FAQ

How long In advance do I need to book Cloud Gate String Quartet?

We recommend booking at least 6 months in advance. If your event date is closer than that don’t hesitate to inquire anyway.

What is the booking process?
First, please contact us and let us know your event details. If we’re available for your date, we’ll respond with a quote and request additional details. Once the details are confirmed, we’ll send over a contract. The contract needs to be sent back along with a 20% deposit within 7 days.

I don’t know much about classical music, what do you usually play?
We will be happy to share a set list with you for you to listen to in advance.

Can you guys play XYZ?
We can play nearly anything with enough preparation time! Let us know what you want to hear, and we’ll give you a quote for the arrangement fee. Keep in mind we need to write the music for all instruments and rehearse it, hence the fee.

What time will you arrive at our event?
We’ll be there 30 minutes before the contracted start time to tune and take care of set up.

What do you need in terms of set up?
Please provide at least one armless chair for our cellist. The others can perform standing or sitting. Also consider placing the quartet in a part of the room where there is enough lighting.
