What to Expect
Repertoire will be decided and agreed upon well in advance of the event. I'll answer all questions and concerns in the days preceding the event so the performance will be seamless. I'll arrive 30-45 minutes early to set up in the space and confirm sound/details with organizers. I will bring music stands, music, instruments (except piano) and stand lights if necessary. If piano is being used, I ask that it be tuned before the event. We will need armless chairs for the performers with access to an electrical outlets .

Additional Booking Notes
Acoustic instruments sometimes need light amplification if there is background noise (ie. cocktail party). I am very careful with the dynamic of amplification if it is needed. The venue will determine if this is needed.
