See what others have to say about The String Family!
Allan Spencer Director, Australian National Busking Championships™
The technical brilliance and musicality of the first violinist is perfectly matched by the unspoken communication between her and the other ensemble members. The often throbbing ostinato of the two cellos brings an energetic intensity that breathes new life into familiar classical themes. This highly polished and exciting quartet will bring audiences to their feet calling for more. Refreshingly, this quartet actually gives modern audiences what they crave, great music played with style and passion.
Greg Thouard President, Apple & Grape Harvest Festival
An entire community inspired by the unique performances from The String Family. From many hundreds enjoying their opening night performance, this grew to many thousands at appearances over the following week as word quickly spread of the sensational sounds provided by this musically brilliant group. At each, it was so warming to hear deafening applause, a true signal of appreciation for the quality of performance.
An amazing family, Stanthorpe has fallen in love with The String Family, their music and the promise that there will be return visits – we can’t wait!
