SEE IF A WEDDING STRING QUARTET / STRING ENSEMBLE IS AVAILABLE FOR YOUR EVENT
What will you wear?
What time do you arrive?
What equipment does the client need to provide?
- 1 chair for each performer, no armrests please
- One large umbrella for solo or duo (if outside)
- Two large umbrellas for trio or quartet (if outside)
- If possible, a small, private space to leave our cases – especially the cello case
What if we are getting married outside?
- One large umbrella for solo or duo
- Two large umbrellas for trio or quartet
Do we need a permit if in public?
It is most appreciated if a meal can be provided for bookings that are longer than 2hrs.
Do you need to Bump In?
As we play acoustically (no AV required) and have reasonably small hand held cases, we can enter any venue fairly quickly and smoothly, with no need to enter throgh security at a large venue like Crown Casino.
Can we request songs not listed on the set list?
Some special requests are possible and are quoted individually based on the song. However not all pieces work as a string instrumental – especially songs heavy reliant on vocals, piano or drums.
A minimum of 30 days notice is required for requests not listed on our set list. This gives time for our arranger to score the piece, however a high priority arrangement can be made in less than 30 days notice at a higher rate.
From our experience we strongly discourage 1 song for the bridesmaids and a different song for the bride. It is very disjointed and doesn’t create the seamless effect seen in the movies where the realities of turning pages and counting beats in do not apply 😂
What elements are usually in the ensemble?
Great for small guest numbers or a budget option
DUO: Violin & Cello
Great for small guest numbers, small venues/ limited space or a budget option with a melody and accompaniment but limited in amount of music available (max 3 hr booking)
TRIO: 2 Violins & Cello
Great for approximately 100 guests numbers; with a melody & fuller accompaniment; Not all music is available (max 3 hr booking)
QUARTET: 2 Violins, Viola, & Cello
The full sound & all musical options; Most clients with 100+ guests book a quartet; Especially if the event is outdoors where sound escapes
