The Thackeray String Quartet or String Trio hire will provide relaxing background music, suitable for any event. They can also perform as a duo.

The four players in Thackeray String Quartet are friendly, highly experienced professionals, based in the North West.

In addition to their quartet work, they play with the region's top orchestras such as Halle, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, BBC Philharmonic, Opera North and Northern Chamber Orchestra. They have worked in West End shows, toured throughout the UK and have appeared as backing musicians in bands for artistes such as Katherine Jenkins, Russell Watson, Hayley Westenra, Texas and for the Strictly Come Dancing Tour.  

Their playing is versatile and they perform a huge variety of Repertoire, ranging from Classical favourites to Swing, Tangos, Beatles and a growing selection of Contemporary songs including: One Day Like This (Elbow), You're Beautiful (James Blunt), Game of Thrones Theme, Songbird (Eva Cassidy), A Million Love Songs (Take That) and many more. The selection is always increasing and the quartet is happy to perform music of your choice. 

The string quartet can be hired to perform inside a venue or – weather permitting – outside in the gardens.
