  1. Sounds Amazing

    Just wanted to say how amazing the Rutland String quartet were. They let my bridesmaids have a practice with the music and it sounds amazing in the castle. Will be highly recommending them in the future.

  2. Thank you

    Thank you to you and the rest of The Rutland String Quartet for coming to Irnham Hall to play at Katy and Toby’s reception. We are really sorry we didn’t manage to chat with you on the day. Each time we came over you were mid-flow and it wasn’t appropriate to stop the piece. We do appreciate that you were able to accommodate Katy and Toby’s requests. We hope you enjoyed the afternoon too. We shall have no hesitation in recommending you to family, friends and colleagues.

  3. Made our wedding day magical

    We just wanted to thank you and the rest of the members of the Rutland String Quartet for making our wedding day so magical at Belvoir Castle. You guys really set the scene and it absolutely would not have been the same without you there. Everyone commented on how beautifully you all played and how emotional it made them. Thank you again so so much for all the hard work you put into creating and playing the pieces for us. it was just perfect.

  4. Professional and courteous

    Thank you for organising The Rutland String Quartet for my father’s 80th birthday party. The quartet were very professional and courteous and, more importantly, played a wonderful selection of beautiful classical music that was completely appropriate for our hosts and guests.

    I look forward to organising another event soon through DG Music

  5. Very grateful

    We are very grateful to Rutland String Quartet. Many guests have written to say they had such a great night!! Fantastic atmosphere and the song choices were spot on. Please pass on our thanks.
