About this Act

A different kind of string quartet! The Celli Quartet is a stylish and original group performing for events, four girls with four cellos, with not a violin in sight. This highly trained professional cello quartet is an unusual ensemble combining their professional classical background with contemporary arrangements to create a striking and original sound. Both the visual and audio impact are fantastic.

A constantly expanding repertoire and the diverse possibilities with four cellos make the group versatile and popular with a wide audience. Their fresh approach to quartet playing is a great alternative to the traditional string quartet, with a full, rich sound that people love.

The quartet brings expertise, a professional attitude, originality and style to a wide range of events including corporate events, weddings, drinks receptions, media events and exhibitions. For smaller events the players can also be hired as a trio, duo or solo.

Companies they have played for include: BT, Robinsons, Cancer Research, The Royal Society, The Metropolitan Police, The Royal Observatory, The Ambassador of Yeoman, The British Museum, The Natural History Museum, The V&A, Ball de Sterne, Somerset House, Cabot Hall and The Savoy.
