Project Main Details

Westward I Go Free 
I need a series of quotes by Henry David Thoreau recorded for use in a high school marching band show. To give you an idea of how we'll be using these, here is a video of our show from last year which also used quotes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cAkinkoRbJk

I imagine the voice being an American pioneer (think wagon trains). I little rugged, but not full-blown country. The text is poetic and sophisticated, so the voice needs to be able to support that.

You can hear one of these quotes being read here: https://youtu.be/XGmVFl6E28w?t=56m46s

That's from a Ken Burns documentary. I think that reading is pretty good, but a little flat.

You can deliver a single audio file containing all the quotes. We have have a lot of experience doing this sort of thing, so we can handle the audio editing.
