Blond Strings

The Blond String quartet was formed in 2001 as an innovative ensemble to perform music outside of the standard string quartet repertoire.

The quartet has had many arrangements specifically written for them. They enjoy playing music from different idioms including pop, rock, jazz, easy listening as well as standard classical pieces.

Blond has performed at many corporate events, weddings and festivals. they have enjoyed a residency at the Ritz Hotel, and were recently asked to perform for Nelson Mandela.

All of the players have a music college background and have worked professionally in orchestras including The London Symphony Orchestra, The Royal Philharmonic and The BBC Philharmonic. They have also worked with artists such as Elton John and Boyzone.
