Working With the Choristers

Booking Christmas carolers, simplified.

We make booking the best holiday vocal entertainment in New York City as simple as it could be! We've been streamlining the process since our company's inception in 2009, so you can get back to planning the things that demand your attention and leave the entertainment to us.

Very easy to work with, well prepared, great, fun singers. Thank you!

How It Works

Start by checking our easy online quote tool to make sure we've got enough Choritsers available for your desired date and time. With the custom online system Greg, our Creative/Musical Director, programmed, our calendar's updated in almost real-time — so it's always got the most current information about our availability.

Then, if the quote sounds good to you, go ahead and complete the booking request process by filling out the form. We'll get an email about your booking request and all the details you filled out. (Keep in mind that if we've got to travel out of the city, there may be a small additional cost.)

Next: Contract & Deposit ⇒

Our Executive Director, Jen, will either send you your booking contract to review & fill out, or she'll reach out to confirm details before sending the contract. Our booking contract is thorough and detailed, and it spells out things like the details of your event, what we'll be doing there, the payment schedule, any requirements we have, cancellation policies, etc., as well as answering questions you may have.

You can return your signed contract to us either via email or through postal mail, along with your deposit via check or credit card. This locks in your date! We counter-sign and return the page to you either via email or mail. After that, the business side of things is done for a while, and you start dealing with Greg to work out your event's set list and creative!

Next: Plan Your Event ⇒

We activate your event in Now Reserving, our custom online event management system, and you'll get an email with a link you can click to view your event. You and our Musical Director, Greg, have a brief conversation so he can get a sense of your event's requirements, guests, space, and mood so he can decide what songs the Choristers will perform. We'll then put together the first version of your setlist, viewable on your event page.

And, if you'd like, you can edit the set list online, too, simply by dragging & dropping songs to add, remove, or reorder. Or, leave the set list to us — we can work either way!

Last: Enjoy the Show ⇒

Our Choristers show up at the designated call time (usually 20 minutes before the start of your event), dressed, composed, and ready to go. The remaining balance is due at this time, and gets handled discreetly between you and your event's Choristers "gig leader." Promptly at the start of your scheduled time, the Choristers take their position, blow their first starting pitch, and begin making beautiful music for your event and its guests!

They sing through your scheduled time, with only the briefest of pauses in between songs (and any hourly breaks that are scheduled). At the time's end, they exit, and head off (presumably to another event), and we then hope to see you the following year!

We need to thank you in so many ways… First up, for giving your time to our furry non-profit Rock & Rawhide. In bringing such a great vibe to our event at Petco Union Square, you really set the scene for all of the shoppers. People were in a great mood and not just rushing through their holiday last-minute shopping. They stopped to listen, sang as they walked by, kids danced and everyone smiled. You brought some incredible holiday spirit to a big store.

On a personal level, dealing with you guys was easy, seamless, professional and kind. Not only were the communications in booking the Choristers professional, but everyone turned up early, looking amazing, ready to go. And you all sang your pretty butts off for the entire allotted time. Everyone was great to deal with, no divas here!

Then… the talent. WOW. You sounded amazing. The harmonies and arrangements were fantastic. We wished we were having a Christmas party so we could book you guys again!!! Next year we plan to. It'll be a date every December.
