About Us - Cardiff String Quartet

The Welsh National String Quartet performs in a wide range of musical styles; from Classical & Welsh favourites, to Latin American Tangos, Pop, Jazz and requested arrangements. We are a highly experienced and well presented group of musicians, who are committed to providing the highest quality music for your wedding, event or other important occasion. Our members studied at prestigious music schools throughout the UK including the Royal Academy of Music, Royal Wales College of Music & Drama, Royal Northern College of Music, Royal College of Music and the London College of Music. We have performed at hundreds of weddings and functions at many different venues. We are sensitive to your requirements and through extensive experience; in touch with the feel of your function in order to help you choose the music if required.

With our passion and love for great music making, we are dedicated to bringing elegance and class to your special occasion! Our usual attire is formal black, but we can wear brighter colours if you prefer, and whether indoors or outdoors, all our string quartet needs is four chairs and protection from the weather. Welsh National String Quartet players have graduated from Britain's leading music conservatories.
