Creating an atmosphere of warmth & engagement at your special event.
Quince String Quartet was founded in 2018 by professional violinist & Virginia native Faith Hofma. QSQ is a network of classically-trained, professional musicians who perform for special events in a variety of musical genres. We are dedicated to creating the right environment for our clients’ events & fostering an atmosphere of engagement and warmth. We perform at events in Richmond, Virginia, and beyond.
Quince String Quartet may have just begun, but QSQ came about from musical partnerships nearly a decade old. Friends and colleagues, we have performed together in various ensembles and at numerous events over the years. We bring with us the professionalism of a seasoned ensemble.
We love bringing music to our community and creating the right setting for the events of our clients. We hope to meet you soon!
