Allegro Arts is a live music agency which provides live music for corporate events large and small. We are an experienced supplier to many major UK companies, but we retain our working preference for personal and detailed work with every client. We support you in promoting your business through our music service, helping to make yours an impressive and memorable event.
Who will look after my enquiry?
A knowledgable, experienced music manager with personal knowledge of the musicians, their music, and the events business.
How do you select the musicians?
We work with musicians whose music, approach and reliability we admire. We have known some of our musicians for fifteen years, but in the case of every musician joining us we look for beautiful playing, the right attitude to the profession, reliability, humour and wow factor.
What type of music could we choose from?
It’s a long list! Classical (solo or group), jazz, bands, singing, music from other cultures, brass and military music (such as fanfares), background or performance. Fix a meeting and we’ll go through it with you.
What do you offer in the way of arrangements?
Initial consultation and constant liaison during the pre-event period; effective communication with all parties; clear, reliable and effective administration; site visits where possible; and a sensible and clear contract.
Can you help us at short notice?
Can you ensure we have music even if the musician is struck down with illness?
Yes, in most circumstances.
Can we have music outdoors?
Yes. We will advise you how best to arrange this.
Why Classical music?
Anyone who has been particularly impressed by the ambiance of a corporate event will tell you that it was not the glass of champagne upon arrival which provided the wow factor, but the sound of gentle live music floating through the air. Many loyal clients turn repeatedly to Allegro Arts to provide them with accomplished Classical musicians who bestow any event with the style and relaxed ambience for which classical music is renowned.
Music that goes with a swing
Live Jazz (a word which covers so much varied music!) gets guests quickly into the swing of the occasion. Allegro Arts has been providing jazz groups to corporate functions for some years now, priding ourselves on the breadth of choice on offer. Whatever style of music your event demands – cool jazz, popular jazz or traditional swing – Allegro Arts represents some wonderful, talented jazz musicians.
What does it cost?
The musicians’ fee is worked out on the length of time the musicians are booked for and their fee (based on rates recommended by the Incorporated Society of Musicians or the accepted industry rate). In addition some travel and administration may be added. You will find fees vary considerably from musician to musician based on experience, but we will never offer you a cut price on the grounds of inferior standard. We don’t use students, even though some are extremely good, simply because they lack experience of major events. We have a responsibility to our clients and to our musicians, and are rather moral people!
Detailed collaboration/consultation with our music manager may, by prior agreement with you, be arranged at an hourly rate.
