WE TRAVEL FAR AND WIDE

We travel up to 3.5 hours by car from the Brisbane CBD for performances. 

We can accommodate further distances if required, but please note that our fee will increase to cover additional travel expenses. 

Our Brisbane string quartet has travelled to Byron Bay for weddings and funerals.

ANY TYPE OF FUNCTION

Our Brisbane string quartet elevates any occasion, enhancing the ambiance as guests arrive and mingle.

The sophisticated touch of a world-class string quartet leaves a lasting impression, making every event unforgettable.

Explore the diverse range of functions we’ve performed at, including weddings, funerals and corporate events, showcasing the unique appeal of our musical talents.

DIVERSE MUSIC REPERTOIRE

We excel in performing a diverse range of music genres, covering not only the most iconic classical tunes by composers such as Bach, Vivaldi, Mozart, Haydn, Handel, Schubert, and Beethoven, but also contemporary music spanning from the 1950s to today’s radio hits.

Our versatile repertoire allows us to adapt to the event’s atmosphere, whether it requires slow romantic tunes, emotive and reflective pieces, or lively music to get guests dancing.

With a library of over 3,000 songs, we also offer jazz charts, tangos, traditional folk music from various cultures, hymns, Christmas carols, and film scores.

SPECIAL SONG REQUESTS

If your favourite song isn’t in our 3000+ library of songs, we’re more than happy to arrange it for you at no additional cost. 

In fact, we’ll arrange up to three special requests at no extra charge, guaranteeing your beloved songs are performed live exclusively for you on your important wedding day, for your loved-one’s funeral or other significant celebratory event.

For additional song arrangements, we charge a fee of $200 + GST per song.

CUSTOMISed BAND

At String Musicians Australia, our primary ensemble is the string quartet, but we also offer various configurations to suit our clients’ budgets, including string trios, string duos, and solo performances.

A string quartet, consisting of two violinists, a violist, and a cellist, provides the richest harmonies and fullest sound, making it our top recommendation.

A string trio comprises two violinists and a cellist, while a string duo features a violinist and cellist. Solo performances can be by a violinist, violist, or cellist, depending on the client’s preference. 

Please note that solo performers can only play the melody line, without harmony.

For those with an unlimited budget, we have performed as large orchestras consisting of up to forty musicians.

Ultimately, we can accommodate any request, tailoring our ensemble to your preferences and budget.

RECORDING SESSIONS

Not only do our musicians bring their exceptional skills to live events, but they are also hired regularly for recording sessions for commercial television, feature films, and student compositions. 

Their experience, versatility and patience make them the ideal choice for any event.

Listen to over 200 sample recordings.

LOW-LIGHT SETTINGS

Since we read our music on our iPads, we can perform in dark and low-light settings.

WE DON’T REQUIRE POWER

As we perform on acoustic instruments, we don’t require access to power.

As a result, our set up time is efficient and keeps our performance area safe and tidy.

WE DELIVER ACOUSTIC PERFORMANCES

For intimate gatherings with fewer than 80 attendees, limited spaces, or when your guests won’t engage in loud conversations, we recommend having us perform acoustically. This is ideal for wedding ceremonies, small receptions, funerals, and wakes.

If you prefer an acoustic performance for a larger event, consider booking our string quartet solely for the initial 60-90 minutes of your occasion.

During this period, our string quartet will create the most significant impact, and your guests will be most likely to appreciate their performance. Typically, after this time, guests become more at ease with socialising, their conversations grow louder, and the string quartet becomes less prominent. We advise playing music over speakers once the quartet concludes their performance. This will also save on your cost.

WE CAN PERFORM AMPLIFIED

For large wedding receptions, celebrations and corporate events hosting more than 80 guests, expansive indoor and outdoor venues, we suggest amplification to achieve the best sound quality. 

If your venue provides sound equipment to amplify the string quartet, please arrange for the sound engineer to place one microphone on a stand in front of each musician. 

To guarantee optimal audio, please book us for an extra 30 minutes prior to our performance time for an important soundcheck.

WIRELESS AMPLIFICATION OPTION

In Brisbane, we offer a state-of-the-arts wireless amplification system to ensure all guests can appreciate our music.

With a wireless system, there’;s no need to concern yourself with electrical safety tag checks or guests tripping over cables and wires.

We can fine-tune the balance and volume, delivering a performance that is perfectly audible without overwhelming the space.

We can also arrange ambient background music to be played over the speakers, filling the silence during our breaks (if applicable).

The additional cost for this service is $650, and we’ll need to arrive at least one hour before the booking time to set up.

If you’re interested in this service, please let us know when making your enquiry or when filling out our booking form.

WE PERFORM IN OUTDOOR SETTINGS

We are pleased to perform outdoors; however, our valuable instruments necessitate protection from direct sunlight, rain, and wind.

Appropriate outdoor venues include verandas, balconies, and decks with overhead cover, marquees, large shade umbrellas, or generous trees offering ample shade without the risk of falling foliage.

Performing on or near sand is not viable due to potential instrument damage. In case of inclement weather, please ensure an indoor backup performance area is available.

OUR PERFORMANCE REQUIREMENTS

We require minimal assistance from our clients.

Here are our performance requirements.

CLIENT CARE

We acknowledge the crucial need for seamless coordination on the day of your wedding, your loved-one’s funeral or other significant event, and our duties extend beyond delivering stunning live music; we also promise a smooth experience from our side. By choosing our services, you can rest assured that we will handle all music-related aspects, allowing you to attend to your guests.

Upon reaching out to us, one of our professional musicians will serve as your dedicated point of contact all the way up until your function date, reducing the risk of miscommunication.

We respond to emails and missed calls within 24 hours and are accessible seven days a week, ensuring you receive the care you deserve.

Please note that while we offer unlimited assistance via email and phone, in-person consultations are charged at an hourly rate of $200 + GST.
