2016 Updates

In addition to the other stories we've posted, here are a few other projects we worked on this past year!

LudwigMasters Publishing

In January we did our annual multi-day recording session for LudwigMasters Publishing’s new releases catalog including band, full orchestra, string orchestra and chamber ensemble arrangements. We have been recording for their catalog for the past 13 years, utilizing top Cleveland area musicians. The musicians are led by the famous Loras John Schissal, Senior Acquisitions Specialist with the Library of Congress and conductor extraordinaire. We followed this up in September with another session with LudwigMasters featuring the music of Mike Lewis arranger, composer and musician.

AnimalHero and Healthy Discussion

Laurel Herman (AnimalHero.com) was in the studio again with her continuing Animal Hero and Healthy Discussion podcasts in which she interviews prominent physicians in various fields. This project began in 2013 with Dr. Kevin Flemming, of the Mayo Clinic, on pain and management. The series grew to a broad series of podcasts. These can be found at AnimalHero.com, iTunes and Soundcloud.com/healthydiscussion.

Health Journeys 

In February we worked on new releases from Health Journeys. We have been fortunate to have a long-standing relationship with Belleruth Naparstek and Health Journeys (www.healthjourneys.com.) Belleruth is a pioneer in guided imagery, and HJ is also producing for other practitioners, such as Traci Stein, PhD., and Julie Lusk.



Cleveland Orchestra in Miami


Also in February, Bruce continued his live Cleveland Orchestra concert broadcasts from The Arscht Center for Performing Arts in Miami, Florida.  He traveled twice in January, and once in March for a total of four broadcasts. These broadcast recordings have been ongoing for 10 years.

Georgina Gatto, Soprano

In June Bruce flew to Grand Cayman Island to record soprano Georgina Gatto and Judit Gabos on piano for her upcoming Amor sólo Amor CD.

Cleveland Orchestra at Public Square

July 29, 2016– We spent the day downtown for the annual Cleveland Orchestra free concert on Public Square. We recorded and mixed the concert for live broadcast on WCPN and WCLV.

Michael Hronek "Songs for Susan"

August started a new project with Michael Hronek, composer and pianist. “Songs for Susan” was completed in December.  Dylan Moffitt contributed percussion tracks for this CD. 




Violinist Tom Wood

In September we recorded Tom Wood's violin recital at the College of Wooster.

Thank you to all our wonderful clients in 2016, we're looking forward to even more great work in 2017!
