In the performing arts, the show must always go on – but for orchestras, good insurance isn’t just about processing a claim, it’s about thinking laterally to solve challenges and problems fast. By supporting you with specialist cover and sound risk management advice La Playa can help you do a great job.
Orchestras and ensembles present very specific risk exposures – and now your digital and online risks can expose you globally. At La Playa, we’re passionate about the arts and creative industries – many of us are practitioners and active consumers; in fact, La Playa founded the first ever corporate art collective.
So why do orchestras need specialist insurance?
1. Cover: orchestras need a diverse range of cover, including “non-standard” property insurance (computers, sheet music, audio visual equipment, props, stock and musical instruments); Business Interruption (to protect income streams during physical and technological disruptions such as fire, flood, power & telecommunications failure, prevention of access to a venue, failure of a safety curtain, sound & lighting); liabilities for audiences, freelancers, volunteers, merchandise and venues; money (box office income, per diems, programme/merchandise cash); and all the protection needed for touring activities. They may also need to consider Cancellation Insurance (especially if they promote their own concerts); Trustee Liability protection for their board; and Professional Liabilities to defend against allegations of libel, slander, infringement of copyright, breach of confidentiality – particularly as their websites expose them to global legislation of which they can have limited knowledge.
2. Definitions/MO: as well as the range of cover needed by an orchestra, there are also key differences in the “definitions” in the contracts: for example, “employees” needs to include volunteers, freelancers, tour managers; and a policy that defines “working hours” as 9-5pm isn’t going to work.
