How can you book OBrien Strings for an engagement?
It's easy, and you can email or call Kate anytime
Let Kate know the date, time and duration of the
event for which you need musical entertainment. She will let you
know if she is available to play.
Kate O'Brien will be the violinist on your engagement.
She has a select group of violists, cellists, guitarists, trumpeters,
flutists, harpists and keyboard players, with whom she has been
playing for many years. If Kate is unavailable for your event, she
can find a substitute violinist if you wish; she will only send
a substitute with your permission.
Decide whether you need an ensemble or solo performance.
Get pricing information by emailing or phoning
Kate. She will discuss discounts for longer engagements and possible
additional travel fees for longer distances.
If you are ready to book OBrien Strings for your
event, Kate will send you two copies of her standard contract: one
to keep, and one to sign and send back with a deposit to hold the
date. You will need to provide the name, address and phone number
of the venue.
Deposits are generally $75 for totals of under
$350; $100 for total fees of $350 to $600; and $200+ for anything
Deciding about musical selections for your event
is the fun part! Kate loves to play whatever you truly wish to hear,
and will gladly create an arrangement of your special song, given
enough advance notice.
OBrien Strings ensembles can play outside from
Spring to early Fall, but the musicians must be in the shade (a
tree or tent is fine) to protect the varnish of fine instruments.
They must be under cover of a tent or porch in case of any rain
whatsoever. (If it is too cold for the musicians, it will be too
cold for your guests to enjoy being outside also.)
