About The Nero String Quartet

The members of The Nero String Quartet met whilst studying at the Birmingham Conservatoire. Finding a musical meeting of minds, they formed the quartet in 2001 and have rapidly built up a reputation as one of the leading young quartets in the Midlands.

Their musical excellence and that essential ingredient - an instinctive rapport between the quartet members - is the result of much hard work. As well as studying at Birmingham with members of the Maggini and Coull quartets, they have also attended masterclasses provided by The Endellion Quartet, The Lindsay Quartet, The Schubert Ensemble, The Allegri Quartet, The Volger Quartet, The Vanburgh Quartet and have also taken part in a bursary course with Michael Bochmann and The Carducci and Maggini String Quartets. The fruits of their hard work were formally recognised in 2003 when they won first prize in the Sylvia Cleaver Chamber Music competition and were also awarded The Derek Young Memorial Award.

The quartet have performed recitals in the UK, France and Spain. Recent appearances have been at the Birmingham Chamber Music Society, the Malvern Concert Club, Knighton Chamber Music Society, Dudley Chamber Music Society, Bromsgrove Chamber Music Society, the String Quartet Festival at the Royal Northern College of Music, and the London String Quartet Festival. Members of the quartet have also appeared on pop and film music recordings.

Apart from their classical recital work they have a wide repertoire of lighter music, suitable for weddings and private functions.

What People Say:

"Their performance during the ceremony was perfect, exactly what we were looking for especially with the mix of classical music and pop songs. Unfortunately during the cocktail reception I was whisked away for photos so I did not get to enjoy listening to more of their music!"

"Thank you for playing so beautifully at our wedding ceremony and reception. You really helped to set the atmosphere on the day."
