These are some of the ensembles available to you with the Brass String Chamber Ensemble (www.theBSCE.com).

We've been in business since 1990 and have performed for over 2000 weddings and special events.

Our comprehensive library contains over 1000 pieces of music and we are always adding new pieces - including arrangements that we write for our clients.

A comprehensive library 18 years of experience = beautiful wedding music that's also worry-free.

If you like traditional music we have wonderful arrangements of Canon, Trumpet Voluntary, Jesu Joy, Hornpipe, Wedding March, Rondeau, etc. We have even arranged the music used in a traditional Catholic Mass which means we can either play along with your organist or we can cover the organist's part if you prefer not to use an organist.

If you like non-traditional music we have a diverse collection of non-traditional choices for you to consider - both classical and contemporary.

Our string quartet cocktail and dinner music library is quite versatile - we play Gershwin, Porter, Sinatra, Beatles, Zeppelin, Verve, etc. We even have a sound and light system if your room is very large and/or dark.

We have played with: Moody Blues, Brian Wilson, ELO, Page and Plant (Led Zeppelin), Luciano Pavarotti, Gladys Knight, Anne Murray, Clay Aiken, Michael W Smith, Dennis DeYoung...

You may recognize a few of our clients: Harpo Studios, United Airlines, Ralph Lauren, Mario Tricoci, WCKG...

We had a trumpeter and violinist from BSCE accompany our church pianist and cantor. They did a beautiful job and we were happy that we chose them to enhance the music at our ceremony. It was a full Catholic mass and they played all of the musical pieces throughout.

The Brass String Chamber Ensemble did an amazing job at our ceremony. Being a musician myself, it was very important to me to have quality musicians for our ceremony. We hired a trumpet, 2 violins and a cello. Paul helped us through every step of the way, from choosing which instruments, working with our vocalist, and deciding on our music. He even arranged "All You Need is Love" for us so that we could have it after the ceremony ended. I would highly recommend the BSCE for any bride looking for musicians.

We contracted for a string quartet with 2 trumpets and they were amazing! Our wedding guests could not stop telling us how wonderful the music was. We had some definite ideas on what music we wanted performed at certain times during the ceremony and Paul was great to work with throughout. They were professional, easy to work with, flexible and the sound was rich and beautiful. You could definitely count on this group to give your guests a quality musical experience during the ceremony - Bravo!!

So this review is going to have to be based mostly on guest's response as I was in the basement of the church for the majority of the time they played... We hired the brass quintet (Stonegate Brass) through the BSCE. Paul was my contact and was a pleasure to deal with.

As soon as I saw how big our church was (St. Ben's on the northside), I knew that a brass quintet would sound great. We were married right before Christmas, so we had many options on music. My husband, before I hired the musicians, really didn't have a preference as far as strings or brass went and quite frankly didn't want to spend the money. One of the first things he said to me after the wedding was, "that brass quintet was worth every penny." We also had several people during the reception comment on how wonderful they were.

It was my wedding day and I said I wanted to have a grand entrance... Nothing like a brass quintet for a grand entrance!!!

The string quartet was had at our wedding was perfect! Making the arrangements were so easy- Kris was so easy to contact via both phone and email. They even surprised us with a special arrangement of 311's "Amber" during our preservice music- my husband is a big 311 fan! We were very pleased with the music they provided during our ceremony. A very professional and personable group!
