A hugely versatile and experienced quartet, Sorrento have performed throughout the UK and Europe and even entertained Royalty.

In the short time since graduating from prestigious music colleges Royal Academy of Music & Guildhall in 2009, they've joined Madness on their UK tour, performed to thousands (at the O2 Arena) and worked with the Lightning Seeds and Richard Ashcroft (The Verve). In addition to this they've toured the cruise ships (Saga), delighted audiences at weddings and prestigious corporate events up and down the country and performed at venues as diverse as The Royal Albert Hall, the Wigmore Hall and Glastonbury. Their TV work to date includes The X Factor, Popstar to Operastar, GMTV, and Top of the Pops. The quartet excel in both classical and contemporary settings.

What people say Help

  • Sorrento Strings were brilliant. Really professional and classy. They looked amazing and played even better. People asked me several times where I found them as if they had been recommended to me but it was by chance that I booked them. Thank you ladies for making the beginning of the day SO GOOD!!!

    John, Wedding, Kingston, June 2015
  • I was very satisfied with the act - the girls were professional and on time and the music was beautiful. I'd definately reccommend them and use them again.

    Elizabeth, River Cruise, Oxfordshire, May 2014
  • Sascha and I were really thrilled with the Sorrento String Quartet you provided for our wedding in May. The music they played was beautiful and despite a strong wind and searing heat, they remained totally unruffled and enhanced our wedding ceremony tremendously. They played as the guests were assembling for our outdoor wedding, and then again during our drinks reception before we moved inside for the wedding breakfast. Our guests commented on how immaculately they were dressed and how magically they played.

    We would without hesitation recommend the group to any of our friends or colleagues. Thank you once again for helping to make our day so special.

    Jamie & Sascha, Wedding, May 2013
  • Having worked on several exciting gigs with the Sorrento String Quartet at packed-out houses, the whole of our band were knocked out by the technical ability and the theatrical exuberance of the girls.

    Clive Langer, Record Producer (Madness, Elvis Costello, Bowie)
  • These four clearly get on well. It shows in their playing: energetic and highly skilled.....
