Arco String Quartet is one of the busiest professional live music ensembles in Ireland and as a result we have a pool of players who perform regularly with the quartet. Our players are hand picked from the Ulster Orchestra and the top freelance players from the North and South of Ireland and throughout the UK.

We accept bookings up to two and three years in advance and therefore with our “family” of players, can guarantee the finest string quartet for your day.

Whilst Clare and Richard provide a very personal service, it is not always possible for them to be present at every function. In these circumstances every player is fully briefed in advance of each function to ensure the highest quality of performance for your event.
