About Us

Live music adds greatly to any event, and The Philharmonic String Quartet can make your wedding or function that extra bit special. The quality of our music and our professionalism are unquestionable.

Visually stunning

The Philharmonic String Quartet are well-presented and highly experienced musicians. Our usual attire is formal black, but we can wear brighter colours if you prefer.

Perfect sound

Smooth strings add sophistication to any function. The four-part harmony of a string quartet gives an unforgettably unique sound.

Easily portable

Whether we are Indoors or outdoors, four chairs and protection from the weather is all that is needed. Our players are highly experienced classically trained musicians who have played at hundreds of weddings & functions in many different environments. We are sensitive to your guests' needs and are experienced enough to be in touch with the feel of the function in order to choose music appropriately.
