My Project

Our choir department plans to build a mini-recording studio. The most expensive piece of equipment is the computer.

A MacBook Pro that we have chosen is powerful enough to last for years, yet portable enough to move between all 3 school buidings.

Thanks to previous fundraisers, we are in possession of microphones, cabling, and an interface. However, our computer is in need of an upgrade, as ours is a 7-year-old desktop machine.

Once the new computer is purchased, we will have all we need to continue recording our a cappella groups and curricular choirs. Students who are interested in learning recording technology will also have access to the studio for their learning.
