Home / About Us

Over the past fifteen years Wired String Quartet have carved out a niche for themselves as sought-after performers of live music at weddings, functions and special events in the Western Cape. Their success has been driven by the quality of their performances, the range of musical styles, the repertoire they have at their fingertips and their special energy.

Wired String Quartet is a family group with the two violin parts being played by siblings Anouk and Vicente, and the viola by Alliz, Vicente’s wife. The cellist Ariella is a longstanding friend who has been playing chamber music with the family for nearly two decades.

Wired’s first violinist and manager is Anouk Smit, a chamber music specialist who has performed all over the world. She followed her violin performance diploma from the University of Stellenbosch with postgraduate violin performance degrees from UCT and the Royal Northern College of Music in England.

Should a member of the quartet be unavailable on the date of your event, Wired will call on one of our highly experienced and talented reserve players who regularly perform with our quartet.
