The Auriga Strings

The Auriga Strings, founded in 2007, were formed by Iona Hassan who wanted to find a way of bringing the amazing musicians she had worked with in the past to play in idyllic locations around the South-West after she moved there. Having such great musicians to call upon at anytime night or day was fortunate indeed and has resulted in the group growing in number over a relatively short space of time.


We now also have an orchestral wing, The Auriga Ensemble, who can provide top quality choral accompaniment for choral societies of all sizes. Whether it be a small chamber choir requiring just string quartet or larger choirs requiring full chamber orchestra, The Auriga Ensemble can provide you with a vibrant and hugely experienced band of players at a very competitive rate.


We are also available for studio recordings and can provide live backing for singer/songwriters or string backing for your band, from rock to reggae.


Check out the rest of our website to see what we've been up to or to find out where you can catch us in our next concert.


See you all soon!
