City String Ensemble is a stylish string ensemble who add a touch of class to your wedding, drinks reception or corporate event.

City String Ensemble are a stunning group of musicians who provide entertainment at all events. We are a string ensemble with a difference - the repertoire list features all your classical favourites, but we are not afraid to try something new!

You can expect to hear original, quirky arrangements of songs from musicals and films, swing classics, and modern pop songs. Check out our extensive repertoire - and if you have any other songs you'd like the group to perform for you, get in touch and we'll see what we can do!

We perform completely acoustically and are able to entertain your guests indoors or outdoors, provided there is suitable cover. We usually ensemble perform as a quartet but we are also available as a trio or duo, depending on space and budget.

For Weddings:

We can entertain your guests for 30 minutes before the ceremony, and then perform music for the procession and recession of the bride and the signing of the register.

You can also have us stay for longer to entertain your guests for your indoors or outdoors cocktail hour and beyond!

Which Ensemble?

The string quartet is the most popular and classic ensemble, possessing a diverse repertoire. A perfectly balanced range of instruments; the quartet can entertain the whole party or subtly blend into the surroundings, adding an extra sparkle to the atmosphere.

A string trio is perfect for where space might be limited. A smaller group of just three players, our string trio can provide ample entertainment with much of our quartet repertoire also working perfectly well for trio.

If you would prefer something more unique, a string duo may be what you are looking for. A combination of either two violins or a violin and cello presents a more intimate feel and again, frees up more room for your guests to enjoy your event. Our repertoire for string duo covers a wide range of genres, from Classical to Klezmer, Salsa and other styles from around the world.

"The most incredible string quartet we could ever have asked for. They were so professional, extremely talented and our guests were enthralled by them. Such a wonderful group and we are so happy they were a part of our wedding day. Sophie was particularly helpful in booking them too. Thank you City String Ensemble, for making it so special for us."

"City Strings hugely contributed to my sisters wedding day. They played at the drinks reception and their excellent repitoir, beautifully played, created the perfect atmosphere to get the celebration off to the best start possible. They were so easy to arrange, reliable and tailored the set to our requests. I was impressed with their talents as well as how professional they were to work with booking their services."
