We just wanted to say a big Thank You to you and all the members of the quartet for your superb performance at our wedding. We were delighted by your choice of music… it was a fantastic day and thank you for your part in making it perfect.”
Nikki & Andy
Words are simply not adequate to describe how wonderful your playing was at our wedding on 6th June. I cannot say strongly enough just how delighted I was to hear the Vivaldi as I walked down the aisle. Many of our guests have commented how lovely it was to have a wedding with a string quartet and every aspect of what you gave brought everyone such joy. For John and I it brought a specially unique dimension and as a violinist myself I appreciated the really high quality of playing - thank you."

Recitals & Educational Outreach
Bath Spa String Quartet also gives public concerts, performing recitals for music clubs and festivals, as well as being heavily involved with educational outreach work. The quartet can offer bespoke projects for schools and venues based on a particular learning outcome or repertoire choice.
I really enjoyed your performance, it was fabulous and very engaging - the children loved the journey and I thought getting them to 'catch' the sounds was brilliant. Thank you!”

“It was pitched perfectly; the kids loved it and we had some great discussion afterwards. A lot of staff commented on how the children raised scientific points and linked them in with your presentation. Professor Arco provided ALL of the children with a dynamic, visual and stimulating way of accessing classical music, in a way that made sense to them; a fantastic morning!”

Bath Spa Baroque Quartet
Bath Spa Baroque Quartet compromises two violinists, a viola and cello, playing on period instruments at A=415 pitch. This vibrant ensemble plays with clarity and purity of tone, offering an exciting alternative to the traditional string quartet. We have an extensive repertoire by Baroque composers including Bach, Handel, Vivaldi and Corelli. The quartet is available to hire for orchestral concerts as well as for private functions.
