ABOUT US

The Manila String Machine was established in 2008 by graduates of the University of the Philippines College of Music. 

This group has grown to be one of the most trusted and dependable music providers in the industry today. Providing music for corporate events, shows, concerts, recordings and for social events like weddings and parties. 

We offer cutting edge, custom made string quartet and string orchestra music.  Our genre encompasses a gamut of musical styles from classical to modern music, specializing in rock, pop, jazz and contemporary music.  The music we arrange and play is an eclectic blend of ideas from our members, making our music very unique– intelligently, artistically, and carefully written.

True to their name: as a “String Machine”, they produce different kinds of music, from classical to rock, using STRINGED instruments, and create an edge here in the Philippines by arranging music especially for the string quartet/ensemble

We are blessed to be regarded as one of the pioneering string quartets who play modern music here in the Philippines.
