"...When my future husband and I decided to get married, we agreed on only one thing in our wedding
planning! We decided to hire a string quartet who would play the Andante Cantabile by Tchaikovsky during
our vows. We heard that the ensembles directed by Dimitri Vychko were superb, and we were grateful for the
recommendation. The music was incredibly beautiful, and the four musicians made our ceremony
spectacular. They helped us choose selections that we would enjoy based upon our preference for great
classics, and we

"...Fine Arts Ensemble’s piano trio performed a special arrangement of “Komm Susser Tod” for my father, and
then a series of movements from the Four Seasons by Vivaldi. They concluded the services with Bach’s “Bist
Du Bei Mir,” and Handel’s “I Know that My Redeemer Liveth.” The day ended with Mendelssohn’s “On Wings of
Song,” and it was so beautiful that my family and I will remember this for all of our lifetime. Thank you,

"...Hey! Joplin and Gershwin graced our monthly neighborhood coffee hour last night, and I could not resist
dropping you a thank you note, Dimitri! The “He Loves and She Loves” by Gershwin was the biggest hit of all –
Did you see how many couples reached over for their spouse’s hand when y’all played that? It was truly
marvelous. I suppose it was rude of me to ask you all to stay to visit with everyone afterward, but when you
accepted our invitation, you and the other musicians really brightened up the place! Thanks, again! Will you
come and play for us for the St. Valentines Day party?"

"...Love, Love, Loved them!!! Only way it would have been better would have been if I could have sat and
listened the entire time; needless- to-say, being the bride that just wasn't possible. Everyone loved them.
Thanks again Dimitri!"

Hello Dimitri and Irina,
just want to let you know that we were more than pleased with our music for our wedding ceremony; It was
beautiful. Both us and our parents received many compliments at the reception of how nice the music at the
church sounded. Now that everything is all said and done, I am extremely glad we chose the FAE who are
experienced and trustworthy. It made all the difference in the world and I had no worries on my wedding day
about the quality of service we would have from our musicians. Thank you both so much for being a part of our
special day. Have a wonderful new year!

The music provided by the Fine Arts Ensemble was beyond expectation. Everything was handled in a
professional manner and the quartet was exactly as described. I would highly recommend this group to anyone
who wished to hire a String Quartet. Their music is beautiful. We could not have been more pleased. Thank

The booking process was easy and thorough. The communication with Dimitri leading up to the event was
assuring and the performance was everything I hoped it would be. Very Satisfied with my choice and will
definitely recommend to friends.
