The return of Dorset String Quartet

We are delighted to announce that our first performance since the Covid-19 lockdown took place at The Grange, Oborne.

This was our first concert since March and consisted of an hour of summer music at 5pm on Sunday 23rd August.

Our next engagement is an unusual one! We will appear at Knoll Farm Campsite for a 1 hour performance of Rock, Pop and Film themes!

What We Play

We own a vast range of music including arrangements of the most popular pieces. Some wedding selections are listed here but we can offer a wide choice for all types of event. 

We can also arrange or source music specially if it is not already in our library.
