Welcome to Alternative Quartet's official site
Alternative Quartet is a string quartet with a difference. Our extraordinarily talented and award-winning musicians – all of whom have come up through the ranks of the National Youth Orchestra of Trinidad and Tobago and are leaders in our chosen instrumental fields – play effortlessly together in a dynamic electric ensemble that gives strength, depth and passion to the music that we love. The traditional sound of the acoustic violin, viola and cello are brought to life with high impact and energetic qualities that are capable of infusing the smallest to the largest of venues – including outdoor performances – with rich, enigmatic and evocative melodies that add vibrancy and specialty to any event or show. Born and raised in Trinidad & Tobago, Alternative Quartet has been delighting Caribbean audiences with our musical gifts and world class performances. We provide the music for weddings, parties, corporate events, festivals & other performances, bringing a creative twist to the traditional perception of a string quartet ensemble. Aspiring to reinvent the way that we feel about classical music, Alternative Quartet provides a classically modern experience and aims to reach a wider, global audience with our versatile repertoire, exceptional skill and thoroughly unique style.
Our VisionAlternative Quartet strives to not only become the premier string quartet in the Caribbean, but also to succeed on a global scale by bringing our talent, creativity, versatility and uniqueness to the wider world.
Our MissionTo develop our talents and reach out to new audiences in order to reinvent the way in which classical music is perceived, by playing original, captivating music that is comparable with the international market.
