A Classical Spin on All Genres

Resonance String Quartet is an ensemble that was founded in 2013. Since then it has played at numerous different types of functions including corporate events, wedding ceremonies, receptions and parties. The formation of Resonance String Quartet was brought about by the musician’s mutual love and experience for chamber music as well as their studies abroad. The members of the Quartet are all in their own rights accomplished musicians and are highly qualified on their respective instruments. Resonance String Quartet’s repertoire is extensive and they give the audience a classical spin on many genres of music, including Jazz, Kwela, Pop and Soul.

Although recently formed, each member has also had a wealth of chamber music experience with various other chamber groups.  This includes playing at the National Arts festival in Grahamstown and Festival Culturel International De Musique Symphonique in Algeria and the Standard Bank Joy of Jazz accompanying Gregory Porter. They have also played on CD/DVD recordings with a number of artists like Judith Siphuma, Sibongile Khumalo, Zahara, Bala Brothers, HHP and many more. The biggest highlight for 2013 was being asked to play at the movie premiere of Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom held in Johannesburg, then being invited to play at ANC Nelson Mandela’s Memorial Service held in Polokwane at Peter Mokaba Stadium with the amazing Soprano Pretty Yende.

In their solo careers the members of the Resonance String Quartet have enjoyed the privilege of performing a number of concertos as well as solo recitals in South Africa and abroad. The quartet members freelance as orchestral musicians with the Johannesburg Philharmonic Orchestra (JPO), Johannesburg Festival Orchestra (JFO) and the Johannesburg Music Initiative (JMI).
