The Spirit of Christmas

The Allen County Courthouse is one of the finest Beaux Arts style public buildings in the country. This shining edifice has served the people of Allen County for over 100 years, and it is here, under the stained glass dome of the rotunda that Heartland recorded the music for “The Spirit of Christmas.” 

The impetus behind the recording came from a concert presented in the Courthouse during the fall of 2013.  The audience and singers were so moved by the experience, that everyone knew that more concerts needed to happen in this space.  Thus, on weekend in August of 2014, the singers gathered to record and in December of 2014 we premiered the first "Spirit of Christmas" concerts.  

Being that the building represents a sacred role in the community, namely the rule of law and the ideals of justice and community, and standing as stellar examples of architecture, art and acoustics, it seemed most appropriate to start a community tradition of gathering in this place to celebrate the ideals of Christmas – peace, love for neighbor and the gift of community.  Get your copy today...the music and singing are simply stellar!

Maestro Nance - Attitude Series

Maestro Robert Nance's "Attitude" series of recordings has finally come to a close with the recent release of "Amplitude". All of the CD's are available for purchase, with special offers on CD sets. They're a must have for any keyboard enthusiast's collection! All proceeds go to help fund Heartland's educational outreach programs.

Attitude Series - Volume One: Solitude

"This recording is the first of a series of four recordings entitled "Attitudes." It came about because I wanted to capture the variety of artistry that my career has embodied in the past decade as a freelance-performing artist. While the bulk of my creative output principally involves conducting ensembles and training musicians, my performing roots are as a keyboardist. I perform regularly in classical, jazz and spiritual settings, which has broadened my experience and accounts for the many "attitudes" that can embody this series. I hope you will find in listening to these selections the same pleasure it has given me to make them available to you. All proceeds go to help fund Heartland's educational outreach programs." ~Maestro Robert Nance

Attitude Series - Volume Two: Gratitude

"This recording is the second in a series of recordings entitled "Attitudes." Where the first album (entitled "Solitude") dealt with the introspective spirit that helps to feed one's creativity, this album embodies the spirit of "Gratitude," which helps to round out one's overall creative spirit. All proceeds go to help fund Heartland's educational outreach programs." ~Maestro Robert Nance

Attitude Series - Volume Three: Fortitude

"This recording is the third in a series of recordings entitles "Attitudes." The first two recordings - Solitude and Gratitude - feature me as a solo pianist; Fortitude features some of the "Cats" with whom I regularly perform. Both Brad Kuhns and Dave Mendenhall have performed with me in various settings for over 20 years. More recently, my friend and colleague Alexander Klepach and I have been performing duo concerts with a growing following. All in all, these relationships fortify me personally and professionally, and I know I'm a much better musician because their presence in my life. I hope you will find in listening to these selections the same joy we experience when we play together. There is no greater pleasure than to sit down with these talented cats and perform for you. All proceeds go to help fund Heartland's educational outreach programs. " ~Maestro Robert Nance

Attitude Series - Volume Four: Amplitude

"This recording is the final in a series of recordings entitled "Attitudes." The first two recordings - Solitude and Gratitude - feature me as a solo pianist; the third, Fortitude, features me and some friends with whom I regularly perform; this recording is the only one in the set to feature the organ and is entitles Amplitude because one of my favorite things to do when I play the organ is to crank up the volume. From the first moment I began to play the organ I have enjoyed the orchestral nature of the instrument and it's ability to rattle the rafters. All proceeds go to help fund Heartland's educational outreach programs. " ~Maestro Robert Nance
