Instead of sheet music, we use Samsung Galaxy tablets. There are many advantages to them: they are neat and tidy, you and your guests can choose music with ease, there is minimal delay between pieces, they enable us to quickly relocate if needed, we don’t need lighting and most importantly we can easily add new music to our ever increasing repertoire.

Our String Quartet repertoire contains over 1,000 pieces from Bach to the Killers, and everything in between, making it one of the largest collections in Britain.

The Bridgewater String Quartet and Trio has something for everyone, and if your favourite song isn’t on our list, we can have it arranged for you.

A String Quartet comprises of four musicians: two violins, one viola and one cello. The String Trio has only three players by missing out one violin making it a perfect alternative choice for smaller venues and budgets!

If your favourite song is not already on our repertoire list, then we are able to arrange it for you at a small cost. Please note that we require at least one month’s notice for this service.

The String Quartet will require four armless chairs (or three chairs for the String Trio) set out where you wish them to play. They require a performance space of approximately 3m x 2m, and soft drinks are appreciated

The Quartet and Trio dress traditionally in all black but we can wear colours if you prefer.

The String Quartet and Trio are happy to play outdoors, usually during the drinks reception. However, they will not be able to play outdoors if there is any sign of rain, if it is too cold or windy, and will require a shaded area if there is bright sunshine. The reason for this is because of the damage it could cause to the valuable instruments.

The Bridgewater String Quartet and Trio members each have a regular deputy and also work with a small pool of talented and professional musicians. All graduated from top music conservatoires across the UK. This guarantees that you will receive a top-class performance on your big day.

To enquire about availability and price, please complete the contact form and we send you all the information.

Pricing usually corresponds to the level of professionalism and experience.  The Bridgewater String Quartet offers competitive pricing and its members have been playing together for over 10 years. Underlying this performing experience is many years of national and international concert performances as individual musicians. The result of this level of professionalism of the Bridgewater String Quartet will be more than evident at your function. We are confident and capable in any setting from church services to garden parties.
