Weddings and Events Rate
We recommend booking the string trio six months in advance.
For 2019, Solaris String Trio charges $390 for every hour the trio is needed with a $40 non-refundable booking fee. Generally, the trio will be needed for two hours for the wedding, which includes the pre-ceremony music, the ceremony, and the transition to photos/cocktails while guests are exiting. For receptions and other events, you are able to hire the trio for as long as you'd like. The trio will take a ten minute break between every hour. We do offer quick event packages, so please contact us for more details. Please enquire about our location rates, which applies to any venue changes during the event booking.
Solaris Strings requires a retainer of one third of the event quote. The remainder of the balance will be collected at the event. Delays or additional time required at the event will be applied accordingly before the end of the event. Cancellations and postponements must be done a month in advance, at which if it is on the party, the retainer fee will not be refunded. Availability is not guaranteed in the event of postponement or cancellation. To ensure that the date of your event is available, please contact us in advance!
If there is a song that you would like arranged, please contact us. Generally, depending on the piece, it is 75$ per song under 3:00 min. For every extra minute afterwards, there will be an additional 5$ per minute after that. Most of the arrangements will be for a string trio, but if you would like a string quartet arrangement, it will be an additional 25$ for the extra instrument part.
