Artist Bio

Headed up by violinist Amber Read, Zest String Quartet specialises in elegant yet dynamic live music for corporate and private events in Auckland and the upper North Island. As experienced performers, we’ll help you draw your guests into the immediacy of the moment, providing an ambience of effortless elegance. Versatile, dynamic and sophisticated, our music helps you craft an intimate experience which will echo in the memories of your guests long after they’ve said their farewells. Zest is perfect for weddings, parties, conferences, and other corporate events.

We are able to perform as a quartet, trio, duo or even solo, to fit with your venue or budget considerations. Our repertoire ranges from Mozart to Moon River, Bach to Bollywood and Ed Sheeran to Studio Ghibli – below is just a sample of our collection so if you don’t see your favourite please get in touch to enquire. Zest has performed for Weddings, Functions and Events across the North Island at venues such as Auckland Art Gallery, SkyCity Events Centre, The Heritage Hotel, Helena Bay Lodge, Bracu, private homes and gardens, and even beaches.

If you’re running a zero waste or climate positive event, look no further than Zest! Our commitment to creating meaningful change in our communities through positive climate action means that in response to the unavoidable Co2 emissions from our travel we support the award-winning food rescue organisation Fair Food.
