PRESS RELEASE: Casey Crescenzo, frontman of rock band The Dear Hunter, is composing his first symphony, and is raising funds from his fans to finance the four-movement work’s recording with the Brno Philharmonic Orchestra in the Czech Republic this fall.
Incentives for those who support the project at http://pledgemusic.com/thedearhunter range from autographed score books and a limited edition double gatefold vinyl release of the symphony, to the opportunity to join Crescenzo in the Czech Republic for the recording, or have him hand-deliver the vinyl release and score book to their home and perform a private concert.
Ambitious musical endeavors are nothing new for Crescenzo. The Dear Hunter’s first three albums, “Acts I-III,” represented the first half of a planned six-act story saga; he then took a break from the saga to record “The Color Spectrum,” a series of nine EPs each named for, and thematically oriented to, one of the colors of the rainbow (plus black and white). Earlier this year, The Dear Hunter released “The Color Spectrum Live” DVD, featuring a performance of all 36 songs from the series, accompanied by a string quartet. They’ll also be joined by a string quartet for select major-market dates on their September U.S. tour in support of new album “Migrant.” (See below for a list of dates.)
