String Quartet

The USO String Quartet will complement your event with beautifully presented, young and attractive musicians who perform both classical and contemporary pieces including Chi Mai and Gabriel’s Oboe by one of our favourite composers, Ennio Morricone.

Performed by some of London’s best classically trained musicians this acoustic set will accompany any event with elegant strings. Depending on your budget and staging requirements it can also be performed by a duo or even solo violinist, providing the perfect musical backdrop for very special occasions including intimate gatherings. This ensemble can also be booked as an all female or mixed gender group as preferred.

The USO String Quartet has recently performed at prestigious venues including the Berlin Opera House, the US Ambassador's Residence for Michelle Obama, Hampton Court Palace, Merchant Taylors' Hall and on the Silver Sturgeon Thames Luxury Yacht.

The USO are great, very talented and experienced musicians who were prepared to go out of their way to be flexible support our event. They created a brilliant atmosphere and all of our guests loved their music with its unique blend of classical and modern sounds, they are able to adapt to any genre. It is the 2nd time they have played for us and they were brilliant!

Louise Francis, March 2014

I just wanted to send an email to say a HUGE thanks for Saturday. The girls sounded absolutely amazing and the acoustics in the Great Hall are just outstanding. It really helped set the scene so thank you so much for organising everything. It was a really lovely touch.
