The Thamesis String Quartet is a professional ensemble that is available for engagements in London and the South East.

The quartet has over 19 years experience, and provides an exceptional standard of playing and a wide range of music for all occasions including weddings, receptions, corporate events, christenings and parties.

The Thamesis String Quartet was formed in 1991 whilst its four members were studying at the Royal College of Music. The ensemble studied with the Chilingirian Quartet and won the TSW Award to study with the Brodsky Quartet as part of the Dartington International Summer Festival.

Individually, the ensemble’s four members have worked with many of the major British orchestras including the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, BBC Concert Orchestra, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, English National Opera, Northern Sinfonia, Royal Scottish National Orchestra and the John Wilson Orchestra, as well as further afield with the National Symphony Orchestra of Ireland and the European Festival Orchestra in Switzerland.

They have also worked in shows such as Les Miserables and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang in the West End, and toured with the Carl Rosa Opera Company in their productions of The Merry Widow, Die Fledermaus, The Pirates of Penzance, Iolanthe and The Mikado.
