About Booking Classical Ensembles

Classical Trios, Quartets and Quintets: As far as classical music is concerned, the term "quartet" is an ensemble of four players, the most popular in Classical chamber music being the string quartet, which is made up of two violins, a viola and a violoncello. The string quintet is a common type of quintet. It is similar to the string quartet, but with two violas, two violoncellos, or more rarely, the addition of a double bass. Another common grouping in classical music is the wind quintet, usually consisting of flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon and horn. A 6+ member classical music group is referred to as an orchestra; a small orchestra with fifteen to thirty members (violins, violas, cellos, double basses, woodwind or brass instruments) is called a chamber orchestra. GigSalad has premier classical ensembles, including string trios and classical duos, available to perform at your next private event, corporate function or wedding ceremony.

Some things to consider when hiring a classical ensemble are to make sure you listen to audio and watch video clips. This will ensure that you truly do book the best for your next event! Next, you want to get references. Talk to people in the area about the ensemble and get feedback. Finally, get a contract. Many professional classical ensembles require a deposit to secure them at your next event. Make sure to read through the contract carefully before contracting the ensemble for your party.
