Event and Venue Recommendations

Questions to Consider:

  • What is your budget?
  • What type of atmosphere do you want to create?
  • Is the location/venue suitable for musicians?
  • Does your venue require sound reinforcement?
  • If you would like to include a piano, is there one in the venue? When was it last tuned?

Lamont student musicians perform in a wide variety of styles, on many different instruments (including voice), and in an array of ensembles. To learn more about our musicians and ensembles for hire, please visit our Performer Press Kits to view biographies, sound clips, photos, and more.
