The brainchild of Irish music entrepreneur Conor O’Brien, this multi-award-winning music collective combines energetic and passionate performances of both timeless classics and Top 40 hits with superb customer service. With an eclectic playlist and the flexibility to tailor to the needs of each and every client, it’s no surprise they have become the Twin Cities’ go-to string quartet.
The Loring String Quartet performs for 75-100 events per year, ranging from weddings and funerals to corporate events, intimate parties, and formal recitals. Bringing the artistic quality of the concert stage to each and every performance, their audiences and clients are consistently WOWed with their fresh approach, polished sound, and astounding versatility. Equally at home with Beethoven and Beyoncé, Bach and the Beach Boys, Brahms and The Beatles (and that’s just the Bs!), LSQ loves nothing more than a fun, diverse setlist!
The musicians of this collective have enormous experience in performing music of all styles and genres. They can be heard with major symphony orchestras such as the Minnesota Orchestra and Chicago Symphony. They are also frequent performers with smaller groups like the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra and east coast ensembles The Knights and A Far Cry. They have played major venues such as the Target Center, Xcel Energy Center, on MTV, and on Saturday Night Live, with artists as diverse as Michael Bublé, Yo-Yo Ma, Kanyé West, Mannheim Steamroller, Josh Groban, Stevie Wonder, The Who, Jamiroquai, Celtic Thunder, Idina Menzel, and many more solo artists and touring Broadway shows.
