The Blond String Quartet was formed as an innovative ensemble to perform music outside of the standard String Quartet repertoire

The quartet have had many arrangements specifically written for them, and they enjoy playing music from different idioms, including pop, rock, jazz, easy listening as well as standard classical works. Whatever you taste in music, Blond String Quartet have the repertoire for your event.

All of the players have a music college background and have worked professionally in orchestras, including The London Symphony Orchestra, The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, The Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, The Northern Sinfonia and The BBC Philharmonic. They have also worked with artists such as Elton John, Boyzone, Hot House Flowers, Omar and Ace of Base.
