Umina Beach Public School student Jesse Turner has taken part in the NSW Department of Education Performing Arts Unit’s Boys Vocal Program during Term 2.
The program took place over three days with participating students singing together to record a number of songs.
Participating students also got to a firsthand look at the operation of a recording studio, performed as a group at the Entertainment Quarter Markets and were visited by movie producer Mr Jomon Thomas (Hotel Mumbai, Damascus Cover) who spoke to students about the use of sound and music in film and cinematography.
Umina principal Ms Lyn Davis said: “Jesse particularly enjoyed the experience of recording the song Memories and Dust, originally by Josh Pike as part of the program.”
The program included 100 students from 27 schools.
