Finding the Perfect Orchestral Package for your Event!

Finding the Perfect Orchestra Package for your Event!

Orchestra packages are a luxurious addition to any event. They bring a sense of grandeur and elegance to any occasion and enhance the overall experience for your guests. An orchestra can perform classical music in its original form, providing a timeless and sophisticate

d ambiance. They can also play enhanced versions of popular covers, adding a modern twist to the performance and appealing to a wider audience. The number of musicians in an orchestra, the variety of instruments, and the skill of the performers all contributes to creating an incredible atmosphere that will be remembered by your guests for years to come.

What does the package include?

When choosing an orchestral package, you have multiple options to consider. Along with the orchestra, you can also include additional elements such as a live DJ, MC, and dancers, to enhance the overall experience. The DJ is typically accompanied by live instruments such as percussion, guitar, electric violin, strings, sax, and trumpet. If singers are included, they often perform with vocals-free backing tracks. This combination of live instruments and DJs creates a unique and exciting performance that will keep your guests entertained all night long.

The introductory example

With your DJ can be:

  • DJ Duo

  • Electric Drums

  • Violin

  • Sax and/or Trumpet

Make sure that high-quality sound and lighting systems accommodate the package you choose.

Several factors will affect the size of orchestral packages:

  1. The space and type your venue

  2. The budget

  4. The scale of the sound you want to create

  5. Any special requirements (Almost all big companies customize the event to your needs.)
