University of Utah-educated pinainst Joshua Wright will release his new CD, titled "My Favorite Things," tomorrow.
He said in a statement:
This project was an enormous undertaking, as this last year I was juggling the first year of my doctorate at the University of Michigan, recording this album, performing, and teaching. However, I had the support of so many wonderful people, and I'm very pleased with how it turned out. My last album, entitled "Josh Wright" combined classical themes with hymns; this album focuses on classical themes combined with popular songs and movie themes. I'd love your help in spreading the word about this, so if you think any family or friends who would enjoy the album, please forward this email on to them. Below is a link to the website if you would like to order a copy. It's also available in all Deseret Book stores, as well as other select stores like Barnes and Noble, Walmart, and a few other places in Utah and surrounding states.
