Frequently asked questions

What equipment do I need to provide for a string quartet?

Four chairs with no arms. String quartets will generally bring their own music stands. Most groups play without, but if the musicians are using microphones or amplification, then they’ll need access to plug sockets.

How much space does a string quartet need?

Approximately 2 x 3 meters - imagine a Volkswagen Beetle with half of the bonnet missing. The musicians' bows will be moving, so guests shouldn't stand/be seated too close. Instruments are very fragile and expensive so it's best to keep children and exuberant dancers at a safe distance! If guests are curious, many musicians will be happy to talk about their instruments, so feel free to ask.

Can a string quartet take song requests?

Absolutely! Quartets love adding new pieces to their repertoire, and if they can’t find an arrangement, will often tailor one themselves for your event. This may add an additional fee to your booking, but is well worth the extra expense to hear your favourite song played in a new and exciting way. If you are going to ask for a new song, make sure you ask for this as early as possible. A quartet would ideally have a few weeks to get the song arranged and rehearsed properly, though they may be able to do this at short notice if they are particularly experienced.
