Barihunk John Brancy and pianist Peter Dugan have launched an Indiegogo campaign to fund a recording based on their amazing live show A Silent Night: A WWI Centenary Tribute in Song, which premiered at the Kennedy Center in 2014. The took the show on tour to the University of Chicago, the Montreal Conservatory of Music in collaboration with Société d'art vocal, Opera Saratoga, the Joye at the Aiken Festival and St. John's College.

The two have been collaborative musical partners and friends since they met as students at the Juilliard School in 2007.

The program is a collection of classical and popular art songs written mostly by composers who lived through, fought, and died in the Great War. A Silent Night organizes these songs by the major countries involved in the war, beginning with British composers Gerald Finzi, George Butterworth, and Ivor Gurney, rarely heard lieder of German composer Carl Orff, songs by the great French composers Ravel, Poulenc, and Debussy, and the iconic American composer Charles Ives.

The recording will be available for sale on all online platforms including Amazon and iTunes, as well as on CD. Perks to support the campaign start as low as $5.00. You can support the campaign HERE.
