North East Soiree's String Quartet is one of the North East regionís leading professional String Quartets. Formed in 2002 it provides music for weddings, parties, birthdays, functions and corporate events.
Here is a sampler video to show photos of the String Quartet with two short recordings in quiet surroundings and then a few short clips of live videos. The quartet plays a variety of music from classical music to popular and well known jazz tunes.
What separates this Quartet from most other quartets are the musicians' diverse skills and experience performing in a wide range of musical styles. The musicians all play in the finest freelance Classical Orchestras in the North East Region, however they also play in Jazz, Rock and Pop Bands as well as Ceilidh and Folk groups. The players also play a variety of instruments in addition to the Violin, Viola or Cello, all to professional standard... So by day these musicians are reading music and playing with all the control and sensitivity of thoroughly trained professional classical musicians but by night they are improvising and rockin' in a variety of other bands.
Classical musicians often find difficulty in getting into the groove of Jazz, Rock and Pop music, however the players in this Quartet have been gathered together because of their genuine interest and wide experience performing in all the styles and it is obvious from every live performance that the Quartet all enjoy playing together and enjoy the challenge of extending the String Quartet repertoire in all directions.
The quartet has performed on several hundred occasions and generally plays a wide variety of different styles from Classical, Jazz, Popular and Films including Hollywood and Bollywood Music - see Newcastle String Quartet Bollywood Repertoire List. The string quartetís repertoire list is very broad and the group has three superb arrangers within it's players, so requests can be specially arranged and performed. The Quartet has arranged and performed several hundred tunes for weddings by request. This huge list of music now forms the String Quartet's standard repertoire and is available for anyone to choose from - knowing that the Quartet has already performed the music and is suitable for weddings or corporate events.
The String Quartet is part of North East Soiree, a group of professional musicians who provide a variety of musical ensembles, from String Quartet, Jazz Bands, Background Duo/Trios, Swing Band, Ceilidh band and Party Bands.
