Once you’ve found a classical musician you like, click the 'Add To Basket' button and follow the steps to enter some basic timing information and select any customisation options. Once you’ve added the artist to your basket you can review and add more artists to your basket or else you can submit an enquiry for the one musician to Alive Network.

Once your enquiry has been submitted an Alive Network coordinator will get in touch with you directly to discuss your event further and provide a confirmed quote from the artist.

How to hire a classical musician – making a booking

Once you’ve settled on the musicians that you would like to book, simply let your Alive Network coordinator know that you’d like to confirm the booking and they’ll secure the booking with the artist. They will issue you and the artist with legally binding booking contracts which ensure all the details of your booking are correct, everyone understands what they’ve agreed to, and that the artist can’t pull out of the booking or mess you around. You will need to pay a booking deposit to Alive Network upon confirmation (roughly 25% of the total fee) and the remaining balance is usually payable directly to the artist on the night of the event. Your deposit can be paid by card, bank transfer or cheque.

If you need to discuss any aspect of your booking, or if you need to make any changes, your dedicated Alive Network coordinator will be on hand to support you as much as you need.

You will be put in touch with the musicians 3-4 weeks before your event to run over the arrangements, fine tune the details and make any changes necessary.
