Dear friends, Summit Records has agreed to produce the WTE’s debut album – will you please help us over the finish line? Thank you!
The Washington Trombone Ensemble’s debut album is “in the can” and set to be released in late March by Summit Records! This CD introduces no less than six world premiere recordings, including the title track “The Road Not Taken”, by James Stephenson, written specifically for National Symphony bass trombonist Matt Guilford and the ensemble. In addition, we have the three “B’s” (Bach, Brahms and Bolter) as well as bass vocalist Jonathan Deutsch singing Wagner the way it was truly meant to be – with an all-trombone orchestra!
In the meantime, we need your help to make this CD a success. All the work has already been done, and now your support will help defray the cost of the first printing. And although we can practically hear you protesting that virtue is its own reward, we still offer wonderful gifts to our benefactors! Backers can receive free CDs, reproductions of the beautiful cover art, suitable for framing, and many items signed by the artists. Please see our suggested giving levels for specific rewards, and know that however much you contribute, you will have our deepest gratitude as well the satisfaction of having aided a worthy project. Thank you!
Please don't worry! We encourage even a pledge of $1.00. Just think, if we had 6,000 people who pledge just $1.00, we'd make our goal!
Well, that's entirely my fault! Please just imagine having to type in washingtontromboneensemble.com about 100 times while creating this project!! :) (And REALLY? We couldn't have a shorter, more compact and user friendly name, huh?)
For whatever reason, I seem to be unable to delete the incorrect link at the top of the list, but the link at the bottom of the list is indeed correct. Please accept my most sincere apologies for this typographical error!
