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.
"It’s always been a dream of mine to have a string quartet at my ceremony and I couldn’t be happier with Quartet with a twist who played at our wedding ceremony. They have an extensive list of songs for you to choose from and are also open for requests if the song you want aren’t on the list. Communication was excellent. Lastly the music was amazing and magical. I would highly recommend the team to everyone looking for a live string quartet at their wedding/event"
