Q. “What makes a live-recording different than other events?”
1. You get to be a part of an experience that will exist far beyond the day.
2. Unlike usual festivals full of noise, this festival will be full of music and singing captured on CD. Therefore, it becomes imperative that noise other than singing is eliminated. We will all be doing the same thing at the same time during the musical parts of the day.
3. The live recording is being professionally captured to be turned into a record that you will be able to purchase when done. All proceeds from album sales will also go to benefit Arts in the Park. 4. Like regular festivals, there is an artisan market and food court to be enjoyed should you need a break.
