FCoMU Tracking Sessions Complete!

This past weekend, we successfully hosted an incredibly exciting teaching, learning, and cultural bridge-building project titled, The Frederick Circle of Musical Unity (FCoMU). FCoMU is a partnership with FCPS’ Academy for the Fine Arts (AFA), Frederick County Public Schools, Abbey Road Studios (ARI – London, UK), YMCA of Frederick County, Maryland Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts, and the Hood College Broadcast program.

On December 2nd and 3rd, eleven highly diverse, talented Frederick High School student musicians gathered at the Y Arts Center Recording Studio to record an original composition written by two AFA students. A culturally diverse team of student producers and audio engineers from ARI collaborated remotely with the student musicians and engineers in Frederick to successfully record the song. Next steps include mixing/mastering at ARI, and the creation of a documentary-style video produced by Hood College Broadcast program students.

My thanks to the many people and sponsors who contributed to this amazing project! More to come…
