String Quartet and Duo Music for Weddings, parties  functions and corporate events across Berkshire and the South East




Since our formation we've worked hard to develop a diverse and engaging selection of music suitable for audiences of all ages. We now offer a unique contemporary music selection  in addition to the traditional classical repertoire offered by many quartets, allowing us to perform celebrated classics alongside arrangements of movie themes, jazz music or current pop hits. This allows us the flexibility to tailor our performances to suit any event, and musical taste with a little input from the client.


Akina Strings' pool of players have many years experience of playing for live events ranging from appearing with Kanye West to our own performance for George and Amal Clooney and family. We and are also experienced hands at arranging suitable pieces of music should you have a specific request in mind for your occasion.
