This concentration is a cross-campus collaboration that provides learning opportunities such as controlled studio recording and concert hall recording; live sound work on full scale productions at the Freed Center; work with ONU3-TV on campus; and live concerts and events in the BearCave. Our program is distinctive in providing a rigorous musicianship core, allowing you to develop the aural skills needed to work effectively with the recording equipment. With this concentration, you can study abroad for a semester at the University of Salford in Manchester, England, which has the most advanced, state-of-the-art recording studios in Europe. While there, you’ll be exposed to projects at MediaCity UK, where the BBC Philharmonic records soundtrack and where all the BBC studios are located. You may even encounter Simon Cowell from Britain’s Got Talent or cast members from Sherlock walking about the MediaCity campus! Upon graduation, you’ll have the knowledge and skills to do professional recordings for any music venue and/or to open your own recording studio.
