Using stunningly original arrangements and an eclectic mix of styles, the Marten String Quartet brings high class presentation and a unique charisma to events using their diverse string repertoire. With a smooth distinctive sound and elegant sophistication they have an innate ability for capturing the exact mood and atmosphere of any occasion and can brilliantly pinpoint music to lift a crowd.

Their repertoire is extensive and ranges from large scale classical works through to 1920’s jazz standards, pop covers, West End show tunes and TV/Film themes. It is rare that the quartet cannot match a style or request of clients. Placing heavy emphasis on presentation, they portray an image of sophistication, elegance and glamour and this had made the quartet a favourite with high end venues, event teams/planners, wedding planners, celebrities, charity and fashion show organisers


Events are a speciality of the quartet and can range quite diversely from corporate events, office Christmas parties, special birthday parties, weddings, christenings, intimate dinner parties, sporting events, fashion shows, art gallery openings and charity events.

No event should be without music and if it is played by the exciting and diverse musicians in the Marten String Quartet, the event is sure to be a huge success!
