JAMES ORCHESTRAL RECORDING SESSIONS 2019
JAMES and the University Studies at West Suffolk College are happy to confirm the second year of ‘JAMES Orchestral Recording Sessions’. Once again, the event will offer post-graduate students practical training and ‘live’ recording experience with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

This year the students will be recording the Mythical Creatures rehearsal and concert performance by the RPO at Cadogan Hall in London on Thursday 20 June - www.rpo.co.uk/whats-on/eventdetail/1078/-/mythical-creatures

Based on the proven format of the Gus Dudgeon Foundation and JAMES Summer Course, students from JAMES accredited university courses are selected to work with industry professionals to experience the recording and mixing process in a real-life situation.

Sonnox, sponsors for 2019 will be awarding the best performing student of the week, a Sonnox ‘Elite Collection’ of Oxford Plug-ins. Many thanks also to sponsors Steinberg and AVID who are also awarding prizes.

The graduates really benefit from having a new recording challenge and networking with other graduates that come from across the UK. The programme is unique and the students leave with a fortified C.V.

THE STUDENTS
ROBERT-ALEXANDRU MOISUC
University of Portsmouth
Along with consistently good grades, Robert has engaged in work placements and further
extra-curricular work demonstrating his passion for the subject throughout his studies.

JOHN BUTTERFIELD-ELSEY
University of South Wales
John has acted as class rep for the entire three years and performed those duties well - he will gain a lot from attending the Orchestral course.
ALEXANDRE HURR
University of the West of England
Alex's work is of a consistently high standard and he aims to make a living from music recording and mixing, already taking joint ownership in a recording studio in the West country.
PHOEBE PEARSON
University of the West of Scotland
Nominated for 6 awards at our students award ceremony this year, Phoebe has a keen interest in music for film. She plays Clarsach, I think she will very much gain from the experience of the orchestral recording.
GORDON MOORE
University of Central Lancashire
Commitment to the recording modules and engagement across all three years of study, Gordon certainly deserves the recognition and a place on this course.
LEWIS WHYMARK
University of Hertfordshire
Lewis demonstrates great attention to detail. He is both technically and creatively strong, and confidently looks for opportunities to collaborate with others and forge connections with industry.
CHRIS MCDONNELL
University of Huddersfield
Chris has proved to be an extremely student and has gone above and beyond of what has been asked of him, especially in his support of other students in our Live Sound Module.
KANEDA NICOLE KIMANI
Anglia Ruskin University
Kaneda has demonstrated a keen enthusiasm for learning about aspects of the course outside of her comfort zone and has excelled - and well deserves this nomination.
CHARLES HARRISON
Bournemouth University
Charles has performed extremely well throughout his degree studies, and is an experienced and proficient violinist. I think that he would benefit hugely from taking part in the course.
JESSIE PIGOTT
Leeds Beckett University
Taking part in the Orchestral week will add another dimension to Jess’ excellent work and she will benefit greatly from the experience. I know she will put it to good use as she seeks to develop her career in the future.
A FEW STUDENT COMMENTS FROM THE 2018 WEEK.
"The main thing I think I'm going to take away are the transferable skills, for example having the confidence to try new techniques and working and communicating with other people."
- Brandon, Perth College UHI
"This is so much more high-paced than what I'm used to, and this is the first live recording I've ever done. From this, I'd definitely like to get more involved with live recording."
- Lauren, UCLAN
"… so the opportunity to be able to work with people who are taking totally different courses, to hear what they say, share ideas, talk about sound is amazing."
- Micheal, Abertay University
