Last week, Nicole talked to some of our top performing soloists to find out what you needed to know about hiring a soloist for an event. One of the most popular events for which people hire a soloist is a wedding ceremony. Having a touch of live music at your ceremony can make the whole event sing (pun intended). So, we thought we'd share what Nicole learned here as well.
Envision your Event
Classical flute soloist, Michelle Brick (Cranford, New Jersey) advises how you should start your search: “When looking to hire a soloist, you should imagine the type of music and setting they are trying to portray and seek out the best instrument or voice that sets that tone. Once you narrow down the type of music you are looking for it is important to hire someone with great experience and knowledge with that particular kind of music. For example, when hiring a soloist for a wedding, you should find out if the soloist is familiar with the type of ceremony you are having, get a feel for their general expertise and personality, and inquire as to what selection of music they offer. When planning any event, you should feel comfortable that the soloist you choose will be able to capture the mood you want.”
