One of my most favorite memories from my wedding was walking down the aisle to Trumpet Voluntary, I had goosebumps from the BSCE playing Trumpet Voluntary. This was the same song my mother walked in to at my parents wedding and it literally took my breath away as my dad and I began our walk. The BSCE played this song (and all the others) with exceptional finesse! I can't remember a time in my life when I felt more like a princess than in that moment. To say they added a great sound to the songs for my ceremony would be an understatement, they completed my ceremony! The BSCE added a level of class and elegance with their perfect sound to give my wedding ceremony the magical feel I was envisioning. The rich sound of their instruments filled the church and really put our ceremony over the top, I still get compliments about them! They will be my first call if ever the situation arises for musical talent! Kris and Paul were super easy to work with, once we picked our songs we emailed them over and it was so stress free! We recommend them to all our friends and family and hope to have an event that needs their talent again in the future! Thanks for making our day so perfect and memorable and for making this day everything we could have dreamed of and more!

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.
I also had them play during my cocktail hour. Just an amazing talented group of people. I highly recommend Kris & Paul Semanic - The Brass String Chamber Ensemble you will NOT be disappointed. I am so very grateful to them both. Wedding Date 9-15-18

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!
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
