Sun Prairie Jazz students put together a virtual big band recording for the 2020 Madison Area Music Association Awards. Students rehearsed on their own and spent time at Audio for the Arts in Madison to put the whole thing together. The recording was put together by having students work in isolation booths and lay down their parts individual and mixed into one. Through the work of the professionals at Audio for the Arts it sounds like the band was actually playing together!
This recording features solos by Melanie Kettlesen on vocals, Tyler Stoll on trombone, Pierre Tan on alto saxophone, and Kallan Engleson on piano. They were joined by Cole Ledrowski on baritone saxophone, Eric Hackett , Devin Ruplinger, and Katie Peschke on trumpet, and Eli Bontrager on guitar, Danica Fe Rubadaiou on Bass and Olivia Flood on drums.
