The St. Charles String Quartet was founded in 2004, and takes its name from St. Charles Borromeo (1538-1584), patron saint of learning and the arts. They have earned the coveted position of the Washington D.C. region’s #1 String Quartet, won numerous awards, and top the charts nationally through the Gigmasters website. The SCQ is renowned for their versatility of genres, and ability to accommodate any request made by our valued clients, as they easily transition from classical, to pop, to jazz, and more. Members of the quartet are highly-educated from distinguished music schools, and have many years of rich professional experience including chamber music, symphony orchestras, and opera/musical/ballet performances. Education is also a valued aspect of the quartet’s career, and they enjoy being able to help create the next generation of musicians. Whether for weddings, receptions, corporate events, or parties, the SCQ is always a crowd favorite!
