"The Arioso String Quartet turned my special day into something truly memorable. So many of my guests commented on how lovely the music was. It really added that something a little bit extra to my wedding."
– S. Toomey

"I was after music that would make mine different to your average function – I had heard other string quartets, but when I heard Arioso playing it really turned my head around. The jazz and gypsy pieces they played made our function totally unique. They’re great!"
- P. Bennett

"I’d just like to say a huge thankyou to you all for your performance last week! Your professionalism was greatly appreciated; punctual, well presented, and beautiful playing. Thanks again!"
