The Ontario CD project
Be part of the production of Erie, a selection of musical highlights from our 2014-15 season, the fourth CD of the Great Lakes Series!
The Five Lakes Silver Band gathered again in July to rehearse to record. These tracks will be compiled into Ontario – the fourth CD our 5 disc Great Lakes Series set. Huron, Erie, and Michigan are previous releases available in the band's web shop.
We recorded the audio at the Cathedral of St. Paul in Detroit, Michigan, where the band has performed in the past (for the annual Detroit Noel Night celebration); the acoustics in the space are nicely suited for the sound of the band.
Although there is much enthusiasm surrounding the project, our annual budget is not very large, and the CD duplication and production costs represent a significant challenge.
Five Lakes Silver Band is asking for support of this project to help offset the following costs:
- Royalty fees
- Post recording production costs
- Creating the CD audio master
- Cover artwork rendering and printing
- Physical duplication
- Final assembly
The CD jacket will include a permanent record of all backers at or above the $25 level. Any subsequent duplication runs of this CD will include this list of names. Take this opportunity to show your support for the band and be recognized in turn!
Consider getting involved with this project and receive some top flight music or concert tickets for live performances in the process.
