When you are planning a corporate event, you want your guests to have the time of their lives so that they will remember your brand and/or product and will choose you over other competitors when faced with that decision. Corporate events can vary widely, but putting on live music is always a winner. There are plenty of options to choose from depending on the mood you are trying to portray at your event and here are some of our top suggestions for perfect corporate entertainment…

If you are hosting a sit down dinner, awards ceremony or an event where you want soft background music while guests mingle among themselves, we have a number of suggestions for entertainment that will not only sound atmospheric but add class to any event too:

String Quartets

Hiring a string quartet for your corporate event entertainment will really set the mood for a classy occasion. Consisting of two violins, a viola and a cello, a string quartet can generally play a wide variety of music ranging from classical compositions through to covers of more modern songs. If you want your corporate event to scream sophistication, a string quartet should be on your list of priorities. There are also a number of options when it comes to booking a string quartet; from all-girl ensembles to mixed groups.

If you are working to a budget and are looking for a more affordable option for classy corporate entertainment or your event is smaller and you want to choose something a little more low key, why not hire an instrumentalist. Although not always cheaper than hiring a string quartet, there are many instrumentalists available to hire with their own instrument of choosing. From cellists, classical guitarists and pianists to harpists or saxophonists, there is plenty to choose from in this area of entertainment.

Big Bands and Orchestras

If you are hosting a massive event with hundreds of guests and you want to put on entertainment with impact, why not hire a big band or orchestra. Your guests will enjoy watching an orchestra perform and give them something to talk about once the show is over. A big band or orchestra will cost substantially more than our previous suggestions, and will require much more space for their performance. Choose this form of entertainment for a breathtaking experience.


Opera Singers

If you like the idea of an elegant performance, why not hire an opera singer that will be sure to wow your guests with their powerful display. Opera singers can cater for events of any size, and are perfect if you have a lot of guests attending. This form of entertainment is more suited to longer events where guests can chat among themselves before and after the performance, but one thing is for sure; they aren’t going to forget about it!
