Kester String Quartet is a string quartet consisting of two violins, a viola and a cello. The string quartet is based in Penang, Malaysia and provides string quartet music for weddings, garden weddings, ceremonies, receptions, cocktails, parties, corporate functions and other events. Kester String Quartet was formed at the end of year 2012. The members of Kester String Quartet are Kester Hong (violin), Alyssa Khong (violin), Khoo Wei Min (viola), and Jeremy Tan (cello).

Alyssa Khong, Jeremy Tan, Khoo Wei Min and Kester Hong first met each other during their participation in Penang State Symphony Orchestra & Chorus and have been performing music as well as organizing concerts together. They have been working individually with other string quartets before Kester String Quartet was formed. Due to the frequent requests for string quartet to perform at weddings and other events, they decided to form Kester String Quartet to provide string quartet music. The members of Kester String Quartet are also members of another performing group, Ensemble Koschka. With their experience, they are able to suggest suitable music to suit the occasion and the venue. Their repertoire spans across baroque to 20th century music.

Kester String Quartet has successfully dealt directly with local and overseas clients from Singapore, Hong Kong, China, Taiwan, Japan, Australia, United Kingdom, United States of America and Germany. Besides dealing directly with clients, Kester String Quartet has also collaborated with various wedding and event planners such as Touching Hearts Wedding Concepts.
