A String Quartet has an extensive repertoire

A string quartet’s repertoire is normally extensive, ranging from Baroque, through Classical and Romantic to light or easy listening music such from shows, films together with light jazz and pop classics. This makes the ensemble ideal for a Wedding an anniversary dinner, corporate entertainment or military banquet.

Some String Quartets in your area are variants of the traditional line up. A string quartet comprises 2 violins, viola, cello. Some ensembles play with additional or alternative instruments, such as flute, violin, viola, cello. For example the Midsummer Flute & String Quartet plays with flute, violin, viola, cello

A String Quartet for a reception or banquet in your area

For your reception or banquet in your area, whether it's for just a few people to a hundred and fifty, a purely acoustic group can adjust the sound level so that guests can talk and socialise comfortably, whilst enjoying the music as background. Sometimes guests sit and listen like an informal concert. Using purely acoustic instruments means the string quartet can set up or move locations quickly, (provided that the venue has place four chairs at each location the quartet are to play in). There are no amplifiers, microphones or loud speakers to set up and move. So a string quartet can play in one location for the drinks, then move to another location to play during the meal.

A String Quartet in your area for a Wedding Ceremony

Being such a versatile ensembles, a string quartet is a perfect option for your wedding ceremony in your area. Usually the string quartet play for a quarter to half an hour before the ceremony, as guests arrived. This sets a wonderful atmosphere. They play for the Bride’s entrance, during the signing of the register and as the couple make their exit. If they are playing for a church ceremony, they would sometimes play for the hymns, though usually the church organ would do this. You would discuss and agree the precise pieces of music with the leader of the string quartet. If it is a civil ceremony, then the music must not have any religious connections, but is something that the Registrar presiding in your area would discuss with you.

Positioning the String Quartet

Where you decide to position the string quartet is important. When playing for a meal or wedding breakfast, the quartet should be as central as practical to all the diners, so that they are as equidistant as possible from the ensemble. This means that everyone can hear the music at a comfortable level. Locating the ensemble in a corner close to some wedding guests, and a long way from others means that if the string quartet play at a volume that is comfortable for those nearest them, those a long way off won’t hear them properly. For a your area wedding ceremony, the quartet can be positioned at the back of the ceremony room or church, so that the music can be heard without distracting from the guests view of the bride and groom. Alternatively, the string quartet can be at the front of the room or church, so that they provide an attractive visual feature to the wedding ceremony, particularly as guests arrive early for the wedding.

How much space does a String Quartet need?
