'Outstanding Suffolk String Quartet'

Andrew Leach- Director of Music at Ipswich School

'Can I just say that you all were absolutely brilliant at the wedding The quartet has been mentioned by every single guest we had. They were SO taken with you. I was blown away, even though I had already heard you play when we booked you. It was the highlight of the festivities having you all there. The vicar was also mightily impressed how well everything was timed to the second.'
