Just takes a few clicks and it’s always reliable. We used Encore every month for the past 2 years and it has been amazing.
The orchestra were a huge hit on Friday, so thanks again for your help last minute on this! Throughly impressive.
The band were great and really professional throughout the booking process and on the day.

Frequently asked questions

Can any classical ensemble play my favourite song?

Professional classical ensembles will often take requests, but you will need to give them plenty of notice. Please also keep in mind that classical ensembles may ask for an small additional fee to prepare songs that aren't already on their song list. You can view the classical ensemble's song list on their Encore profile.

How much time do classical ensembles take to set up?

Your classical ensemble will usually arrive about an hour or so before their performance begins to set up and get settled before they start playing. To avoid any delays, make sure the performance space is ready for the classical ensemble prior to their arrival.

My venue has asked for the performer’s PLI & PAT inspection certificates. What are these?

PLI stands for Public Liability Insurance. This insurance covers damage to another person or their property (it is also known as third party insurance). As many of our classical ensembles are members of the Musician's Union, they are already covered by PLI up to £10 million. PAT stands for portable appliance testing. Most of our classical ensembles will already have a PAT inspection certificate for their musical equipment/PA system, which they can provide to your venue if they need it.
