The single was recorded and produced inside Jefferson Center’s professional recording studio and arts education hub, Music Lab. All sales proceeds benefit Jefferson Center’s efforts to make music education available at the Music Lab to teens in grades 6-12 who want to learn music production, recording, performance, and all the basics of the music business.
Jefferson Center’s Executive Director, Cyrus Pace said, “There’s World of Song focused on building an original Darrell Scott song using voices from around our community and throughout the nation. We are honored that it showcases the collaboration and creative processes happening between artists from all over the world and students right here in Jefferson Center’s Music Lab.”
“Jefferson Center and its Music Lab are one of the most impressive music education programs available in the U.S. today,” said Darrell Scott. “It was important to find a way to help Music Lab grow in both education and students and I am pleased by the extraordinary group of musicians who said ‘yes’ when Dylan and I asked for their time and voices.”
“We are grateful for the support of artists who have performed at The Jefferson Center in recent years who came together to produce this single. There’s a World of Song demonstrates how a simple idea becomes a reality,” said Dylan Locke, Artistic Director for The Jefferson Center.
