Elizabeth Ings started learning the violin at school in Norfolk before studying with Maria Lidka for four years at the Royal College of Music. She is now a successful teacher in Dorset and Salisbury.

Cathy Stevens was a pupil at the Yehudi Menuhin School. She went on to study at the Royal Academy of Music and as a postgraduate student with Peter Schidlof. She has worked with leading orchestras and contemporary ensembles such as the English Chamber Orchestra, London Sinfonietta and Fires of London, as well as with Keith Tippett and Frank Perry in the field of free improvisation. She also has her own group, the Europa String Choir, in which she plays the violectra (6-string viola).

Michael Moorsom was head chorister at Ripon Cathedral and a scholar at Clifton College before taking a music degree and studying cello with Christopher Bunting.

Customer Feedback
Company Summer Party at Compton Arces, Italian Villa/Garden

I am very happy with Keysworth String Quartet who played at BP Wytch Farm's bbq on Aug 5 at Compton Acres. They arrived early and they were very professional. They added something special to the beautiful setting of the Italian garden. I would consider using them again for my future functions. thanks and best regards
