UWTSD Swansea College of Art hosts recording visit by the Valleys Rock Voices choir


UWTSD’s Swansea College of Art was delighted to host a visit by the Valleys Rock Voices choir with staff and students helping to record their album.

The choir came in for a weekend of recording sessions with staff and students. The visit also coincided with the Swansea College of Art open day. UWTSD’s Head of Music Technology Simon Kilshaw said: “It was an enormous pleasure to welcome the Valleys Rock Voices choir into the studios at the Swansea College of Art for the weekend. The 80 strong choir and soloists got through a whole album’s worth in a two day intensive recording session. It was fantastic to see the professional aptitude of our Music Technology students at work, to realise this project. It was also a great opportunity to put our recently upgraded recording studio through its paces. The album is in post-production as we speak, and I can’t wait to hear the final release!”

Cerys Bevan of Valleys Rock Voices said: “We would like to thank Swansea College of Art for their time and expertise spent recording the choir. Their professionalism and kindness was very much appreciated by all 80 choir members as it made them feel at ease - it was such an enjoyable experience. Please pass on my thanks to all the students that assisted with this project too.  I’m sure they will be able to gain some useful practical experience from this; they all seemed be enjoying the music too. You helped create some fantastic memories for all the members of Valley Rock Voices.”
