Recording a concert on location is much more than just throwing up a stereo pair of mics facing the stage and hitting record on a laptop.  These days, there is no reason that a live recording shouldn’t have the same sound quality as a studio recording.  Students will learn the logistics and nuances of planning, setup, and execution of high fidelity, multi-track live recordings with different styles of music in multiple venues.  Whether it is a rock band, a classical concert, a jazz big band, or a folk trio; students will go away with the experience of having successfully worked on several live recording sessions.
