Starsplitter: A Review

By Matthew C. Haislip • December 04, 2019 in Recordings
The DePauw University Band plays with a maturity and joy that makes listening to this CD an enjoyable experience. The faculty performances are worth hearing, as well. I look forward to hearing other discs from the faculty and students at DePauw.
