06.30.19 Rehearsal Playlist

06.30.19 KC Area Youth Jazz rehearsal / We begin recording the album in 2 weeks! It's been a great journey to get here.

Mr. Crain briefed the 2019 Fellows about the preparations and we also talked about some of the inherent considerations within a recording session process from the performing artist perspective.

This playlist of video clips includes the portion of the rehearsal involving work on "Light/Dark" a stellar composition commissioned for the program written by our 2019 Composer-In-Residence, Dr. Arthur White.

And the last two clips are of Dr. White's composition, "Bird Flu."
