LIVE MUSIC FOR
CORPORATE EVENTS

HIRE A STRING QUARTET LIVE MUSIC BAND

Add a touch of class to your next corporate event by hiring our world-class string quartet.

We’ve performed for over 500 corporate events Australia-wide.

Some of our recent corporate clients include Mercedes Benz, Commonwealth Bank of Australia, National Australia Bank, HSBC, G-Star Raw, Aston Martin, Crystal Cruises, Price Waterhouse Coopers, Woolworths, Harvey Norman, Suncorp and Telstra.

String Musicians Australia is registered with the Australian Government as trusted award-winning musicians and recording artists. Our full-time musicians perform with Australia’s leading symphony orchestra.

A STRING QUARTET IS BEST FOR CORPORATE EVENTS

For most corporate events, we recommend hiring a live string quartet as it provides ample volume and rich harmonies. A string quartet would be suitable for venues up to 200m2. This string band comprises two violins, viola and cello.

For a bigger wow factor, opt for a double string quartet, comprising four violins, two violas and two cellos. This large string band would be suitable for venues up to 400m2.

If you have something else in mind, just let us know. We have organised live music band performances comprising over fifty musicians.   

For those with a smaller budget, we offer string trio, string duo and solo violin or cello options.

Our fees are shown on our website.

'The event went well, and everyone appreciated how the quartet added to the overall sophistication of the event. All musicians in attendance where cordial, polite and of a high standard.'

HOW LONG SHOULD WE BOOK YOU FOR?

We suggest a booking time of 1-2 hours, regardless of whether your function is longer.

The first hour is when clients are most quiet, interested and wowed by our live music. As your event progresses, so will the volume output of your clients. Depending on the number of clients, we are usually not listened to after the first hour.

For small corporate events of up to forty clients, it is more likely that our music will continue to be heard and appreciated. As a result, our string quartet can perform up to four hours. For bookings over 1.5 hours, our musicians require a 10-minute break each hour. For bookings over 3 hours, our musicians require a meal each.

For large corporate events of over forty clients, we suggest hiring our musicians for 1-2 hours.

We suggest playing music over speakers after we have finished performing.

If your corporate event is large and you’d like us to perform longer, then please consider amplifying our music.

DO WE NEED TO AMPLIFY YOU?​

For venues up to 200m2 and with up to forty clients, we won’t need to be amplified.

For venues over 200m2 and with over forty clients, we recommend a 1-2 hour booking or amplification if you wish us to perform longer.

Your venue should be able to provide sound equipment and an engineer to assist. All we need is a microphone set up in front of the string quartet. Alternatively, they can set up a microphone in front of each musician. Either way, a 15-minute soundcheck will be required, so please account for this when completing your booking form. The soundcheck should take place before your clients arrive on site.

WHAT MUSIC WILL YOU PLAY?

We will perform a variety of classical music, pop music and jazz to suit the ambience.

As a result, you need not worry about selecting the music.

By allowing us to select the music, we can minimise downtime between each song performance.

Client requests will increase the downtime between songs. 

However, our clients have the option to select up to four songs to be performed.
