Wednesday night was the premier of Paul Lansky’s Contemplating Weather, a multi-movement work commissioned for the WMU School of Music’s 100th Anniversary. It features poetry by Jonathan Greene and utilizes an eleven instrumentalist ensemble and a full SATB choir. On Friday, after months or preparation, Dr. David Colson and Dr. Kimberly Adams delivered us through the creation of recording with Bridge Records. In short, this last week before spring break has been very busy.
A big thanks to our leadership, ensemble members, choir, and recording engineers for making this happen. I feel very lucky to have been a part of this process and am very excited to hear the end product when the album is finished.
