About Koco String Quartet...
The Koco String Quartet are a young and exuberant string quartet from the South-East of England currently playing together professionally in London. The four members met four years ago as undergraduates at the University of Leeds. Each of them is a versatile and experienced performer in the fields of orchestral, chamber, contemporary and popular music.
As individuals they have played in places as far-reaching as Dallas, Tokyo and Mauritius as well as established venues across London and the North of England both as soloists and as a group. This includes places such as the Queen Elizabeth Hall, Royal Festival Hall, Fairfield Hall, York Racecourse and the Universities of Leeds and Leeds Metropolitan. The group has also performed at numerous events and functions in many parts of the UK, including a recent appearance at the 'Rhythms of the World' Festival in Hertfordshire with the band 'October Game'. Other ventures in the field of popular music have included work with established pop acts such as folk artist Emmy the Great, Imogen Heap and Corrine Bailey Rae. Their varied musical talents have gained them appearances at Glastonbury and Reading Festivals and as soloists on BBC Television & Radio.
The quartet's repertoire includes quartets, duos and trios from the mainstream classical repertory such as Dvorak's American Quartet, Haydn's Sunrise Quartet and Pachelbel's Canon to arrangements of light, popular, film and TV music including popular 20th Century hits such as "She" by Charles Aznavour, "When I'm Sixty-Four" by the Beatles and "Summertime" by George Gershwin.
