Will your musicians play with a singer or other musician not hired by Classical
Occasions, and if so, is rehearsal necessary?
We are happy to play with a singer who is not hired by Classical Occasions, and in certain cases we
will play with an outside instrumentalist. If we have exactly the same music as they do, rehearsal is often not needed
(usually the other musician provides us with the music they are using). Or, we can add a small amount of rehearsal
time to the booking, which would take place right before we start playing the prelude to the ceremony. Whether we rehearse
or not is really dependent upon the comfort level of your musician. If he or she is a professional, rehearsal may
be unnecessary. You should talk to your musician to gauge his or her comfort level.
