Network Chat: January 2021
Wednesday, January 27 at 7 p.m. Recording and Producing an Album A behind-the-scenes look and listening party for “Stravinsky: Alone No More” by the Hartwick Faculty Wind Octet
Members of Hartwick’s music faculty created extraordinary music in the fall of 2019, and our students and alumni helped make it happen. In this special virtual event, they will give us a taste of the music, share the student experience of making an album, and offer behind-the-scenes surprises!
Dr. Andrew Pease, assistant professor of music and director of instrumental music, led a faculty group in performing music centered on the famous Stravinsky Octet, with additional new works by four visiting composers. When the group reconvened to professionally record the performance, four students were tapped as assistant producers on the album. James Dana ‘21, Ushuaia Diaz ‘21, Julia Butts ‘21, and Russell Elster ’20, and Paul Blake ’01 (now Hartwick’s resident artist in low brass) all brought their Hartwick passion to the recording and developed professional experience in the process.
