What can we say about the Mowbray String Quartet? Well, my now husband and I were due to get married last year, but we were involved a car accident only a few weeks before the wedding. We had everything booked, including the Quartet.
The task of booking everything again seemed like a daunting task. However, this was not the case, especially with Katie from the String Quartet. Katie was very accommodating and we re-scheduled it for May 2019. The professionalism of Katie allowed me to relax and know that everything was going to be ok on the day.
We were not disappointed. The quartet turned up on time, and played for our guests until I arrived. I shivered with excitement as I could hear the music as I approached the church. It was truly magical. The clarity and timing of everything was just perfect during and after the service - the quartet played beautifully. We would not hesitate to book the Mowbray String Quartet again in the future, they really helped make our day, a day to remember.

My husband and I booked Mowbray String Quartet to play at our wedding reception at Rudding Park, Harrogate. Communication before the day was spot on and Katie answered all relevant questions I had and made me feel at ease about everything! The quartet were punctual, well dressed and rehearsed and started playing upon arrival of guests. They were highly thought of from all of our family and guests, performing to the highest of standards throughout the day and really lighting up Rudding Park on a very rainy day with their beautiful resonance.
There was a wide repertoire played with exceptional quality from clsssical to modern. The musicians were great value for money and I would definitely hire them again and recommend them for anyone with future weddings or events coming up.
Thank you for being part of our special day.

My wife and I hired the truly amazing Mowbray String Quartet to play at our wedding at the Old Deanery, Ripon and we can’t speak highly enough of them!!
The bespoke performances were of exceptional quality, the musicians, as people, were polite, friendly and punctual, communication, with Katie, was very easy and all at a very reasonable price.
Our guests were all massively impressed and I would book the MBSQ again in a heartbeat. FIRST CLASS!!!

We contacted Katie to arrange for Mowbray String Quartet to play at our wedding yesterday at the Devonshire Fell in Burnsall. They have such a wide choice of music and even managed to produce an arrangement of our favourite song reducing the wedding party to tears. Everybody commented that it was fantastic music played by very talented musicians. We would highly recommend them to anyone wanting beautiful music at a special event. Thank you so much for being part of our very special day

We held our Golden Anniversary Dinner for Ripon Flower Club recently and I must say that the inclusion of the Mowbray String Quartet really helped the evening flow. They made for a magical atmosphere, their music was beautifully varied and played at exactly the right volume for each part of the evening. Our table had fun guessing the title of each piece of music as the opening bars played. Can highly recommend for any wedding or similar celebrations!

We were at The Ripon Spa Hotel last night for Ripon Flower Clubs Golden Anniversary Dinner and you played beautifully through out the evening adding a very classy ambience to the occasion.
The volume and choice of music was exactly right and we would highly recommend you all to anyone.

We booked the Mowbray String Quartet for our New Nears Eve wedding, their communication prior to the day was first rate and answered all of our queries promptly. On the day they turned up early to set up and played amazing music for our waiting guests. They played everything we asked of them at the church (even played Massive Attack- Unfinished symphony) and then quickly relocated to our reception venue and set up again and played beautifully for our reception drinks. Our experience of this amazing quartet is simply that they are perfect! We would recommend anyone looking for some brilliantly played music to check out the Mowbray String Quartet! Thank you again.

The Mowbray String Quartet convey their pleasure and joy in playing together to their listeners. They make a great blended sound and conquer many styles of music within a string quartet genre from classical Haydn, Mozart and Schubert to Scott Joplin and light and airy 20th century popular song. Their playing is exact and their ensemble balanced and together. They created a great atmosphere and I should love to be able to listen to them in a concert!! So much more than background music.

Their playing was full of warmth, energy and vibrancy and I also appreciated their contlnued ensemble, musical nuances and style in spite of being accompanied by chatter and laughter! They contributed much to the "feel good", welcoming and happy atmosphere of the family and friends event.

A big thank you to The Mowbray String Quartet for playing at our daughter and son-in-law's wedding recently. Beautiful music, which I didn't get the full benefit of, as being mother of the bride, I was last to arrive. It was a wonderful service and your quartet sounded beautiful in our small village church. Thank you so much for helping to make the day so special for them.

We can’t recommend the Mowbray String Quartet highly enough- they played our classical choices sensitively during our wedding ceremony, dramatically announced our arrival at the outdoor reception, then discretely and professionally entertained our guests with a wide selection of classical and popular pieces during the afternoon - something for everyone to enjoy. Many thanks!

The Mowbray String Quartet created a contemporary but classical feel. The quartet added a magical ambience to our special day. The highlight was the arrangement that the quartet agreed to do as we walked down the aisle at the start and end of the ceremony - Shape of You by Ed Sheeran. Pure class. I can highly recommend The Mowbray String Quartet for any occasion. They are flexible in their arrangement and have the ability to individualise your ideas for the day. Fantastic!
