award-winning singer/songwriter siblings, cher & gene klosner, have just completed their fourth cd, stardust, a 2-disc collection of lullabies for all ages. stardust features cher & gene klosner�s trademark rich, lilting vocals accompanied by the talents of several members of the omaha symphony and omaha conservatory of music, and top shelf jazz players.

cher & gene klosner, whose music has been recorded by the von trapp children and performed by several symphonies (including the omaha symphony, atlanta symphony, pacific symphony, toronto symphony, indianapolis symphony, minnesota symphony, and the cincinnati symphony, conducted by the legendary erich kunzel), wanted to educate young ears by recording as many authentic instruments as possible, rather than using all synthesized �instrument sound-alikes" that are prevalent on many children�s recordings. �i remember as a child the first time i heard peter and the wolf� i fell in love with the musical instruments and how they could tell a tale and bring the story to life,� says cher. �after my son was born, singing and playing lullaby music became part of our �night-night� routine but i became frustrated in discovering that very few lullaby cd's used any real instruments � most used all synthesized instruments that, unfortunately, lack the human touch, feel and emotion that comes from a real instrument and a live player. out of that frustration came the idea for stardust, in which we utilized authentic instruments wherever possible including grand piano, cello, flute, violin, oboe, clarinet, vibes, acoustic guitar and more.�

cher & gene klosner, whose performance highlights include world youth day, with pope john paul ii and president clinton, us olympic swim trials, college world series, the grand ole opry, american magazine, and many 9/11 tribute events in new york and l.a., began recording stardust in march 2007, but have had stardust in the back of their minds long before then. �our mom used to sing us to sleep when we were kids and since i sing my son to sleep almost every night with many of the same songs my mom sang to me, a lullaby cd was a natural choice for our next project,� says cher. �many parents feel they �don�t know how to sing,� and they miss out on such a beautiful ritual. so in addition to the vocal tracks, we�ve provided instrumental tracks with a �guide� instrument to help all parents be able to sing their loved ones to sleep.� �we set out to make this a lullaby collection for all ages,� gene adds, �and we're finding that the adults like stardust as much as the kids do.�
the original cd art work was created by cher�s husband, emmy award-winning �the simpsons� assistant director and animator, ben lane. the lanes reside in omaha, nebraska, with their seven-year-old son, benjamin, who makes his singing debut on stardust as mommy�s duet partner on �little sir echo,� while gene divides his time between omaha and la.
