Elliot Scheiner comments, “I’ve recorded two albums with this group and their vocal talents are astonishing. For the lucky attendees this will be a unique opportunity to see and hear how we capture acapella voices for their upcoming album.”

Founding member and musical director Darmon Meader adds, “New York Voices are thrilled to be working with Elliot Scheiner once again! Elliot produced and engineered two of our past projects: “Sing! Sing! Sing!” (2001, Concord) and “Let It Snow” (2013, Five Cent Records), and he continues to be one of our favorite studio gurus. We thank Elliot for inviting us to join him in the studio, and look forward to meeting the METAlliance attendees. It should be a fun experience for all of us.”
