The Coming Hallelujah Chorus

I must have listened to more Christmas music this year than normal, plus we attended the Seattle Symphony’s concert of Handel’s Messiah because I got inspired to do some recording.   During the holiday down time (does that really exist anyway?) I got to work doing my own pop/rock arrangement and instrumentation of Handel’s Hallelujah Chorus.  Most of the tracking is completed, but I haven’t gotten into the mixing phase yet.  But I think even without that it is sounding pretty good.  Here is a snippet, the final few bars everyone loves as a ringtone in case you want […] Continue Reading…

Sounds of the Season

Managed to capture this clip of the US Navy Band Wind Trio playing Jingle Bells prior to their free Christmas concert at the Everett Washington performing arts center.  They were members of the US Navy Band Northwest based at Naval Base Kitsap, Bangor located in Silverdale, Washington.
