Bellini Strings was formed in 1994 by graduates of the Birmingham Conservatoire and the Royal Northern College of Music.
Bellini Strings quickly established itself as one of the best function ensembles in the Midlands, specialising in providing music for weddings and business events. During the first 5 years, they performed at the Bewdley and Bromsgrove Festivals, the Elgar Society in Malvern, the Birmingham International Film Festival and the Birmingham Children’s Hospital, in the presence of the Queen and Prince Philip. TV appearances include an episode of the popular BBC1 series ‘Preston Front’ (as a quartet at a wedding!), Central Television and BBC Midlands Today. In 1997, Bellini Strings was privileged to provide the music for the G8 Summit Leader’s Reception in Birmingham, serenading the likes of Tony Blair, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Boris Yeltsin and Helmut Kohl. The last 10 years have been hectic for the Bellini Strings: playing again for Her Majesty the Queen at the D-Day Memorial Service in Coventry; establishing major links with various prestigious venues such as Warwick Castle (Tussauds Attractions Ltd), Birmingham Art Gallery & Museum, Lygon Arms and The Belfry Golf Club; and performing at hundreds of weddings, big and small. Drawing on a vast and varied repertoire list, and long experience, Bellini Strings – as a quartet and a trio – have given countless special days that extra touch of class!
