Recent review: Echo Strings played my wedding ceremony and were absolutely fantastic. They were more than happy to learn a few of my fave songs that weren't on their playlist and their communication before the event was always helpful, friendly and professional. On the day, they surpassed our expectations - I've had so many guests comment on how beautifully they played and one of my favourite moments of my whole wedding is walking down the aisle whilst they played 'Halo' by Beyonce. Now I just need another big event so I have an excuse to book them again! Highly, highly recommended x

You can filter Ensembles by price and location, as well as compare reviews, images and videos to help you make the right choice.

There is no doubt that whenever there is a presence of four stringed instruments the same could be called a string quartet. Hence when somebody is looking for the right string quartet for hire in Manchester, apart from keeping the above in mind there are quite few other things that should also be considered. First and foremost whenever we talk about string quartet we usually associate it with one viola, one cello and two violins. Usually when music comes out from a well played string quartet it almost resembles that of a full sized orchestra. Hence, this is a very important point that should be kept in mind while going in for hiring these professionals. Any good four stringed performances usually comprise of a fast movement. This is followed by a slow movement. The next movement is perfect for dancing and again the music reaches the slow movement and the cycle goes on.

Things To Keep In Mind While Hiring These Professionals

When one is looking for string quartet hire in Manchester apart from ensuring the availability of the four music instruments as mentioned above, there are other important factors that should also be taken into account. These performers must be able to play the compositions of some of the best names like Beethoven, Mozart, Haydn, Schubert, Mendelssohn and others. They should be able to play the most popular compositions of these great names.

They Can Help Keep A Big Audience Enthralled

There is no doubt that when the best of string quartet performers are chosen, it is quite possible that they will be able to keep even an audience of few hundred fully enthralled. This is a very important point that must be kept in mind while on seeking out the right string quarter for hire in Manchester. Though there are a few who might feel that this form of music is a bit outdated, there are thousands who relish listening to some of the best music played by these professionals.

Today’s string quartet teams have evolved with time. They are now quite capable of playing a number of stringed ensembles. They can also play traditional songs, light music, jazz, popular songs from famous albums, theme tunes, show tunes and quite a few other performances. However, the onus lies on the end customers to find the best of talents after going through the right due diligence process. This is a time consuming job but it has to be gone through.
