Hiring the Most In-Demand, Best Christmas Carolers & Holiday Singers in New York City
Putting together a Christmas party, holiday office event, brand activation, or any kind of happening during the holiday season is challenging enough without your vendors making things difficult.
We know this personally: our founders had a December wedding, and they learned then that dealing with vendors during the most hectic time of the year can be a full-time job!
So, when we formed New York Holiday Singers, Inc., our goal was to take the hassle out of the holidays.
We did this by streamlining the process. Things like no-nonsense, standardized per-Singer per-hour pricing (an industry first), coding our very own, one-of-a-kind custom piece of software to manage bookings & events that even allows our clients to edit their own setlists if they want (another industry first), flexible attire options from "festive casual" up to Luxe — all with our signature hand-knit red scarves (yep, another industry first!), and the most flexible and fun songbook in the business all add up to the most flexible holiday vocal entertainment around.
It's why we call it Caroling a la Carte™, and we'd like to show you how easy it is to work with us!
Reserve Your Rate
Start by checking our easy online quote tool to make sure we've got enough Singers 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.)
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!
Plan Your Event
We activate your event in Now Reserving & Event Central, our custom online event management systems, and you'll get an email with a link you can click to view your event. You and a member of our staff may have a brief email conversation to get a sense of your event's requirements, guests, space, timing, and mood so they can decide what songs the Singers 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!
Enjoy the Show!
Our Singers 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 Singers "gig leader." Promptly at the start of your scheduled time, the Singers 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!
