ISQ is the sexy, sophisticated and edgy manifestation of the classical Imperial String Quartet.
In 2009 the Imperial String Quartet took a new turn, with some female members setting out to perform a new repertoire of contemporary music. Entitled ISQ, the all-female line up of two violins, viola and cello are the more ‘rock’ side of the Imperial String Quartet. Highly sophisticated, very edgy, they are the perfect entertainment for large corporate events and private parties where the music is more of a feature and something unique is required.
ISQ – sophisticated women performing edgy contemporary music. Visually appealing and aurally addictive.

Having developed out of the Imperial String Quartet to capture a unique space in the world of string quartets, ISQ looks and sounds like no other string quartet.
Each member of ISQ has been classically trained, but has also vast experience working in recording studios, live in concert with rock bands, and appearing on television and radio.
From recording sessions to rock tours, ISQ provides the most professional and quality performance possible, and their experience ensures that musicians and promoters find them outstanding to work with.
As a feature groups for high profile and exclusive events, ISQ performs with a fifth member on percussion. This adds a totally new dimension to their sound and is perfect to ensure the appeal is still sophisticated, but is also very modern and edgy. They play with both a male and female percussionist to suit the needs of the client.
The repertoire includes some of the greatest contemporary hits, making them the perfect event and party entertainment. From Radiohead to The Beatles, Michael Jackson to Cole Porter, the girls’ repertoire is unique and written specifically for them.
The girls tailor their ‘look’ to reflect the event: for after-work functions their look is reminiscent of sophisticated corporate executives: pencil skirts and crisp cut shirts; for private parties, jeans, heels and sexy tops is their preferred attire.
