No words can describe the devastation that faces the world as a result of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. However, as German poet Heinrich Heine noted, "where words leave off, music begins." With this album, we seek to bring some much-needed positivity to the world through exceptional music and the ability to help our neighbors in a time of crisis.
All proceeds from this album will go to Pennsbury Kids, which is a foundation local to the Bucks County area. Pennsbury Kids works exclusively with Pennsbury staff, specifically social workers, to solve the needs that are not able to be met with existing programs from the federal, state, county, or other nonprofit organizations. Pennsbury Kids helps students obtain their basic needs and participate in their school's community.
The album could not be possible without the work of pianist Kartik Kannan, guitarist Christopher Heitmann, bassists Max Kozol, Ashley Parry, and Bill Rupp, drummers Duncan Costello, Jacob Shin, and Victor Sorace, and guest soloists Gregory Glatzer (clarinet), Isabel LaCarrubba, and Austin Massey (both trombone). Special thanks must also be given to Christopher Heitmann and Victor Sorace for their help in editing all of the recordings to produce the works on the track, and to the entire Pennsbury Instrumental Music Department for helping us become the musicians we are today. We hope you enjoy the project, and thank you for your support both for us and Pennsbury Kids!
