Act Profile

MSQ

Using stunningly original arrangements and an eclectic mix of styles, MSQ brings high class presentation and a unique charisma to the string repertoire. With a smooth distinctive sound and elegant sophistication they have an innate ability for capturing the exact mood and atmosphere of any occasion and can brilliantly pinpoint music to lift a crowd.

Their repertoire is extensive and ranges from large scale classical works through to 1920's jazz standards, pop covers and West End show tunes. It is rare that the quartet cannot match a style or request of clients. Placing heavy emphasis on presentation, they portray an image of sophistication, elegance and glamour and this had made the quartet a favourite with pop stars, film stars, charity and fashion show organisers.

Outside performances must be under a gazebo (with panels) or under proper building cover (not parasols).
The band leader reserves the right to refuse to play outside should the conditions be deemed unsuitable. An alternative indoor performance area would then be sought.

In 2012 you may have seen MSQ appearing in Downton Abbey. They have also appeared on X Factor.
