About
Millington Strings performs most often as a string quartet (two violins, viola and cello). Clients occasionally request a quintet (with string bass), a trio, duo or even a solo performer, and we are happy to accommodate. While we frequently perform the more usual classical string quartet literature, we also perform a wide and eclectic repertoire, ranging from ragtime, blues, jazz, and opera favorites, to ethnic, pop and rock music from all eras.

The group's founder and leader, Steve Millington, is also a composer/arranger, which contributes to the unusual and uniquely wide-ranging repertoire we can perform. We welcome special requests and will create custom arrangements of music not in our active repertoire. We have two of our videos here on the Gigmasters site; you can find more on YouTube by searching on Millington Strings.

Steve and company did an amazing job. They were very professional, were able to quickly learn the song for my wife's procession, and a pleasure to do business with. Very highly recommended!

I booked Millington Strings for my proposal, in the citizen hotel's suite balcony. They arrived about an hour before their start time to set up, and started playing on time. My fiance loved them, they sounded wonderful, and made our night special.

Millington Strings played for my wedding on August 7, and they did a fantastic job! We booked them a bit last minute and only gave them a few weeks to prepare, and we gave them almost NO guidance on what to play (we only had two specific song requests). They did a phenomenal job playing a wide variety of genres and following the cues provided at the event (playing the Game of Thrones and Star Trek themes after finding out during the toasts that we liked those shows, for example). Very flexible, very accommodating, very talented! I highly recommend booking them.

Great musicianship combined with a sense of openness to all styles of music in a non-begrudging manner not usually found in the classical world. They simply exhibit a love of music. Completely accomodating!

Steve Millington was very friendly and professional when coordinating our event. Our guest, including my wife, were very impressed with the dual that performed during our ceremony. The arrangements were discussed far in advanced so there were no issues during the entire wedding ceremony. We would definately recommend them to friends and family.

We enjoyed the Millington Strings at our wedding very much- they performed very well and were very accommodating. They are experts at what they do and have a wide repertoire- of not only great classical music but many popular pop selections as well. Great choice for a wedding or any other kind of formal event- I would highly recommend.
