Icon Strings is a collective of some of the top chamber musicians in London. They are all prize-winning graduates of the leading London and International Conservatoires, with busy global performing careers. Icon Strings combines the highest level of musicianship with a touch of glamour, and our themed programmes aim to convey the beauty of music through energetic and heartfelt performances.
Icon Strings are passionate about bringing a wide variety of genres to as broad an audience as possible. In the last year, Icon Strings was invited to take up a residency of classical quartet concerts at Home House, and currently they are giving a hugely successful set of candlelight concerts in association with TodayTix at the Actor's Church in Covent Garden. Other collaborations include concerts for Alborz Fitness, the Ashdown Forest Foundation, and the Landmark Arts Centre. On our Events page you can keep up to date with these and other exciting projects we have planned.
The members of Icon Strings are individually making their mark on the UK and International music scene. They have played at many renowned venues throughout the UK and abroad, such as the Royal Albert Hall, the Wigmore Hall, Beijing Bird's Nest Stadium and Het Concertgebouw. Live broadcasts include BBC Radio 3's In Tune and Late Junction, the BBC Proms, and Podium Witteman (Holland) to name just a few. Alongside this, our musicians are much sought after as session players, and can be heard on numerous albums and soundtracks, including Downton Abbey, Beverley Knight, Little Simz, Blue Planet and The Matrix.

Music education is vitally important to Icon Strings. We have performed our themed Kids’ Concerts as far afield as Japan, and coach on prestigious music courses, including Benslow, ProCorda and Cadenza. We look forward to more outreach work over the coming year.
