Documenting the Alaska Suite

Fall 2018 was busy!

In addition to many successful performances, we recorded the Alaska Suite music at David Lange Studios in September 2018. Please sign up on the Alaska Suite mailing list to hear when the CD is available.

Inspired by a live performance, producer and videographer Bill Lange decided to create a 30-minute documentary about the Alaska Suite. A large camera crew videotaped an Alaska Suite performance in the Chapel Performance Space in Seattle in November 2018. This footage and more from the recording studio and personal interviews will be edited in the coming months.

Here are some preview excerpts from the CD recording:


Nelda Swiggett – compositions, piano, voice
Julian Smedley – violin
Clif Swiggett – trombone, bongos, voice
