We have an enormous range of music, from classics to the current day. Videos of some of our repertoire can be found here.

We erect our own gazebo for outdoor bookings and amplification is available.

What people say about us:

The Guildhall, Cambridge

October 2017

"They (The Salisbury String Quartet) played at our wedding. The music was lovely and they were very attentive to what was going on. Isobel was so helpful with our request to play a piece with a singer friend of ours. Very professional and highly recommended."

Sopwell House

September 2017

"The Salisbury String Quartet were an absolute treat to have at our corporate event. They were very flexible and accommodating, as well as overall charming. They are incredible musicians and were very popular. Will definitely hire them again when possible!"

Prince Consort House, London

August 2017

"The Salisbury Quartet are really outstanding (this is almost a review since both my wife and I are professional flutists). Our guests and I really enjoyed their playing. They are extremely flexible in terms of the Programme and their presence really made a difference to our big day. Thank you!!!"

Kenwood House, London




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.
