Hire a Wedding String Quartet in Dorest

A sound renowned for being the hallmark of class, hiring one of our Dorset string quartets will transform a calm and collected affair into a night to remember, steeped in tradition and splendour. For a truly special occasion, whether it be a garden party, graduation, awards ceremony, private dinner function, drinks reception, charity event or corporate event, there is no more glamorous way to celebrate. Our string quartets in Dorset are a particularly popular choice for wedding processions and wedding receptions – the bride walking down the aisle to Wagner's Bridal Chorus or Pachelbel's Canon in D with the original instrumentation makes for a breathtaking moment.

Bands for Hire's string quartets in Dorset can be booked for events in Lyme Regis, Charmouth, Beaminster, Bridport, West Bar, West Lexington, Weymouth, Isle of Portland, Preston, Dorchester, Charlton Down, Cerne Abbas, Sherborne, Oborne, Gillingham, Shaftesbury, Fontmell Magna, Sturminster Newton, Shillingstone, Blandford Forum, Pimperne, Charlton Marshall, Milborne St Andrew, Bere Regis, Crossways, Bovington, Wool, East Lulworth, Wareham, Corfe Castle, Worth Matravers, Swanage, Studland, Lytchett Matravers, Farnham, Cranborne, Christchurch and most other areas in the region.

As with all our artists, our Dorset string quartets intend to appeal to as wide an audience as possible. For this reason, each quartet incorporates several differing musical styles into their set. The Vivaldi, Tchaikovsky and Strauss is offset against modern rock and pop tunes by the likes of Radiohead, Queen, Lady Gaga, the Beatles and the Darkness, as well as themes from beloved films, TV shows and musicals, including E.T, Game of Thrones, Cats!, Pirates of the Caribbean and Thunderbirds.

Dorset String Duos and Trios

As is tradition, according to Joseph Haydn’s seminal work on the form in the 1750s, our Dorset string quartets consist of two violinists, a violist and a cellist. However, if this line up doesn’t meet your budget or venue requirements, then our flexible and accommodating musicians can by prior arrangement appear as a string duo, a string trio or string ensemble of a different size.

if you're looking to acquire more sophisticated and relaxing music to feature as the backdrop to your special occasion, then you might also be interested in our Dorset harpists or pianists in Dorset.
