’t around to hear more of it. A lot of people commented on how lovely the music had been.
