NUNNERY ROAD in Enniscorthy is set to become Wexford's answer to Abbey Road with budding recording technicians arriving to learn their craft.
Ten students, from Enniscorthy CBS, Coláiste Bríde, Enniscorthy Vocational College, Bunclody Vocational College and Meanscoil Gharman have enrolled on a new 'Room to Record' project.
And the room in question is in the Presentation Centre on Nunnery Road, which is proving to have ideal acoustics for the exercise.
The teenagers are being coached in subjects such as studio sessions, where to place a microphone, modern music production and recording a live performance.
The course is presented for 16 to 18 year olds by the arts department at Wexford County Council with Orchard Recording Studios and the Arts Council. The participants have access to the best of equipment and computer software.
' The Presentation Centre is a perfect venue for running a course such as Room To Record,' commented Paul Dowling, of Orchard Recording. For Further Information, contact Sinéad Redmond, arts officer with Wexford County Council (053) 9196440 or firstname.lastname@example.org
