While you were putting together holiday concerts, look what we were up to...

Just like you, we have a tight schedule (and a budget) to stick to each year. Just about the time you're selecting music over the summer, we finish up editing and start recording our first batch of music for the following year. And just about the time you're putting final touches on your holiday concerts, we're back in the studios, recording the balance of our release for our April promotional mailing.

This year, we'll record approximately 125 new chorals, 5 elementary projects, and 5 vocal collections. Our music is recorded in several different places, including Indianapolis, Nashville, Los Angeles, and Saylorsburg, PA.

The largest number of chorals is recorded by our gang at Red Rock Recording in PA. These singers record everything from classics to Broadway, from Latin to Swahili, from serious to silly. Of course, sight-reading and versatility is their strength. And they are all great people to make music with, too! We thought you might enjoy meeting them.
