Funeral and Wakes

String Musicians Australia has performed for many funerals and wakes at short notice and are registered with the Australian Government as trusted award-winning musicians.

If you'd like to hire a string quartet for a funeral of a loved-one, please allow us to help celebrate their life. 

For funeral services, we suggest hiring a string quartet 15-20 minutes prior to the commencement of the service. We'll perform appropriate, beautiful classical music while guests arrive, so you don't need to select this music.

We also perform during the service and for the exit. We can perform for the lighting of the candle, communion, photo reflection and at any other times that are suitable. It will assist us if you can note in the service booklet when you'd like us to perform.

Music For A Funeral Service:

For the feature songs during the service, you may select songs from over 200 of our recordings. To assist you, we have also listed the top 20 reflective songs that are suitable for funerals & wakes.

Alternatively, you can leave the music selection with us. We'll ensure that suitable, beautiful classical music is performed during the service. 

To hire a string quartet for a funeral, please fill out our booking form as soon as possible, as this is required for all bookings. If you need to speak to us, please call 1300 997 923. If we're unable to answer, we're probably rehearsing or performing, so please leave us a message. We'll respond to you shortly and will most likely be available as most of our other performances are late afternoons and evenings. 

In case the service runs over time, it's best to hire a string quartet for slightly longer. This is to ensure that we don't leave during the service, which is possible if we have other commitments to attend.  

For funerals & wakes, we require full upfront payment. Payment can either be made by direct bank deposit, credit card over the phone, or cash upfront. This will all be organised as soon as we receive your booking form
