Amanda Powell's Beyond Boundaries is a collection of songs from around the world, including Venezuela, Bulgaria, Mongolia, Ireland, and the Middle East. The recording "transcends boundaries of genre, style, region, and expectation into the connective heart of music." Powell, a featured vocal soloist with Apollo’s Fire Baroque Orchestra has traveled the world collecting the songs and stories featured here. Several Youngstown State University faculty participated in this recording including clarinetist Alice Wang, percussionist Glenn Schaft, and pianists Cicilia Yudha and Alton Merrell. Dave Morgan, Professor of Jazz Studies and Double Bass, co-produced and arranged the music, as well as playing bass. Glenn plays congas, frame drums, and assorted hand-held percussion on three of the tracks.
