'A Child's Christmas in Wales' CD wins a Silver ADDY Award

Austin Jazz musicians Alex Coke and Suzi Stern's latest cd, A Child's Christmas in Wales (Aardvark Records), won a Silver Addy Award at last Friday night's Addy ceremonies in the Packaging category. It now advances to the District competition and, if it wins there, the National. The unique, pop-up art packaging was produced by Marla Camp at Impact Productions with artists Steve Stratakos (pop-up illustration) and Steve Wiswell (pop-up design).
