The DePauw University Band, conducted by Craig Paré, proudly announces the release of its ninth compact disc, United Artists. As with three of its previous CDs (Toccata Festiva, Brooklyn Bridge and Starsplitter), this newest release will be distributed on the Mark Masters label. United Artists was recorded April 24-27, 2014 in DePauw’s Kresge Auditorium.
“Being issued by the Mark Masters label is an honor,” says Dr. Paré. “The distinction means that we have not only been recognized for the high quality of our performances, but that we will also be distributed around the world alongside professional ensembles such as the United States Marine Band, ‘The President’s Own,’ the United States Air Force Band, the Dallas Wind Symphony, and the Tokyo Kosei Wind Orchestra. The quality of our students’ performances is also a testament to the excellent teaching that takes place each day in the DePauw School of Music.”
