Music by the BSCE sets the perfect tone for your wedding! They are incredible!
I cannot imagine an instrumental ensemble capable of creating a more beautiful musical experience than BSCE! The music they provided for my daughter's wedding was absolutely magnificent! Every piece was polished and perfected, yet played expressively from the heart. We chose to have a string quintet, 2 trumpets and a timpani. Each musician performed at virtuoso level; as a group, they achieved a superb blend. The BSCE has an endless repertoire, ranging from chamber classics and trumpet voluntaries for ceremony music to light jazz and pop for cocktail / dinner music. Each piece is arranged so creatively and played so professionally that is is an absolute joy to listen to them play! Plus, they will customize their music to fit your needs: in our case, they worked with us to add and subtract interludes and musical repeats to achieve the perfect timing for our processionals. They will also customize the combination of instruments to fit your preferences. They are consummate professionals who love what they do and perform with breath-taking artistry. In addition, founders Paul & Kris Semanic are among the most delightful people l have ever worked with. They will take a genuine interest in making your event musically perfect!Sent on 06/05/2019

Outstanding, amazing, talented group of people
Planing a wedding is very stressful. I am sure everyone can agree with me on this. However, working with Kris & Paul Semanic -The Brass String Chamber Ensemble was a pleasure. They are very special people that go above and beyond. They helped me immensely. Very detailed and professional. They have forms to help with all the details of the ceremony (readings, wedding party, etc.) They walked me through all of the music to select from. Not to mention there website. Everyone should check it out. The instrumental music is just beautiful to listen to. I cried when I heard them playing. I knew right then and there that this was what I was going to have playing at my wedding ceremony. When I walked down the isle and hear the ensemble playing it was just breath taking. ALL of my guests were in awwww. I had so many compliments. They said "they had never been to such beautiful wedding" and that "the music was unbelievable and it made my wedding complete." I have to agree with them.Sent on 01/16/2019

The Brass String Chamber Ensemble (BSCE) truly made our wedding special! My husband and I are professional musicians and wanted only the best as far as music for our wedding. The BSCE was hands down the best choice for providing professional musical performances for our wedding! They were easy to communicate with and they provided helpful suggestions to make the experience for both ourselves and our guests a memorable one! It's been 3 months since our wedding, and people are STILL talking about how wonderful the music was that BSCE provided!Sent on 09/24/2018
There are over 2,300 wedding vendors in Illinois, most of which I personally know and/or have heard of. I can honestly say that there are a number of vendors that don't provide the service that BSCE does to their clients. They have went above and beyond to service our clients and I am honored that BSCE is one of many fabulous partners!
I have had the priviledge of working with Paul Semanic at many weddings. He and his gifted colleagues bring a sense of professionalism and warmth to each occasion. They understand how to craft their music to the spirit of the bride and groom
