We won’t say that recording an album at The DiMenna Center guarantees you a Grammy (@recordingacademy), but we haven’t had a bad track record!! Huge congratulations to longtime clients and friends @nyyouthsymphony and Music Director Michael Repper for their win for “Best Orchestral Performance,” to our client @intothewoodsbroadway for winning “Best Musical Theater Album,” and to our partners Audiosmith Digital Solutions who provided recording services for both! Bravo everyone! Well deserved!
