Con Spirito String Quartet
The Con Spirito String Quartet is one of the best String Quartets in the Midlands who have played for many distinguished and international events over the past 10+ years and also many weddings and parties.
During 2008 - the quartet, as part of an orchestra, performed with Il Divo and Celine Dion and in 2009 one of their stunning events was to perform on stage at the Royal Albert Hall with the amazing George Benson - see youtube clip below -
If you look to the right of George Benson you can see cellist and strings which all make up part of the Con Spirito Quartet.
As well as performing at the closing session of the G8 summit and a Eurovision after party they have spread their wings even further and from time to time with other very professional colleagues they expand to an orchestra and have toured more than once with Barry Manilow, The Four Tops and The Temptations and in 2006 and 2007 toured with Il Divo and Hayley Westenra (an amazing tour!)
They truly are a superb quartet and we have received many thank you letters from brides and grooms who have enjoyed beautiful music that has enhanced their Wedding Day.
Their amazingly wide repertoire, versatile and professional musicianship make them ideal for all occasions. We will also mention that they are all quite lovely too!
Con Spirito is also available as a trio if space or budget is slightly restricted.

Just wanted to say a big thank you to Julie and the team at Classique for supplying us with 2 great acts for our wedding (Con Spirito & Jazzmatazz). Both groups were terrific & helped us really enjoy our day with their professionalism & services
Please could you also thank the musicians themselves on our behalf - we shall certainly be recommending Classique
Thanks again Fran & Adam
A huge thank you to you for organising everyone and special thanks to the Inspiration Gospel Choir, Rhona Clarke, The Con Spirito String Quartet, Russ Stokes and Geoff Tristram. They all contributed to make our day magnificent! They were all wonderful! We're still trying to fathom out some of the tricks Russ did and Geoff had queues of people waiting to be immortalised!!
All the very best to you all.
Sherry and Michael Taylor-Wright
We have finally got round to saying a huge thank you for your help and guidance with the quartet and DJ.We booked through you for our wedding last July.
Con Spirito were wonderful, and Roger Tomkins really got everyone dancing, both really helped make our day so wonderful.
We would like you to pass on our thanks, even though 6 months has passed.

Dear Nicky and Mac
What a magical day we had on 3rd June 2002, everything went according to plan and we enjoyed every minute of it. Thank you so much for making it such an enjoyable and memorable occasion. We have had so many people say how good the music was - just right - there were even people dancing who have not bothered to dance before at other functions we have been to.
Please also say a big thank you to the Con Spirito Quartet who played superbly.
The evening went so quickly in the end and we were not able to thank you properly for the lovely CD of our chosen tracks. A lovely reminder of a great day.
Maybe our paths will cross again in the future.
With kind regards and grateful thanks.
Marilyn and Peter 3rd June 2002
Just a short note to say thank you for your assistance in arranging the music for our wedding day on 30th September. It was a truly wonderful day that we will always remember and the music was a great part of the whole ‘event'.
Our guests are still talking about the music and the various artists. Could you please pass our thanks onto Con Spirito and to Gary Allcock and say how much people enjoyed listening to them.
Once again many thanks. Diana Berry
Thank you for providing Con Spirito at our wedding at Hagley Hall 4th September 1999. They were excellent and our guests were very impressed.
It really helped people to relax and the sound was lovely while we were eating and really added that something special to our wedding.
Simon & Amanda - 4th September 1999
