The Live Department covers all live performances including local orchestras, operas, sporting events, weddings, corporate events and more.

An organization with multiple events is usually covered under a Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA). These include: orchestras, symphonies, operas, ballets, theater productions, etc. All other (one-time) events are covered under casual contracts including: weddings, funerals, political rallies, parties, etc.
