Biography - About us

When asked, 'how much does a string quartet cost', we have the perfect answer for if it's ever over budget - hire a string trio instead! They tick ALL the same boxes and in fact this trio are held in such high esteem that Classic FM once offered a performance from them as a competition prize!

The three ladies are an established group of friendly and professional musicians and perfect for entertaining your guests. They've performed at countless prestigious venues including The Lanesborough, Dorchester, Claridges, the V&A, Natural History, Science and British Museums and in many London art galleries. Individually they've performed on stage at venues including Carnegie Hall, New York, The Southbank Centre, Numerous West End Theatres and on TV adverts, the X factor and in films. They've also worked with stars including Pavarotti, Katherine Jenkins, Cliff Richard and Alfie Boe so they're the perfect choice to enhance the atmosphere of your occasion.

They're friendly, approachable and professional in all aspects of their work and available as a duo (violin and cello) and as a quartet depending on location and budget.
