Whiting, Ian Wiese and Adam Schumaker, performers Wolcott Humphrey and Andrea Baker, recording engineer Joel Crawford, and artist Will Borich.
Joined by accompanists Timothy Flores and Christy Salle, this album will include previously unrecorded music for euphonium and piano. With a little bit of everything this project will includes music composed in various different styles with a range of techniques. Original works, transcriptions, contemporary, and unaccompanied works all join together to make one creative accomplishment.
