Blue Topaz String Trio is one of our unique string ensembles and is our best selling string group.
Our String Trio is an elegant but modern alternative to the traditional string quartet. If you love to hear mainly modern songs played on strings, choose our best selling String Trio.
“Blue Topaz Strings were so professional. Quick to respond and talented. I absolutely loved having them play for our wedding and would hire them again in a heartbeat”
Formed of two violins and double bass, the String Trio specialises in pop music instrumental covers from all eras, and also plays jazz and classical styles.
The inclusion of the double bass adds a fantastic energy by plucking and tapping the strings for the pop and jazz numbers, whilst also providing a rich and sonorous sound using the bow for the classical pieces, meaning you get the best of all musical worlds!
Our best selling String Trio is a perfect alternative to the String Quartet if you would prefer mainly modern pop song repertoire, whilst still offering beautiful classical choices.
Here is an example of how the String Trio can perform a variety of musical styles for a wedding ceremony.
Blue Topaz String Trio also specialise in playing at drinks receptions, wedding breakfasts and even the first dance! We recommend upbeat and joyful pop music for the drinks reception, a selection of jazz styles for the wedding breakfast, and a romantic slow song for your first dance.
Having pre ceremony music creates a lovely calm and welcoming atmosphere for your guests, whilst they wait for the ceremony to begin.
We recommend a selection of classical music favourites such as:

Our String Trio is a unique line up of two violins and double bass. We have found that by including a double bass in our trio, we can add an extra vitality to the pop and jazz pieces when the bass player taps and plucks the strings.
A string quartet has two violins, viola and cello. We find that this combination of instruments is more suited to playing classical repertoire such as Handel, Bach, Mozart and Schubert.
Absolutely not! Our String Trio appeals to all age ranges. We have played for Bar Mitzvahs and Bat Mitzvahs, at hundreds of weddings & anniversary parties for couples of all ages, for corporate events spanning young professionals to CEOs, plus many a big birthday to the age of ninety!
We arrange every piece of music for our String Trio and choose music that we love and that we know will work perfectly for two violins and double bass. With an outstanding pop music section, our String Trio repertoire is continually updated and enhanced so that we remain cutting edge whether clients are choosing pop, jazz or classical string music.
We also arrange and take music commissions on request, and no song is too big, too small, too outlandish or unusual!
