Severn String Quartet is a small select pool of experienced professional musicians working as a string quartet.

They have recorded for BBC Radio 4, providing incidental music for such plays as The Rime of the Ancient Mariner and Orchestra Paloma and have also recorded the music for Channel 4’s series Victoria and Albert. The quartet also features on the albums of the cult pop group Porcupine Tree and the Japanese vocalist Halo.
Members of the group also work as freelance orchestral musicians and have performed with a variety of ensembles and orchestras including BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, English Symphony Orchestra, Joensuu City Orchestra (Finland), Orchestra of Welsh National Opera, London City Ballet, Bristol (Emerald) Ensemble, and Bristol Old Vic Theatre Company.
