Our Dream Coordination Team

Sarah Schelbach and her violinist husband Jai founded 16 Strings String Quartet in 2008. Since very beginnings Sarah had a desire to take 16 Strings around the country and now quite a few years later she can proudly say she’s done just that. With String Quartets conveniently located along the eastern seaboard we are very privileged to be able to be part of so many people’s special day.

Although we have more then one string quartet 16 Strings String Quartet is not a large booking agency. You’re still working with a small team of musicians and professionals. We have two types of people who work with us – we have the amazing musicians who plays the beautiful music that you’ll experience at your special event. Then we have our Dream Team – Sarah and Vanessa working busily behind the scenes bringing your corporate event entertainment, party or wedding music to fabulous fruition.

So lets meet the dream coordination team…

Sarah Schelbach
Director & Coordinator

Sarah CroppedIt was her very own wedding that 16 Strings String Quartet officially launched and the beginning of an amazing journey. Sarah’s role includes many responsibilities and she is the driving force behind what makes 16 Strings tick. She oversees customer service, coordinating musicians and music arrangements, recordings, and lots more. Although 16 Strings have more then one string quartet group it was important to Sarah that the business still remain localised by handpicking all the musicians with whom she works with closely on a weekly basis. Mummy of two and passionate about all things business, Sarah loves that she can bring the 16 Strings ‘sound’ to so many people around Australia.
