Stu­dents rock it at Room to Record show­case!

Enniscorthy Guardian - - PICTURES -

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.
