    Another Free Holiday CD for Download - Nutcracker Ballet

    As another way to show our thanks to our wonderful online communities we are offering another free album for download. These tracks are excerpts from the live Nutcracker Ballet performance by the Northwest Ballet Theatre. All the tracks on this site were made using Garritan Personal Orchestra and were a collaboration of efforts by some of our most notable digital artists: Haydn, Danielle Davis, Francesco Marchetti, FrankS, and others. A special thanks goes out to these individuals for the time and effort they spent and the hard work and dedication that went into this project. A big thanks goes out to Haydn who contributed the lions share of the work. And thanks to Gary Garritan for making it all possible.

    Please feel free to download (or stream) the songs directly from the site or download the complete album in zipped format. Included on the site are the CD labels and covers as well as some information about the performance.

    We sincerely hope you enjoy this collection of songs as much as we do. They truely are wonderful. Its just another way for us to say thanks to our forum members this holiday season.

    So download them, burn them to CD, and enjoy!

    Since I used Flash for the site design can everyone see the site and is it functional? Any Mac users checked it out yet?

    Many thanks to Joseph Burrell who put together the Nutcracker site and designed the MP3 player. The player can stream or dowmload mp3s, can navigate songlists and has buttons for downloading artwork.

    Did you all get a chance to check out Joseph's Mp3 Flash player. He designed that from the ground up. A modified version of this player will be used for the other 600+ GPO demos.

    What does everyone think of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor DreamPlayer?

    Ha! I can't believe it will take me almost three hours to download the zip file. Dang, wish I had a burner at work.
