Various Senior Recitals for graduating music students (2002-2006)

Music students were required to perform a juried recital before graduating, and have it recorded. These varied stylistically from solo voice and piano accompaniment to full band arrangements for contemporary guitarists. They typically involved many style changes, instrumentation changes, guest musicians, and a full lighting/sound installation as well. In addition, since these were live concerts, there was only one chance to get them right. I tracked and mixed recordings for many graduates of Greenville College using my own equipment during my time there, and was one of the sought-after engineers for this purpose.
