Planning Event Music
  • What type of ambiance do I want for my guests and myself on this day?

  • What style(s) of music would create that perfect setting?

  • What are my options?

    • Live Music:

      • I would want someone who can provide me with knowledge, resources, skill and personality that would ease my mind and lift my spirits.

      • What instrument(s) would capture both quality and class in this setting?

      • The musician(s) would need to have the skill to adapt to the needs of the environment and start and stop as needed for the other activities taking place, such as a speech or other artistic presentation.

    • Pre-Recorded Music:

      • I would need to have the time to find the music appropriate for the unexpected time frame adjustments.

      • There would need to be someone available to control the starting and stopping of music during the event.

      • Will the stopping of music in a place where it doesn't sound complete interupt the flow of mood?

  • When should I contact a musician? - As soon as possible, 6 months is ideal.

  • When would I meet with the musician? - About 3 months prior to the event is good.

  • What if I have specific music I want to have played? - Let the artist know of your wishes as soon as possible so he or she can get and learn the music.

  • What if I have a friend I want to have sing during the event, could the musician provide accompaniment? - Often this is fine for both vocalists and instrumentalists. A rehearsal time would need to be determined, even if it is the day of the event. However, rehearsing ahead of time will ensure the best quality of music.

  • How much would something like this cost me? - There are always several variables, like every other little detail you have to schedule for your event. Most harpists in the Kansas City area seem to have comparable rates. Don't hesitate to ask about their training, experience, and even their instrument. Some play a large harp, others play a small one. This can make a difference in the the ambiance, cost, and sound quality. So you will need to decide what is going to satisfy your needs and your guests at this special event.
