Superb music, Flexible locations, Expert organisation
Sarah Schelbach and her violinist husband Jai founded 16 Strings String Quartet in 2008. It was her very own wedding that 16 Strings String Quartet officially launched and the beginning of an amazing journey. Since humble beginnings they have grown to now have 7 String Quartets conveniently located along the eastern seaboard between Sydney and the Sunshine Coast, also covering many surrounding areas including Toowoomba.

We are very competitive and our musicians are supported and managed by Sarah and Vanessa in the office. When you hire 16 Strings you are hiring a business that has worked extremely hard to give our clients peace of mind that they have a group that is organised, professional and will bend over backwards to bring your corporate event entertainment, party and wedding ideas to fabulous fruition.

Apart from traditional classical music, our highly experienced musicians have built up a reputation for specialising in contemporary pop and jazz music, particularly arranged for our string quartet.

String quartet vs a string trio?
16 Strings String Quartet will provide the very best sound possible in party and wedding music. By having a string quartet (4 musicians) this means the glorious strains of four expert musicians playing in harmony. Our highly talented quartet reflects the modern band setup of a lead singer, a drummer, and electric guitar and a bass guitar. Put simply, more parts = better musical arrangements = better sound. If you need further persuading, simply view our list and hear samples of our playing.
16 Strings offers a string trio for those on a smaller budget or with limited space. Having one less part does means there is one less harmony and the volume isn’t as loud, but if you’re not overly concerned about how ‘full’ the songs sound harmonically and the smaller group suits the space better, then choose a trio.
