Repertoire for Afton String Quartet

Here is the current repertoire list for the Afton String Quartet. If there is anything in particular that you would like to hear on your special day that isn't on our list, we regularly arrange music for weddings and events so we'd be very happy to arrange your favourite song especially for your big day for an additional fee.

Please contact us  for more information via the enquiry form and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.  

Also, we're happy to help you choose the music if you would like us to. Remember: it is your special day, and any music is suitable.
