We are proud to have performed for many corporate clients, including Coutts Bank, Jet 2, The Co-Operative, Bentley Motors, HSBC, Manchester City Football Club, Finnair, BBC Breakfast & Granada ITV.

Clients enjoy our fresh approach to classical music and our youthful appearance, whilst we also surprise listeners when performing pop & rock covers.

We are happy to vary our wardrobe to suit the dress code of your event. Our usual attire is long black dresses for women and black shirt and suits for the gentlemen. We also perform in shorter black dresses, and are comfortable performing standing up if you feel this befits the event.

We have a collection of Christmas carols and pop songs which are perfect for Christmas parties & balls. To view our String Quartet Christmas repertoire scroll to page 18 on this link.

For larger events (100 guests +) we may need amplification. We are happy to assist in advising you on this and work alongside your sound team to ensure we are both happy with the quality of the music.

We regularly work with some of the busiest recording studios in the North West, offering solo instrumentalists through to large string sections. Our relaxed but professional approach puts engineers & artists at ease and we really enjoy working alongside musicians to create that perfect recording.

Whether or not you have string parts written out or need our help to compose them, we are very happy and able to assist. We not only want to do our best for you but also for the Leos name. We are our harshest critics so you can rest assured in the recording studio we always give 100% and won’t sign off on any audio files if we feel we can do a better job for you.

In certain circumstances we are also offering ‘remote recording’. If you aren’t based in the UK or don’t have the need to hire a full studio to record a solo instrumentalist we are able to record at our base and send you the files.

Hear examples of our recording work on our soundcloud page here.

And read some session work reviews here.

We have a huge pool of string players spread around the UK so if you need players to perform alongside you or your band, on tour or at home - look no further.

An evening of music, food & conversation with The Leos String Quartet.
Corporate hospitality throughout the UK makes up a large part of our portfolio. We are now offering clients the opportunity to enjoy live music to accompany private events in their homes or chosen venues. Live music enhances the ambience & atmosphere of any event and we believe that whatever your choice of musical genre, Leos Strings can provide it in a professional & sensitive way.

We can provide background music as guests arrive, and a formal recital from our repertoire list after the meal. You may choose to have your evening compered by Rachel, Leos’ manager & cellist, who can introduce the pieces during the recital and talk about the ensemble in an engaging, informal style (also answering any questions from the guests).

We are very happy to tailor our music to themed events and will endeavor to source appropriate music to best suit the occasion.

For more information or to arrange a meeting to discuss your requirements please contact Rachel.


We are available to perform for funeral and memorial services. We do appreciate that the planning of these may often be difficult and emotionally challenging. As with all of our engagements, our relationship with the client will be handled professionally, efficiently and with great sensitivity.

For more information please contact Rachel.


We’re very aware that to some people the ‘classical’ world is a closed book & some think that unless you know about it, it won’t make much sense to you. To many, classical music also appears to be something that only older people do and enjoy! We are making it our aim to change peoples minds and attitudes by taking our performances onto city centre streets and into schools where we can perform classical and pop music to show children today how versitle our instruments are and the variety of people our music can reach.

We have worked alongside GCSE music students, preparing and performing string quartet compositions, and given talks and performances in Primary Schools, introducing our bizarre looking string instruments to children in the hope of inspiring them, just as we were, to begin music lessons.

We also all teach privately so if you are looking for a violin, viola or cello tutor in the Manchester area please contact Rachel and she will send over a list of contact numbers.

If you work in a school and would be interested in us performing for you, please contact Rachel.


We have always enjoyed visiting hospital wards, hospices & retirement homes. It is immensely satisfying to share our music in these environments, and to entertain not only the patients or residents, but the staff and families too. Our varied repertoire enables us to play something to suit everyone and we rarely finish a performance without a singalong or people moving to the music!

If you have a loved one in hospital or living in a care home, please contact us as we would love to take our music to them.
