Additional Booked Time
ADDITIONAL BOOKED TIME $100.00 minimum fee (& parking)
This option is not a stand-alone package. Clients who have already booked their Alys Howe, and would now like to add on additional time (for their Reception, a Rehearsal, during their Photographs, etc) can fill out the Additional Booked Time contract attachment, to add on to their existing booking. These special, discounted rates apply only to bookings of additional time and are not available for new bookings.
All terms set forth in the original contract, will apply to the Additional Booked Time contract attachment. This attachment simply allows for events beginning just before, or just after, the existing booking.
If additional time is needed for an event that will take place on a different date, at a different location, or at a significantly different time than the original event, clients should complete the Reception Only Contract or the Event Contract, instead of filling out the Additional Booked Time contract attachment.

Clients may request that the harpist will (or will not) play certain categories of music, such as “classical” or “popular”, but the harpist will determine the list of repertoire for events requiring background music entertainment.
Clients will be charged for the amount of time they are booking, regardless of how much or little music they require during that time.
AVAILABLE AT ADDITIONAL COST (not included, unless already booked in previous contract)
Amplification is recommended when there will be more than 50 guests at an outdoor location, or more than 80 guests at an indoor location. The harpist can provide a modest amplification system, for the additional cost of $50.00
Special musical requests may or may not be possible, depending on time constraints, and whether the music is suitable for harp. Additional charges will apply. Consult the harpist for further details.
Additional performers may be available to perform acoustically, with acoustic harp only, as an addition to your chosen wedding package. Standard combinations include harp and flute, harp and violin, harp and vocals, harp and recorder, or harp and cello.

Additional charges will apply, at the rate of $200.00 minimum additional fee for up to 1 hour, and $100.00 for each hour (or portion) following. Note that most of Alys Howe’s standard repertoire may be performed in combination with other instruments, but there are some exceptions; remember that music titles marked with an asterisk* are not available on Lever Harp.
