Hi! I'M SAGE

CELLIST & FOUNDER

Every time I play, I am reminded of the butterflies I felt in my very first cello lesson. After studying the piano and flute for many years, it wasn't until I found the cello that I finally discovered the great musical love of my life. Fun fact! The actual love of my life (my husband) is also a cellist.

I named my beautiful 100-year old Czech cello, Costin, after the Prince Charming from a fairytale novel. Together we have travelled the world on study trips to Europe, Canada and the U.S.A, and opera tours across Asia. In 2017 I graduated with a Bachelor of Music (Degree with Honours) from the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music. 

 

I've had the fairytale moment of a string quartet playing at my happily ever after, and would love to perform for yours. 

Briar VALUES

EXPERIENCE

Briar String Quartet has been serenading couples in love since 2016. With years of experience as both classical musicians, and wedding specialists, we pride ourselves on providing a service based on trust, reliability, preparedness, industry knowledge, and professionalism.

LOVE

Love is the reason! Having been through the journey of planning our own weddings, we understand the need for vendors that display warmth, kindness, and understanding during what can be both a joyful and stressful time. Playing you both down the aisle, is the best job in the world!

EXCELLENCE

The magic is in the details. Every step from your initial enquiry to the final note played, is handled with care and attention to detail. We value quality over quantity, and have arranged most of our own repertoire to ensure the standard of every performance is worthy of your special day!
