Simply the Best!!

We can’t thank the amazing people at AREV enough for everything they did to help us prepare for our wedding.

They made the whole process go so smoothly from planning to the wedding day and were a huge part of our unforgettable day. Working with Katya to plan our music selections was a pleasure and gave us one less thing to stress about.

The musicians, Lydia, Mila, and Bryan all played so beautifully and brought the perfect mix of fun and class to our wedding day.

We sincerely believe that we got more than we could have hoped for working with AREV and wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone else looking for the best live music to elevate any special occasion.

Wonderful addition to our wedding!

Katya responded right away when I reached out and it was a last minute addition! Our guests for our wedding raved about the singing and how it made the ceremony so peaceful! I highly recommend this vender if you’re looking for a string quartet! They let me choose all the songs from a large list. This made our wedding day so special.

They are based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and can often be heard broadcasting live on WQED, Pittsburgh’s classical music station. The talents and mission of the Kassia Ensemble have also been in demand in the recording studio. They are featured on the album, “Songs of Lake Volta” with composer and pianist Joseph Sheehan, who is an assistant professor at Duquesne University Mary Pappert School of Music.

Born and raised in Armenia, Ms. Janpolayan began playing cello at the age of 11. She recalls hearing a student perform the Haydn Cello Concerto, and that was the moment she realized she was destined to become a cellist. Her dedication to the cello paved the way for her studies at the Yerevan State Conservatory in Armenia. Here, Ms. Janpoladyan studied with renowned soloists, Medea Abramian and Zareh Sargissyan. Following her studies in Armenia, she was accepted into the performance program at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music under the tutelage of celebrated cello soloist, Yehuda Hanani. At the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory, Ms Janpoladyan earned a Master of Music in Cello Performance and will earn a Doctorate in Musical Arts upon the completion of her dissertation.
