About

Impromptu Quartet

The Impromptu Quartet is a group of 4 friends and colleagues that have worked and performed together regularly over the last few years.

Our core players are:


John Dickinson, violin

James Widden, violin/viola

Eleanor Parry-Dickinson, violin/viola

Alison Holford, cello


We also have a bank of players on file that we work with regularly and are more than capable of filling in should any member of the group be unavailable for your event.

This ensures that we are able to take on far more of the events than our individual availability would allow!


Our Musicians perform regularly with Orchestras including as The Philharmonia, London Philharmonic Orchestra, BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, London Mozart Players, London Sinfonietta, Britten Sinfonia, as well as with with Pop Artists including Antony & the Johnson's, Professor Green, Tim Minchin, and many more. As well as featuring on film scores including the recent release of Marvel Comic's Captain America and Iron Man 3

We have played at venues including The Royal Albert Hall, Royal Festival Hall, Barbican, Birmingham Symphony Hall and numerous hotels and private venues including Claridges, The Savoy and the Hilton.

Our client list is wide and varied from Barclays Bank and the major political parties to actors and musicians, and of course numerous private wedding functions.
