Recording Sessions Begun!

...and we're off!  Last night, six VOX 3 members kicked off recording sessions at Uptown Recording, thanks to YOUR support!

Over four hours, we were able to get several great takes of song cycles which comprise the heart of our recording project.  It became clear in the studio last night just how incredibly diverse these two albums will be.  Whether the tender atmosphere of Randall West's "Judith Had Come to Her Home," touchingly rendered by Laura Pinto; Amos Gillespie's smartly crafted "Circle Dance Music," brought to life by Rebecca Prescott; the chilling sounds of Randall Moore's "The Lake," sung by Kimberly Gunderson; or the driving, humorous performance of Adam Gustafson's "Morning Commute" by Ashlee Hardgrave, there is truly something for every taste.  Our VOX 3 music director James Morehead has prepared the performers well for this task, and provides superb, sensitive accompaniment throughout.  With these fine performances, you will be charmed, surprised, moved, and perhaps even challenged by the featured material.

There are just nine days left in our Kickstarter fundraising campaign.  You have helped us out so much already with your generous donations.  By telling a friend about our project, you can further your support and help us ensure only the highest-quality finished product.  Moreover, by spreading the word, we can pave the way for VOX 3 to continue performing and preserving the fascinating rare repertoire it has been associated with over the last five seasons. 

Vielen Dank!  We are most grateful for all your support and encouragement - Let's keep it up!
