Travel: Please keep in mind that there may be additional travel charges if your event is more than 15 miles away from Toledo
Special Music Arrangements: Should you wish special music to be arranged for String Quartet (ie. a piece/song that is not currently in our repertoire), there will be a $20-50 arranging fee per piece, depending on the complexity of music and time it takes to arrange.
REQUIREMENTS: We cannot perform in direct sun, rain or high winds. We play extremely valuable instruments, and the elements can damage them irreversibly in a matter of minutes. It is understood that performers must be provided with shelter from rain and direct sunlight and that the temperature must be between 60- 90 degrees Fahrenheit. String quartet musicians require one armless chair per musician.
ATTIRE: Musicians will dress in all black concert attire.
CANCELLATION POLICY: In the unfortunate event that a booking must be cancelled by you, we will refund any payments including the deposit amount up to 90 days prior to the date of the engagement. After that point, the deposit amount is not refundable. If a contracted musician is ill or otherwise cannot play, we will employ a highly competent substitute from our preferred roster.
METHOD OF PAYMENT: We accept cash and checks (returned checks are subject to a $25 fee). Gratuity is always welcome and greatly appreciated.
