About us - Edinburgh String Ensemble

What we do

Experience of The Edinburgh String Ensemble

The Edinburgh String Ensemble plays a wide range of musical styles; from Classical and Scottish Favourites, to Latin American Tangos, Pop, Jazz and requested arrangements. We are a professional, experienced and well presented group of musicians who are committed to providing high quality music at weddings, events and many other important occasions. Our usual attire is formal black, but we can wear brighter colours if you prefer, and whether indoors or outdoors, all the string quartet needs is four chairs and protection from the weather.

Our members studied at prestigious music schools throughout Scotland and The UK including the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Edinburgh School of Music Royal Academy of Music, Royal Northern College of Music and the Royal College of Music. We are all experienced musicians who have performed at hundreds of weddings and functions at many different venues. With our passion and love for great music making, we are dedicated to bringing elegance and class to your special occasion!
