Do you setup before the booking time starts?
Yes! We arrive 15 minutes prior to each booking to setup so we can start performing on time. If you require us to arrive earlier to setup, please adjust your start booking time accordingly.
What are your requirements for a performance?
We require one armless chair per musician to be setup where you'd like us to perform. We also require adequate light to read our music. For outdoor performances, we require protection from the rain, wind and direct sunlight, as our instruments are extremely valuable.
How much performance space do you require?
A string quartet requires 2.5m x 2m, a string trio requires 2m x 2m, a string duo requires 1.5m x 1.5m and a solo violin, cello or viola requires 1.5m x 1m.
I'm not a musician. How do I know if I'm booking the best musicians?
Please listen to our recordings and listen for quality of sound, intonation, phrasing and togetherness. If another website offers recordings, simply compare them. We are full-time members of Australia's leading symphony orchestras. It takes a very high calibre of musicianship to be accepted into these orchestras.
Do you perform acoustically or amplified?
We mostly perform acoustically. However, if the venue is very large and there is a PA team, they can set up microphones in front of us. We don't provide amplification equipment.
Do you perform special requests?
Yes! We perform up to three special requests at no additional cost.
How much do you charge?
