Not everyone has a broad knowledge of classical music, so when you’ve booked traditionally classical musicians such as a String Quartet, Pianist or Harpist for your event, you might not know where to start with the setlist.
If you’ve got an idea of the ambience that you’d like to create, simply describe it to your musicians! As experienced performers who know their repertoire inside out, your musicians can create a setlist that perfectly sets the tone for your occasion. Professional musicians are accustomed to reading the room as they go, tailoring the music choices according to how guests are responding or the mood that the occasion calls for.
Remember that classical instruments aren’t restricted to classical music. Arrangements of modern songs and different musical genres are an exciting change for guests - think Latin and Jazz for string quartet…!
Of course, if you like to have a say in the setlist then you can easily explore an artists repertoire with a quick search online to hear the piece, and broaden your classical knowledge whilst you’re at it!!
