Music Publishers of America (“MPA”) will soon expand its promotion of music in the Vitak-Elsnic collection when it releases its first CD. That’s right, MPA is going into the CD business!
Consistent with our mission to promote music from the polka genre, we are taking a unique approach by presenting this timeless music in different styles, including everything from a ballad to a tune with a Latin beat, as well as completely new arrangements of some of standard Vitak-Elsnic tunes, including Red Raven Polka and Snow Waltz. Also featured are new English language lyrics that tell a story. The title of the CD, Then and Now, reflects the connection between the music of the past and its presentation for today’s music lovers. An all-star group of musicians took Vitak-Elsnic music to a whole new level!
The studio work has finished up and we’re in final production of the CD. Release date is anticipated in early July. We’ll provide more details as we finalize this project.
