Students rock it at Room to Record showcase!
MUSIC can be a complex beast. Some people spend their whole lives trying to perfect their sound and effectively capture their performances. A group of talented young Wexford musicians gained the opportunity to take the first step on the ladder of understanding the technical side of music and stage management as they completed the ‘Room to Record’ programme put on by Orchard Recording Studios in association with Wexford County Council.
The week-long course saw the twenty participants, aged from 15 to 18, learn all the basics of sound, camerawork, stage management and performance, culminating in a special perfor- mance at The Presentation Centre. For the show, the students operated all of the technical aspects themselves, using all they had learned over the course of the week, and also showed off their musical talents taking to the stage themselves to perform.
A great night of music ensued with some of the participants showing that they just may have a bright future in the music business ahead of them. This is the sixth year that Orchard Recording has run the programme, funded by the County Council Arts Department, and the level of interest in it is growing year on year. Organisers thanked those who were in attendance.
