Talented faculty members who excel in their respective fields make up one of Marietta’s points of pride — and when professors team up on a creative project, it really showcases the depth of their talents.
This year, faculty and staff members from the Music and Art departments collaborated to develop, perform and produce the album “I Carry Your Heart: Songs for Soprano and Piano.”
“Other than the involvement of the record company, this project was completed entirely at Marietta College by MC faculty and staff,” says Dr. Andrew Francis, Assistant Professor and Chair of the Music Department.
Francis composed the music for the album, and Amy Yekel and Merewyn Weinkauf performed the music. Their performances were recorded and mastered by Vinnie Mele, an adjunct instructor in the Music Department, using the Dream Weaver Studio in McKinney Hall, and McCoy Associate Professor of Graphic Design Z Zerbe-Comer designed the album artwork. The album is produced through Equilibrium and is available on iTunes, Spotify, YouTube and other major streaming services.
