Acoustic songsmith Steve Bell records with Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra

VETERAN Canadian singer/songwriter Steve Bell has recorded an album with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra. The album 'Symphony Sessions' is released on Bell's Signpost Records. Said Bell, "Last year at this time, the idea of recording a CD and performing concerts with symphony orchestras across Canada wasn't even on the radar. But sometime in June 2006, the WSO called to see if I'd consider a concert with them for the fall. Of course I jumped at the opportunity. Mike Janzen stepped forward to arrange the scores and we set all our energies toward preparing for what has been the most remarkable concert experience of my career. It's hard to describe the synergy of an uber-eager audience, a core group of remarkable musicians and one of Canada's finest orchestras. But then add to that what I think we all felt as the pure blessing and pleasure of God - and you might begin to imagine the evening we had. The result was that we simply had to do it again, and share it with a wider audience." CR
