Repertoire

CPQ playing in DJ / colours

You can select works from our repertoire list below, or leave it to us to choose appropriate works for your event. We can also make string quartet arrangements of your favourite songs. Whether your event is a wedding, birthday party, christmas party, corporate function, product launch, other PR event or ceremony (for example a christening, first communion, bar mitzvah, bat mitzvah or funeral) we can provide appropriate accompaniment to make it especially memorable.

Please visit the Sound clips page to hear a selection of short audio samples, and our Demo videos page for sample videos of the Crystal Palace String Quartet in action.
