The members of the Mancini String Quartet met while studying at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London. The drive behind forming the group was to create an ensemble to span all musical genres, from Classics to Jazz standards, Pop Songs, to the hits from the West End. One of our members, Rustom Pomeroy, is a successful composer and arranger; can provide string quartet versions of any pieces you may request which are not in our repertoire. With this diverse musical facility we can add a unique atmosphere to your wedding, party or dinner.
In recent years due to demand the Mancini String Quartet has expanded to include a pool of 12 members all full time professional musicians. The work under taken by the Mancini String Quartet and its members is vast.
