In the Studio

Recently, we were fortunate enough to work with noted Austin musician Guy Forsyth in the studio, who recorded the parts of Vincent over Laura’s vocals! Working with Guy was wonderful, and his voice was perfect for the part of Vincent.

Also, Premila is now working with a small group of 5th to 8th graders who will be recording the songs sung by the young artist chorus. They soon will be recording in a studio up in DC. Check out a short clip of one of their rehearsals:
