The Marion Chamber Trio is an extraordinary musical value, when compared with other musical options for your special event.
For your wedding within 10 miles of the Cedar Rapids city limits, the MCT will provide all the music for your wedding for a fixed fee.
For a slight additional charge, Carolyn will also provide organ or piano accompaniment (you provide the organ/piano, of course).
If your wedding is outside the Cedar Rapids area, we charge the standard fee plus a fee for travel expenses, to cover the additional time and expense of travel.
Fees for other events are negotiated based on the amount of playing time and location.
Payment is expected prior to the day of your event. A non-refundable deposit is due with the signed contract to secure your date. Any remaining balance is due the week prior to the event.
For further information, fee schedule, or booking inquiries, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Terri may also be contacted by telephone at 319.377.2615.
The Marion Chamber Trio cannot perform in a choir loft or in a building that has more than 4 steps into the playing area unless there is an elevator, as it is nearly impossible to get the harp into those types of locations.
The space must be large enough to accommodate all three instruments, three chairs, and three music stands.
If lighting is poor, there should be electrical outlets near the music area for stand lights.
The Marion Chamber Trio does not typically accompany vocalists or play with other instrumentalists, however, this may be negotiated on a case-by-case basis.
