Act Profile

Status Cymbal String Quartet

STATUS CYMBAL is the String Quartet with a difference. Formed in 1988 from string principals of the Scarborough Spa Orchestra, it plays, as well the works of the great composers for the medium, its own unique library of sparkling and witty arrangements of all kinds of popular music, from Opera through Swing and Jazz to the great Musicals, Pop hits and Rock classics. The idea of this most traditional classical line-up playing familiar modern tunes intrigues and delights audiences of all ages and walks of life. As a result, the schedule now embraces concerts, all kinds of function both corporate and private, together with entertaining in hotels and restaurants and on board cruise liners. TV and radio credits include the BBC Radio 2 Arts Programme and Central Television's Pot of Gold, the peak time network ITV show hosted by Des O'Connor.
The number of weddings at which we have performed has now reached the 1.350 mark and this year included ceremonies for a member of the England football team and a post-wedding reception for a descendant of the last Tsar of Russia.

Our appearances at prestigious sporting venues continued, with a function for the Welsh Rugby Union team at Twickenham, performances at several prominent racecourses including the July meeting at Newmarket; where we were filmed by the Channel 4 live racing team.

Banish all previous conceptions of a string quartet from your mind - Status Cymbal are definitely different. They gave us a brilliant classical first half programme then a fun packed romp through the 20th Century in the second half. It was a pleasure having them with us and their performance was thoroughly enjoyed by our audience of over 800 members.

Thanks so much for Status Cymbal. They were more than fantastic and I know they enjoyed the weekend so everything was fab.
