Repertoire

Testimonials

...a delightful evening.

The standard throughout was extraordinarily fine both musically and technically, not least in the fiendishly difficult Moeran String Trio which appeared effortless.

Robert Lind, about Afton Strings' recital at Moffat Music Sociey, March 4th, 2016
The quartet's participation and contribution to  J and O's wedding  on Saturday was superb. We have had many, many complimentary comments  about the beautiful sound made by the group and how it created a wonderful atmosphere before,during and after the ceremony. We had friends and family from Australia, Canada, United States, the Caribbean and many more European countries plus, of course, Kilmarnock! Now the quartet's fine playing will be getting talked about,literally, world wide!

Thank you for helping to make J and O's wedding day truly memorable.
