Heritage: An American Legacy
The album Heritage: An American Legacy explores a diverse representation of American composers through piano repertoire from the 20th and 21st century. Much of this repertoire is absent from mainstream concert stages and in some cases also pedagogical discussion. That being said this music is for everyone! The beauty of America is in its diversity; and a musical tapestry that speaks to an array of people and tastes.
The album has been recorded and the MSR label has agreed to publish the album! All funds raised will go towards the final mastering and production costs (upward to $9000). The goal is to release the album in the spring of 2019. Everyone who donates--no matter how big or small--will get a free signed copy of the album!
Thank you in advance! I can not do this without your support! I am thrilled and honored to have recorded this music. Beyond grateful and blessed to contribute to the recordings of American repertoire for many generations to learn and enjoy!
