 Classical Quartet

The Hays Quartet was formed in 1995 to bring live quality music to all types of functions such as weddings, corporate events and other forms of private parties. One of Lincolnshire’s Leading classical quartets known as a Flute Quartet, (flute, violin, viola and cello), they specialise in playing background music for wedding and civil ceremonies, drinks receptions and during dinner.

The quartet has continually developed a reputation for their individual style and quality and are all professional accomplished musicians in their own rights.

Their  repertoire is vast from Bach to the Beatles, to suit the event and occasion, the group is especially known for it’s zany arrangements built over the years from requests for brides and grooms for ‘their’ special pieces of music. These include the Archers theme tune, match of the day to music like film Plunkett and Macleane and Lord of the Rings to name but a few. So if the quartet doesn’t already play it, they will do a special arrangement just for you.

Reviews

‘We would like to thank the Hays Quartet for the excellent music played at the wedding reception on 2nd August for our daughter Zoe and Husband Justin.’ – Mr & Mrs Mayes

‘Thanks to you and the quartet for your excellent performance at Branston on 10th November.  My Step Dad, (ex music lecture),was even impressed – it takes a lot!  You was one of the main ingredients that really made the day extra special for us. Especially arranging the ‘Green Day’ track and ‘Both Sides Now’, making it a bit more personal to us.’ – Gary & Rachael
