WATER MUSIC Recording is HERE!

Due to a significant Winter storm, we had to cancel our Super Bowl Baroque Concert. Anticipating this possibility, we decided to turn our dress rehearsal into a recording session. We encourage you to listen to and/or download the performance. We are very proud of the work on this recording, and we hope you will enjoy hearing it as much as we enjoyed making it. Special thanks to Alan Bodman for recording the dress rehearsal, and to Grammy Award winning Producer (and Akron Baroque oboist) Thom Moore for his editing and producing of this recording.
