It's been awhile, I know! Let me get right into what's been going on with Damian Marchand Music the past months...
First, I just finished a demo recording of three new songs; two 19th century Spanish Folk Songs, and a remake of the Beatles' "Yesterday". The pieces include classical guitar, piano, cello, and of course vocal. All three are now posted on the Music Page. Stop by and take a listen and let me know what you think.
(The full versions will not be on the website long, so if you want to hear the songs in their entirety, you should listen soon).
The goal is to continue recording, in effort to complete a full length CD by the end of fall; however, we are still looking for quality songs that fit this style. The search continues.
And now, for the BIG news that many of you have been waiting on, emailing me about and trying to make travel and vacation plans for...
"A Captivating Christmas 2006" is officially scheduled! Mark your calendars now for...
Saturday, November 25th 7:00 PM at the Brandon Valley Performing Arts Center
This is the Saturday immediately following Thanksgiving, so we're hoping it will work well with vacation planning. This year's concert will raise money for the Children's Miracle Network. The Sioux Falls CMN Hospital that we will be directly benefiting is Sanford Children's Hospital at Sioux Valley.
We are very fortunate to have KELO TV's Doug Lund return as the host as well as some of the wonderful musicians we had last year. We have some special surprises planned for this year's event and hope it will meet with last year's success! There will be several more updates on the concert as the time gets closer.
