About this Act

As Britain’s first and foremost ‘crossover’ string quartet, Status Cymbal is the String Quartet with its own distinctive style. As well as playing the works of the great composers for the medium, it has its own unique library of sparkling and witty arrangements of all kinds of popular music from Opera through Swing and Jazz to the great Musicals, Pop hits and Rock classics.

The idea of this most traditional classical line-up playing familiar modern tunes intrigues and delights audiences of all ages and walks of life. As a result, the schedule now embraces concerts, all kinds of functions both corporate and private (they have performed at over 1,350 weddings in their 34-year history), together with entertaining in hotels and restaurants and on board cruise liners. Their TV and radio credits include the BBC Radio 2 Arts Programme and Central Television’s Pot of Gold, the peak time network ITV show hosted by Des O’Connor.
