What a fabulous, celebratory year our 35th Anniversary has been. Concerts in Macau, Tenerife and Pozna? ... our relationship and more concerts with the Golden State Pops Orchestra, and our always full slate of new film soundtracks. With all of this going on, something had to give and our poor CD Club was given a bit of a hiatus. For all those who have waited so patiently, the Club now returns with new titles being announce on Monday, December 9. Hopefully everyone will find something of interest in our new, typically diverse batch of special releases. And we certainly have more goodies lined up for 2014. Happy Holidays to everyone! Let the joyous news be spread ... the CD Club is not dead! Visit our website on Monday, December 9 for the new titles to be revealed and ordered.
