    Audio Recording Workshop

    This beginning-level digital audio-recording workshop, taught by award-winning recording engineer and WCMS faculty member Scott Janovitz, will give you the tools to take the music you play for yourself, and record it in a medium that you can share with others. You will learn how to record your own music using Garage Band; how to add instruments to create a multiple-track recording; and basic mixing.

    For ages 13 to adult. Free and open to all. You don't have to be an accomplished musician, although some musical experience is helpful. If you have a laptop or tablet with Garage Band, this will be helpful but is not required to participate.

    Register with the front office by February 24. Call 781-721-2950 for more information.

    Faculty Concert: "Dreams & Meditations"

    Join Winchester Community Music School and faculty member Glenn Dickson for a multi-dimensional clarinet concert featuring lush soundscapes and creative live processing. Solo pieces by Stravinsky and others are woven into a dreamy sound journey, a clarinet concert like no other. Using the digital techniques of Robert Fripp and Brian Eno, Dickson creates an ethereal and haunting atmosphere with the warm humanity of the clarinet sound. His compositions and improvisations draw on a career of playing klezmer, classical, Greek, jazz and rock in different settings to create shimmering other-worldly harmonies and speech-like inflections in the melodies.

    Special guests will include Maurice Cahen, sitar, and Dana Dalton, piano.

    Free admission. Pre-concert refreshments will be served at 7:00 pm.

    This program is supported in part by a grant from the Winchester Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
