We send our best wishes to one and all especially at this time, with gratitude for those who work to keep us safe as well as to keep things going, and with hopes that everyone stays healthy and finds ways to connect amidst the current restrictions. With that in mind, we would like to offer free listening during the pandemic. This recording is not the finished product we hope to eventually be able to share! We put it together quickly in June 2016 to serve as a demo recording for website audio clips as well as for grant applications. We’ve performed it numerous times since then, making some changes along the way and getting it more into our fingers, but we feel it could still bring enjoyment to listeners. So here is our early version of Salmon & Dipper’s Wondrous Journey, set to Claude Debussy’s Sonata for Flute, Viola and Harp, with Samantha Whelan Kotkas, narrator; Lucie Jones, flute; Gianetta Baril, harp; and Liza Scriggins, viola. Special thanks to Mark Ellestad for serving as sound engineer, Mount Royal Conservatory for allowing us to record in the TransAlta Pavilion, and Olga Cuttell for her gorgeous artwork. The three tracks altogether take about 18 minutes. Enjoy, and take care!
