"Thank you for adding the personal touch of live music to our special day. It was a touch that was important to us." 
(May 2014 bride)

"The sound and themed music for St. Patrick's Day was wonderful!" (March, 2014 corporate event)

"These two were here early to make sure everything was set up right and sounding good. Most the time our residents cannot hear the musician unless there right next to them, this couple had the sound of music traveling all throughout the dining room. We had a 3-day cruise theme party going to Germany, France then Italy (they were our Italy night entertainment) and after all was said and done they all said they love the Italy night the best because of the music I had hired!! Needless to say, they WILL be hired back here again! Thank you Bert and Dorothy for an amazing memorable night!!" 
(February, 2014 retirement home event  - Italian Entertainment)

"Dorothy Barth provided beautiful music for our wedding ceremony. She arrived early to set up and was very helpful in the music selection before the day of the wedding. She also provided us with a wedding page that outlined what order and what songs would be played. Everyone complimented on how wonderful the music was for the ceremony" (September 2013 bride)

"WOW!! What a great couple and even better musicians!  I'm so happy I found Bert and Dorothy. They are amazing people. Their music was just perfect for our event. Everyone loved and enjoyed every song they played." (September, 2013 public event)

"Great music, friendly, professional, easy to work with! Would recommend and use again!" (October 2013 bride)

"You were awesome. We are so glad we included you in our ceremony! Everyone loved the intimate setting, and your music just completed the whole package" (July 2013 bride)  

"We couldn't be happier with Dorothy. Extremely talented, punctual and went out of her way to make us happy. Quick reply to any emails and she located sheet music to an uncommon wedding song. When there was a mix up in the timing of the bridal party starting, Dorothy noticed this and continued /replayed the song without a pause. Our guests would have never known that the party missed their cue. Amazing! Highly recommended!" (June 2013 groom)

Amazing Good Find!   I hadn't intended on having ceremony musicians at my wedding, but I am so glad I did! Flutes of Fancy's Bert and Dorothy were wonderful! We had a St. Patrick's Day wedding and they played for us classical wedding songs as well as Celtic/Irish traditional music. Prior to the wedding, they created an online music playlist so we could hear how they would sound and how the music would flow, etc. My husband loved it so much he had it on repeat all night! They were lovely people and even came to our wedding in costume! Loved them! (March, 2013 bride)

"Dorothy and her husband Bert were a pleasure to work with and they made our party a truly special event!" 
(December 2012 holiday party).

My wife Nancy and I recently hired Flutes of Fancy to play accompaniment at our wedding ceremony in La Jolla. Their lovely playing add such an air of beauty and grace to the entire proceedings! Bert and Dorothy are such consummate professionals that I would not hesitate for a moment to recommend them or use them again for some other reason. Thank you Bert and Dorothy!

"Flutes of fancy duo Dorothy and Bert Barth warmed our hearts and souls during our 2008 Chapel program because of the diversity of their musical selections and the sheer number of pieces they performed. It was a concert! We have even listened to music in the “lounge of the Titanic” performed by this talented and dedicated musical team... Invite them to your next event. You won’t be disappointed..." (Myrna Hayes, Arc Ecology)

"I have had the pleasure of booking Flutes of Fancy for a variety of programs from art openings to holiday parties to background music for teas to the feature artists for formal music and history programs. They have been exceptional in every venue. They make every effort to provide a unique program specifically suited to the particular event I have requested their services for. They have always delivered and their music is divine! For being classically oriented, they are eager to be creative, innovative. Their music has a joyfulness that my listeners love."
