Here are some things you should know about hiring musicians for an outdoor event:

  • “72 and sunny”: plan for a day when it will be above 60 degrees Fahrenheit and the sun shining.  The wood of the instruments is very delicate and cannot handle chilly or wet weather

 

  • have a rain plain: if it might rain–or it might not, you don’t know–don’t panic.  The quartet can still play under a roof, such as a tent or  pavilion, so long as the music and the instruments don’t get wet.

 

  • throw some shade: again, because of the delicate wood, the instruments cannot handle direct sunlight, so find a gazebo, large tree, tent, etc. in the ceremony location for the quartet to play under.  Make sure it is close enough that everyone can still hear!
