The Five at Play album is finally done, and we couldn’t be happier with the result. We worked closely with recording engineer/producer Greg Dixon of Dixon Sound Services for many, many hours to get everything sounding just right. Then it went to Blair Liikala, head of recording services at the University of North Texas, for mastering. We can’t wait for everyone to hear this recording!
The album will be released digitally and on CD on Nov. 15. If you were one of our awesome Kickstarter backers, you should be receiving it around that time also!
If you live in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, we’d love to see you at our CD release event next Friday, Nov. 2 at 7:30 pm in Denton! Celebrate our new album with a short MW performance and food and drink on us! See the Facebook event page for more details.
One last thing…
We’re excited to announce that we have a new oboist! We welcome to Madera Wind Quintet Andrew Gresham from California, who just began his masters degree in oboe at the University of North Texas. Best of luck to our lovely oboist for the last two years Natalie Lorch, who has moved to New York to begin a doctorate at Stony Brook.
