planning an outside event

home     about us    weddings     contact us      faq     fees     contract

Stringed instruments are delicate, which limits where a string quartet can perform. Severe weather may limit our ability to perform outside. Instruments need to be kept dry and must not overheat. We cannot play where spray, or water will get on the instruments. (ie. sprinklers, rain, etc.)  Our instruments are also put together with a heat sensitive glue which tends to come apart when exposed to direct sunlight. Therefore total shade must be provided for any outside performances.

Arizona has a beautiful climate for outside events, but we can not control the weather. You may wish to make advanced arrangements with your hosting facility to move indoors should the weather turn nasty.

Although we are flexible and do our best under adverse conditions to meet your needs, Performances under the following conditions are at the discretion of the individual players.

      o  below 45 Deg. Fah. or above 105 Deg. Fah.

   Wind so strong:

      o  blows the stands over      o blows the bows off of the strings
      o  blows clipped music off stand   o stands are turning in wind during performance

      o  need to walk through or play in water,
   Hazardous conditions
