What people say about us:

July 2019

"I wanted to thank you and Rachel very much for playing at Tilty church last Saturday. Will and our families said how lovely the music was before the service began and I thoroughly enjoyed the pieces while we signed the register and our hymns with such uplifting accompaniment. Several of our guests were in the military and knew the Boccherini well, they said how great it sounded! Thank you for your good advice all along, and for taking the time to interpret our choice of music."

"We booked The Salisbury String Quartet to play at my mother-in-law's 80th birthday party. They played for over 4 hours and were absolutely superb throughout. As the party recipient is an avid Petula Clarke fan I asked if the quartet would be able to play an arrangement of Downtown. They managed to source the music at rather short notice and delighted the captivated audience with the surprise piece. It was simply wonderful. My mother-in-law was really moved and it made the day extra special. They certainly added a touch of class. Thank you."

"We just wanted to take the opportunity to say a big thank you for playing at our wedding last month! Although we didn’t get much time to enjoy the music we know our guests definitely did, we had lots of comments that you guys were great and the music was fantastic throughout. "

When performing outside, we use Standbands to secure our music pads to the stands. This ingenious set of bands are produced in coloured or plain wooden bead versions. They are plastic free, made from natural products and supplied in a cotton bag with a wooden peg (so that the bands can be wrapped around this at the end of the booking, to ensure they do not tangle).


These are available for £8.99 (+£1 p&p). Buy Here

The set of 8 is recommended for string quartets, so that each player can have a band at the top and bottom of the music.


Formerly the Salisbury String Quartet we now play as the Four of Herts String Quartet!
