Quartet With A Twist (QWAT) is a string quartet based in Perth, Western Australia, that has been providing high-quality music for weddings, events and corporate events since 2012.

The ‘Twist’ in QWAT’s name stands for their unique instrumentation – instead of the standard two violins, viola and cello, the cello has been replaced with a double bass! As a result, QWAT’s sound is unique and sets them apart from other string quartets.

The core of QWAT is comprised of musicians who have been classically trained and graduated from The University of Western Australia. We also occasionally call on other musicians with similar backgrounds and a wealth of experience. Our musicians are also engaged in many orchestral positions around Perth, including the Perth Symphony Orchestra, Perth Chamber Orchestra, Fremantle Chamber Orchestra, and the WA Philharmonic (WA Ballet), just to name a few.

With their fun personalities and high calibre of musicianship, Quartet With A Twist has got you covered for your next event.



Quartet with a Twist played beautifully at our wedding ceremony! They helped create such a wonderful setting for our special day and were able to cater to all of our musical requests! Our guests loved the addition of a quartet, and it really made everyone’s day! I highly recommend them to any and all for such memorable events."
