Excellent Service

Trinity Laban's External Engagements provide a reliable and professional service for anyone looking to enhance an event with live music. Whatever the occasion, and whatever music you require, we will endeavour to help with your request.

Jazz Ensemble 479x375

Fantastic Musicians

The conservatoire trains musicians to the highest standard, and we demand excellence from our performers, both in terms of their playing and their approach to an engagement. Our groups are experienced, well-presented and reliable, with recommendations from our acclaimed faculty members. We work with both keen students and accomplished alumni, meaning that availability of commonly-requested groups is rarely an issue, even during our term time and busy periods.

Wide Variety of Options

We regularly provide a wide range of classical and jazz ensembles for background music, plus concerto and recital performers, and vocal soloists for choral concerts. Please see below a list of types of ensembles we have arranged for events before and our rates. If interested simply call or email us using the details below to discuss your requirements. 

Booking Fees

Prices for concerto and vocal soloists on request.

These prices (correct from January 2020) are for a background music engagement of anything up to three hours’ duration, including breaks, or for an hour-long concert, and are inclusive of administration fees and VAT.

Expenses will be added for travel outside Central London (zone 1-5) and for engagements finishing later than 11pm, or lasting longer than three hours.

Different groups may also charge extra for arrangements of specific pieces outside the group’s repertoire, or for consultation meetings, though they should always be contactable by phone or email.

A 50% cancellation fee will be charged in the event of the engagement being cancelled by the client with less than two weeks’ notice.



Payment is via invoice, which will normally be payable prior to the event, and can be made either by BACS electronic transfer, or via Trinity Laban’s online payment system.
