Music Group is a cultural and business initiative based in Saint John, New
Brunswick, Canada. Launched in the winter of 2015, Epcom Music exists to promote the musical efforts of artists in our Maritime talent pool.
Information on contributing composers can be found in the "Artists & Composers" menu and information on their creations can be found in the "Music" menu; both available on the menu to your left .
This website, and this home page, will be updated regularly as new arrangements are made available.
For our first offering we present arrangements of Jim Stewart's " The Marco Polo Suite ", a musical tribute to "the fastest ship in all the world", the people who built her and those who sailed upon her.
The studio album of this music was recorded in 1991-92 at the Epcom Studios here in New Brunswick, composed by Jim Stewart and coproduced by Stewart & Gary Chase, and engineered by Mike Boyer.
In 2002 the live multimedia production of " The Marco Polo Suite - A Folk Opera " was presented by Opera New Brunswick at Saint John's Imperial Theatre.
Currently on this web site, you will find arrangements of Jim Stewart's Marco Polo Suite music, arranged for orchestral musicians by Christine Chase. Also see jimstewartmusic.ca
These arrangements have been created in the hope that amateur and professional orchestral musicians will incorporate Jim's memorable melodies into their repertoire and perform them with pride.
If you have questions or wish to place an order for an arrangement, please contact the composer /arranger directly.
The Marco Polo arrangements currently listed are available and may be ordered by contacting: firstname.lastname@example.org
