Symphonic Band's CD cover
At home … is the first full-length compact disc recording by The Ohio State University Symphonic Band. This recording project represents a rich collaborative achievement. The enthusiasm for the project within our Music, Media and Enterprise program enabled us to record, edit, master and produce the entire recording on campus. The willingness of the conductors and musicians of our Women’s and Men’s Glee Clubs facilitated the inclusion of Symphony No. 8, and provided the memorable experience of more than 200 musicians engaged in the creation of musical art. The patience and cooperation of our concert audiences to facilitate the inclusion of live recordings was of tremendous assistance. As a project that spanned an entire academic year, the cooperation of the entire School of Music community in facilitating the five brief recording sessions was critical to its success. And the commitment of the musicians to honor the spirit of each composition and the process of commercial recording — a first for each of them — was pivotal. There is much for which to be thankful as this project comes to its completion. 

—Scott A. Jones, conductor
