Q. What happens if a Quartet member is ill or on tour ? A. We have built up a select number of highly trained musicians who are friends and know our repertoire well. So if one of us cannot make it on the day we bring in the best musicians from the North West.
Q. What happens if it rains ? A. Unfortunately if it rains we cannot play outside, it would damage the instruments, we need to be under cover.
Q. Can we play outside? A. We would love to be invited to play outside if the weather is fine although we cannot play in direct sunshine, it would damage the instruments. We can usually find suitable shade.
Q. What do you need ? A. All we require is 4 arm less chairs. Please ask the venue.
Q. How do we look after you on the day? A. A few light refreshments - drinks and sandwiches etc would be most welcome on the day if we are needed to be at your event for more than 2 hours.
Q. Are your travel costs included ? A .Yes for travel within a 40 mile radius. For travel further afield we will ask for a contribution towards petrol.
Q. How far will you travel ? A. We are happy to travel anywhere in the world for your event. However we may have to charge a travel expense for oversees bookings.
Q. Can we book the Quartet for a classical recital ? A. Yes, as experienced chamber musicians we are equally at home with more formal recitals.
Q. Can we change the start and finish timings ? A. Yes, however, once we've agreed the times it could be difficult to change as some players may have other commitments. We will of course always do our best to accommodate you.
Q. How do we make a booking ? A. The client and the Quartet agree on the duration, start and finish times, fee etc . The client will pay a 25% non-refundable deposit and the remainder a week before the performance.
Q. Cancellation Terms. A. If you find that you have to cancel, the following terms will apply:- 1. 2 calendar months* and longer. Loss of deposit only. 2. Less than 2 calendar months*. Half of the full fee (less the deposit) will be payable. 3. Less than 1 calendar month*. The full fee (less the deposit) shall be payable.
