About Sarah Richmond
Music to Make Your Day - Classical Singer for any event
I am a classically trained singer that can offer 'Music to Make Your Day'. Highly competitive fee starts at £150 includes consultation to discuss repertoire, rehearsal, and the performance on the day for me as a soloist. My favoured accompaniment for a luxury event is string quartet. Lose the hassle of organising multiple musicians: I can sing with the church organist, or can arrange a different organist/pianist from the many I have performed with before. At hotel and registry office weddings, I regularly perform using backing tracks. I have worked with many top musicians and can arrange other singers for duets or trios, harpists, flautists, and string quartets to perform with. The starting price for me as a soloist with either piano or organ is £250. Forget the stress of finding music: I have a large list of performed repertoire and can offer advise on all styles of music to suit you. When you enquire I can send you a template of order of service and possible suitable pieces of music relevant to your day, if you would like guidance. Don't lose out on hearing it: lots of brides want singing during the signing of the register when there is a lull in the service, but sometimes don't get to hear it themselves. The rehearsal is open for you to attend, so you can have a chat and enjoy the music. Depending on the accompanist and music choice, the rehearsal may be early on the big day itself. If this is the case, you can hear selections of me singing on my website. No hidden expenses: unlike other musicians, my only possible extra fee is travel, if travel expenses are required you will be told at the time of enquiry and quoted the exact fee once distance is calculated. Suggested opportunities for a soloist/ensemble: as congregation gather procession (the bride's entrance) psalm between readings after a reading after the vows offertory hymn during or after communion signing the register/schedule recession (the exit) during photographs before the dinner If for whatever reason I can no longer perform at your event, you will be informed immediately and given the option of a full refund, or I can arrange for another performer from a range of trusted colleagues. When you enquire about music at your event, I like to know: the date and time, the venue, the type of service if it's a wedding, and any ideas you've had about music, so that I can quickly help with your day.
