About Us

We are a talented group of first class musicians, with a solid reputation and many outstanding performances behind us.

We perform as a classic string quartet combining two violins, viola & cello, whilst also offering a string trio option.


We have a wealth of experience playing at Weddings and Events, and are a preffered supplier to numerous wedding venues and event planners in Melbourne.

Our experience speaks for itself

Founded in 1998, by four music students at The University of Melbourne and The Victorian College of the Arts, the quartet has evolved into a collective of some of the finest, most dynamic string players in Melbourne.

Our talented musicians perform regularly throughout Australia and overseas as soloists and in elite chamber ensembles and prestegious orchestras.
