It's exciting for me to see projects of the Mormon Arts Center continue to have a life beyond our projects. One example is the concert at Carnegie Hall by Scott Holden, A Century of Mormon Music. While he was rehearsing, he was also going into the recording studio. The result is a CD, The Unknown Galaxy: A Century of Classical Mormon Music, produced by Tantara Records' Heritage Series. For those unable to have attended the concert live, this is the next best thing. 

Two days after the concert, Scott and I sat down for a podcast interview. I had a terrific time discussing with him the behind-the-scenes story of the concert, how he discovered and prepared the music, his relationship with the composers and the music, and his evolving feelings about the championing of Mormon music.
