You can book these musicians for your event, be it a concert, wedding or corporate function. Whether you require

  – a singer for oratorio
  – or a classical or jazz ensemble for background music
we will endeavour to help you with your request.

The musical content and performance standards of external bookings are fully supervised by the professorial staff. We expect both first-class performances and high levels of professionalism from our students.
