This album represents Sphere’s first four years of musical exploration, from the first note on our first concert to the moment on January 6th, 2015 when we began the recording process. It includes pieces written for specifically for string ensemble, and tunes we've arranged to present music we love on our own terms. The music takes the listener on a journey through our many musical influences, from our classical roots outward.

"It's a rare instance a classical ensemble can pull off a believable rendition of classic pop and rock songs like 'Hallelujah' by Leonard Cohen or 'Come Sail Away' by Styx... Sphere Ensemble hit the bullseye in an eclectic blend with choice classical works."
