Is anyone here interested in doing this and splitting the costs?
They require 2 hours of booking time.
If I had 3 participants to join me we could split the cost 4 ways and each record a short piece. $2000 is out of my range, but $500 or $250 would be doable, and it would be worth it to have a recording of my music.
If I get enough responses (up to $2000) then we can all record. I値l find a reliable treasurer (like perhaps Gary if he値l be so kind) to just take the payments and send the check.
Believe me, I am strapped for cash too, but sooner or later, I have to get something else recorded for real. College orchestras have been too busy and I've used this service before.
No travel or lodging is necessary. I値l be having a conductor do it and send the masters back. If anyone needs any help with sheet music preparation or orchestration checking, I can probably do that for you. Just email the files.
