Description

Price from: £400

Based in Dorchester, Dorset, the Arioso String Quartet is available to play for weddings and receptions, civil partnership ceremonies, corporate functions and private parties throughout the south and south west of England. Many of our engagements are in the counties of Dorset, Devon and Somerset; however we frequently travel further afield to Cornwall, Bristol and Bath, Hampshire and Wiltshire, and far beyond. We will be pleased to quote wherever your event is to be held.

We always aim to provide delightful and entertaining music to suit the exact occasion. You can listen to us playing tracks from our extensive library of wedding music by using the media player at the bottom of your screen.
