While putting a polish and shine on the Inspirational Singers CD, Hedreich got the call that the planned January Gölä studio session would be moved up to October. So while mixing one CD Hedreich found herself simultaneously working on music for the new project due out in Spring, once again doing vocal arrangements and singing as well. Word has it that it is still Rock and Roll and it is in English.
No sooner than the vocals were on the reel, the Inspirational Singers were off to romantic Solothun where they won one for “Fridolin” at the National Swiss Choir Contest. Receiving once again top marks–rank “VERY GOOD”– in a competition that featured the finest choirs in the land was a special honor for this seasoned choir, founded by Hedreich and now going into its’ 10th year. The only modern music choir in a wholly classical setting, they were even chosen to perform before the general assembly at the closing ceremony.
Wasn’t there just something on here about singing on Italian beaches? And just where did the lazy days of summer go? Whitney Houston’s once popular “All At Once” describes perfectly the last 2 months. As school started with the usual pitter patter of toddler sensibilities walking in grown-up shoes (Ahhh Jr. High, ya gotta love it!), our Artist was busily working with the Inspirational Singers on their first CD, recorded live in front of a full house in late September. “It was an amazing performance, particularly considering the number of personnel changes the choir went through just before the recording!”
