Our name reflects who we are as a group. Because our other passion, besides music, is animals. Yes, music and animals might not seem related, but we love our pets so much that we decided to donate a portion of all proceeds to charitable organizations dedicated to animal welfare.

GOOP - Los Angeles City Guide
"This string ensemble, made up of four friends and music school grads, is a fun and elegant option for virtually any type of event...they’ll gladly play everything from Pachelbel’s Canon to Guns N’ Roses with equal aplomb." goop
"I was initially indifferent when my wife suggested we have a string quartet for our outdoor wedding ceremony, but I am so glad I listened to her as we were able to seamlessly customize the tone of our ceremony to our music selection! ... you really have more creativ[e] latitude with your ceremony when using a live performing group like Cattus Quartet. My wife also really wanted to walk up to Sweet Disposition by Temper Trap, but specifically wanted me to see her for the first time at a specific part in that song; Cattus Quartet made that happen without a hitch. If you are looking for a string quartet, go with Cattus Quartet. If you are thinking of using a stereo, please listen to your fiancee, reconsider, and then go with Cattus Quartet."

"We made the decision the hire a string trio for our wedding ceremony despite it being over our initial budget plan. I couldn't help myself...I played the cello for many years and just love a great in-person trio or quartet! But I wondered leading up to the big day if I really should have sprung for that, would it be worth it...well, Cattus Quartet was worth every penny. They were a true delight to work with, taking the time to meet with my mom and me when we were in town to discuss our music choices and the style I was hoping they'd play in. The day of the wedding, despite some pretty intense wind, the quality of their music was superb and it came through beautifully in our outdoor ceremony. I had some specific requests in terms of the tone I hoped they would play my processional song, and they executed exactly what I was hoping for. The over all effect of their music was just so lovely and personal, and frankly it calmed my nerves as I was about to walk down the aisle. Thank you, Cattus Quartet, for being so kind and accommodating, and for creating such beautiful music on our special day."
"Cattus Quartet is by far one of the most impressive groups I’ve ever booked. I had a great feeling about them leading up to our [corporate event] since they were so responsive and knowledgeable in our correspondence. Their performance on the day of was even better. Hiring string quartets has been hit or miss in my experience, but this group sounded simply amazing. They were a complete hit (listen to their Sweet Child!). Thank you so much, Cattus Quartet! I can’t wait to hire you again."

"The service they provided was outstanding. As a professional musician myself, I can appreciate the very high level of their playing... They really made a special day even more special and perfect. I would not hesitate in recommending the Cattus Quartet for any function. Their repertoire is vast, ranging from heavy metal to Bach - truly amazing - and everything they play has an attention to detail that would not be out of place in any top concert hall in the world. ...If anyone needs another reason to hire this group, they even donate a portion of their earnings to animal charities. AWESOME!"
