Leos Strings (pronounced Lee-oss) was founded in 2008 by cellist Rachel Shakespeare at the Royal Northern College of Music, and has since been in demand to provide top quality music for events UK-wide for clients including Manchester City Football Club, The Co-Operative, Bentley Motors, HSBC, Granada ITV & Finnair. Leos Strings brings together professional players for Private & Corporate Events and Session Work. We offer a range of ensembles to suit individual requirements.

The flair they bring to their extensive repertoire from Bach, Gershwin & Muse has seen Leos Strings add a real lift to a wide variety of functions, and their busy schedule speaks for the ecstatic feedback they continue to receive from witnesses of their work. With special arrangements made to demand for requests outside of their repertoire list, and an enviable roster of dynamic, young, professional musicians forming the ensemble, Leos Strings are a must-have for any discerning corporate or private event.
