Academy set to release second album
The Corby Business Academy music department will be releasing their latest album this autumn, the follow up to ‘Music Means Business’, which the Academy produced in 2014.
The students spent two days recording tracks with audio and visual production company World of Sounds and their Director of Sound Adam Goldsmith, who also recorded the previous album.
The album will feature various ensembles including the Senior Concert Band, Junior Concert Band, Big Band, Woodwind Ensemble, Brass Ensemble, Senior Choir-Close Harmony, Junior Choir-CBA Vocalize and four of our fantastic soloists.
The CD is now in the post-production stage where the track order, artwork, name and 8-page booklet are all being created.
Director of Music Mr Wears said: ‘The department is really excited to be releasing another album. Lots of our Sixth Formers have been committed musicians over the years and it is wonderful to be able to produce something that they can keep as a memory of their time at the Academy.’
‘The whole experience has allowed our students to gain experience of the music industry and find out the processes that go into producing a CD. Many of our young musicians are planning to study music at university or go into a career in the industry, so this experience has proved invaluable to them.
‘Thank you to all the students involved who have given up large amount of their own time to take part in rehearsals ensure they were prepared for the day of their recording. I have been so impressed with the high quality performance of all the students. They have all worked incredibly hard and I am looking forward to being able to share their work with you later this year when our CD is released.’
