Frequently Asked Questions
1) Iíve never booked musicians before. How do I go about it?
After discussing the details of your event with A Triem, we will provide you with a contract to sign and return along with a $75 deposit.

2) How much does it cost?
For corporate and social events, please contact us for a price quote.

Our basic wedding ceremony package is $450, which includes prelude music (20 min), processional, ceremony, recessional, and postlude music. Included is an in-person consultation with the full trio for you to personalize your music and work out details. Each additional hour of music is $150. Price may be more if extra rehearsals are required or for travel outside of King County/Everett/Tacoma metro areas. (See #15 for travel charges.)

3) When do I pay?
A nonrefundable deposit is due when you sign the contract. The remainder is due on the event date before the event.

4) What if I donít know what music I want?
We can suggest music to fit the mood you want to create. We also offer a complimentary demo CD and consultation to help you decide on music.

5) When will you arrive?
We will arrive 10-30 minutes before we begin performing, depending on if there are last minute details to work out. We set up in less than 5 minutes.

6) What do I need to provide for you on the day of the event?
Three armless chairs, and a place in the room where we won't get bumped into. If the event is outdoors, we will need a cover to shield us and our instruments from direct sun, wind and rain.

7) What if on the day of the event I want you to stay for longer?
We are often able to extend our performance time if we don't have another event immediately following. If you would like us to stay, just ask.

8) What happens if one of the musicians gets sick?
The musician will provide a qualified substitute to take her place.

9) May I request a special song or piece?
ATriem will arrange one special song for you at no additional cost ($100 value). You will need to provide us with a piano score or trio arrangement of the music one month before your event. Additional pieces can be arranged for $100 each. Please be aware that not all music will translate well to our combination of instruments. If you're unsure about a certain song or piece, just ask!

10) I have someone singing at my event. Can you accompany him/her?
We can. We will need a score of the music. We do charge if extra rehearsal time required. Please ask us about your specific song.

11) Where are consultation held?
Consultations are done in person with the full trio in Redmond on Tuesday mornings, or other times as needed. You will need to have a clear wedding program to take full advantage of your consultation. You are welcome to bring a friend or family member for a second opinon. If you are unable to make an in-person consultation, it may be done by phone with one of our musicians.

12) What will you wear?
We will wear concert black unless you specify otherwise.

13) What equipment do you need?
We bring all our own equipment. All you will need to provide are three armless chairs and shelter from direct sun and/ or rain if we are outdoors.

14) For an outdoor event, what if it rains?
We will perform as long as our instruments and music do not get wet. Your guests may prefer to move inside, though.

15) What if we change the date or time of the event?
Provided we are available on the new date, we will amend the contract. If we are not available, we will retain the deposit and can refer you to other musicians if you choose.
