Last July I mentioned University of Toronto and Juilliard graduate Jonathan Estabrooks' Kickstarter campaign to create a crossover first album with Oran Elder, Jonathan Antoine, and Jennifer Thomas. Well, the campaign was successful, and Jonathan's album These Miles was expanded to include 5-time Grammy Award winning producer Dave Reitzas, the Macedonian Radio Orchestra, and production at LA's Westlake Studios. The release date is fast approaching and Jonathan has chosen to release the CD here in Toronto, with a release concert at 8pm this Friday at the Drake Hotel in Toronto.
To thank the Collaborative Piano Blog community for its support last summer, Jonathan has graciously offered two tickets and a CD to one lucky CPB reader.
To determine the winner, there will once again be a contest....
Competition Rules and Regulations
1. Answer the following question: In which televised opera did Jonathan Estabrooks and I work together in 2004? (Hint: the answer to this question can be found in one of the links above...)
2. Email the answer to me at collaborativepiano [at] gmail dot com with "First Miles CD Giveaway" as the subject.
3. The deadline for entries is Wednesday, April 2 at 10pm EDT. After that I'll randomly draw one entry from the pool of correct answers and announce the winner on the morning of Thursday April 3.
Here's Jonathan talking about his vision for These Miles:
