Providing the gorgeous and romantic sound of a classical string quartet

Aurora Quartet were “absolutely phenomenal

- Eleanor Leith

The Aurora Quartet is made up of four highly experienced musicians in the North East of Scotland. Since forming in 2017, Aurora have performed at countless weddings, events and corporate functions to glowing reviews.

Why are we so good?

When you book us, Aden, Alexandria, Laurie and Gareth will be your performers. Unlike many other quartets who operate more like an agency, the Aurora Quartet work together which means we bring our exceptional performing abilities, our wealth of experience and our sterling work ethic to every event.


Sincere thanks to Gareth and Aden for providing a very special afternoon concert for our parents’ Golden Wedding party. From my initial enquiry, Gareth was tremendously helpful. He kept in touch regularly and suggested the ‘right’ music for the occasion.

The concert was absolutely fantastic - Gareth and Aden are so talented! It was very special to have them play for us in our home. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it! I have no hesitation in recommending the Aurora Duo.

Aurora played music at our marriage ceremony and at the drinks reception afterwards. As I knew it would be, their music was one of the highlights of my day. Gareth goes above and beyond to get it just exactly right for you and is an absolute joy to work with. My wedding guests are still talking about the Ave Maria they played during the signing of the register; it was absolutely beautiful and most moving. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

From our first enquiry, you were extremely helpful and proactive. We really appreciated you sharing your wisdom and experience with us to help shape our plans in advance of the day. Replies were always so prompt, detailed and thoughtful. On the day, when certain things don't always run smoothly, we had no concerns at all about Aurora Quartet delivering and it was so nice to have at least one thing we knew we didn't have to stress about. Your performance was beautiful and many guests complimented us on the quality of the music. Every small detail that we'd talked about in advance of the day was exactly as discussed, even our preferences on one or two sentimental songs for the drinks reception. I remember you saying you would make sure we were in earshot for them, which is exactly what you did. It meant a lot to hear the songs we'd requested. I would certainly recommend Aurora Quartet to anyone looking to have beautiful music performed at any special event. Excellent customer service and even better music. Thank you so much again.


A heartfelt thank you for helping create the perfect day. It was a joy to see you both enjoying playing as well as experiencing live music again.

There was a lot of appreciation for the Aurora Duo - extremely talented musicians! What a delight to have Gareth & Nataliia play – we truly felt like we had two talented musical friends joining our wedding day. Gareth recommended the perfect playlist, accommodated our requests and popped in a few extra songs to suit our guests. It created a magical, relaxing ambience for both us and our guests. Thank you again

“Amazing! Couldn't have asked for better! Played wonderfully for my ceremony, and throughout the drinks reception, all of my friends and family complimented how good they both were. Gareth kept in touch, and knew more about timings than I did, which made the whole thing easier to plan! If I was going to do it all again, I'd pick them over and over again! Not to mention the price is exceptional for the quality of what you get!”

“Aurora Quartet were absolutely phenomenal at my wedding. They played while guests arrived into the church, when I walked down the aisle and also during the ceremony with Pandy Arthur (soprano) singing. Back at The Marcliffe Hotel for our reception we enjoyed another hour and oh what a breath taking performance they gave us! I requested a few songs and nothing was too much bother for Gareth to organise with fantastic communication from start to finish. Thank you Aurora Quartet for making our special day filled with such beautiful music.”

“We were fortunate to have the Aurora Quartet perform at my wife's surprise 40th birthday yesterday. I was looking for a classical performance that our guests would enjoy and Aurora quartet gave us that and then some. Even from my first contact with Gareth from the Aurora quartet, I was impressed by the extent to which he was willing to work with me to find out what would best suit our audience. At this event which was held at the Marcliffe, Cults we found the group of talented and accomplished musicians to be warm and friendly as we sat back and listened to them serenade us all with beautiful classical renditions of well-known pop songs. The Aurora Quartet gave my wife's 40th a special, unique feel making it one celebration that would stay in the memory for a long, long time. I would totally recommend the Aurora quartet for any wedding, party or function. You won’t regret it. They were superb!”
