Experienced and lively sting quartet with extensive repertoire in a variety of musical genre. Arioso String Quartet is a lively, vibrant, experienced group of musicians based in Suffolk. Well established, with an excellent reputation, Arioso regularly play throughout Suffolk, Essex, Norfolk and Cambridgeshire.

Arioso String Quartet was established around 1999 and have been playing together ever since. We have an extensive and diverse repertoire and we are happy to advise you on suitable music for your event.

Arioso have played at all of the major venues in East Anglia. We are highly recommended wherever we play, including such prestigious locations as Wherstead Park, Hintlesham Hall and Layer Marney Tower. We will often liase directly with events coordinators at your venue which helps reduce the work load involved in organising a big day.

A string quartet creates a fine welcoming atmosphere adding a touch of class and sophistication to your event. A quartet is made up of two violins, one viola and a ’cello. A string quartet can give you music throughout the day, we don’t need a power supply and so can happily play outdoors (weather permitting).

"Dear Arioso,

Bravo, bravo, bravo!!! Our guests loved you and they loved your work tremendously. Several of them talked about you continuously over the weekend and we are still receiving messages from them of your magical musical performance. Thank you and well done on an excellent show.

A particular memory that stands out is a few guests coming to tell me that they wanted to move to other rooms, but couldn’t bare the thought of not being able to hear you play...Amazing! On several occasions when I came into the room there was quiet listening and thoughtful appreciation. Thank you.

We confidently applaud you and highly recommend you, knowing from energetic, enthusiastic, joyous and sparkling feedback that you did an incredible job of not only entertaining our guests, but inspiring young and old to take up forgotten instruments. Thank you.

Thank you Arioso String Quartet and bravo once again.

Our very best wishes to you,

James and Theo"
