Award winning soprano Elyse Anne Kakacek has joined forces with accompanist Christopher Fecteau to create a recording of American composer Valerie Saalbach's complete song cycles. The True Capture Records release entitled 'Untethered' contains the world premiere recording of Valerie Saalbach's complete song cycles; Journey of Desire, The Poems of Emily Dickinson, and Catarina de Camoens. Kakacek, who has been praised by OperaNews for her "compelling, lyrical singing." noted about the album; "I saw an opportunity to give voice to a living female composer, with feminine centric music and poetry, in this time when our culture is desperately craving healthy femininity. I saw an opportunity to use music to promote social change- which can be a rare thing in classical music."

CS Music loves to spotlight singers, especially when they have a special project they are working on. This edition features; Elyse Anne Kakacek's 'Untethered: The Song Cycles of Valerie Saalbach." Kakacek shared with us all about the project and her unique perspective during the process.
