Professional amplification is included with event services if needed. This can be either a small (but powerful) guitar/vocal amplifier or a full PA system with two 15" speakers on stands. Extra microphones can be attatched to the system for announcements and music can be played during any breaks. Playing acoustically is only recommended for quiet environments as the classical guitar is a quiet instrument.
Musical requests are accepted in advance of the event, allowing time to prepare. This is not limited to classical music, and can include popular tunes and singing.
