Congratulations to Conservatory alumni Jonathan Borja (MM flute 2005; MM Musicology and DMA flute 2010) and Kristín Jónina Taylor (BM 1997 and MM 1999 piano) on the release of their collaborative CD recording Thorkell Sigurbjörnsson: Short Stories for Flute and Piano on Smekkleysa records. This recording includes the complete works for flute and piano by Icelandic composer Thorkell Sigurbjörnsson (1938–2013) who gave his blessing for the final product before his passing, and it includes the first recording of some of his works.

The CD was recorded in UMKC Conservatory's White Recital Hall and uses the Richard Cass Memorial Piano. It was recorded, edited, and mixed by UMKC alumni Bob Beck, (Bachelor of Liberal Arts, 1994, A&S; MFA, UMKC Theatre, 1999.)
