About

The four members of the Vltava String Quartet were friends while they were studying at the Laois School of Music. Having played together many times, in many different orchestras and groupings, the four players eventually came together, combining each member’s respective talents to form the Vltava String Quartet. They immediately began playing music at weddings and functions across Laois, Kildare, Dublin, Offaly, Kilkenny and beyond, while other notable performances included Electric Picnic in 2007, and for President Michael D. Higgins in July 2013.

More than a decade on, the quartet have provided their unique sound and service to many thoroughly satisfied clients. Some of our corporate clients include Univar, Laois County Council, LGMSB, The Irish Thoroughbred Breeders’ Association, Abbeyleix Heritage, An Post, Pearl and Godiva and the Office of Public Works.

December 2020

“Myself and my now husband had booked Vltava String Quarter for our original wedding date of the 19th of June 2020. I had heard them play at a friends wedding two years previous and had decided that day, that whenever we would get married they would be first on our priority list. Unfortunately due to covid we had to postpone our wedding to 2021. However when it was nearing the end of 2020, with things not drastically improving we decided to go ahead with a small wedding in December with just our two immediate families. We booked everything within 2 days and what can i say, Vltava were an absolute pleasure to deal with once again. We were only able to give 48 hours notice before our ceremony but they could not have been more accommodating or professional. They really made us feel at ease and even went as far as performing on zoom for us the night before our wedding. It was just fantastic to get the opportunity to pick our songs together with Vltava with less than 24 hours to go. It really made the build up to our big day extremely special and intimate. Their beautiful music was the talk of our two families after the ceremony and for us, it really was the highlight. I cannot thank them enough for helping to make our small, last minute wedding, the best day of our lives. They are such a talented group and i look forward to hearing them in the future again. Any couple that gets the opportunity to have them perform at their wedding are very lucky indeed.”

Thank you!
