Calling all Ames High musicians. A unique opportunity is coming up for you to have your music professionally recorded. During the Dec. 10 Plus period the first 3 students who sign up to perform ORIGINAL music will be recorded and videotaped in the Multi-Purpose room. Each participant will be given a professionally recorded audio file. The videotape will be shown on the education access TV channel and possibly elsewhere in school. During the Dec. 11 Plus period the first 3 students who sign up to perform COVER music will also be videotaped. So whether you play with your own group, are a Coffee House regular or are in Band, Orchestra or Choir, consider getting your music out there for the general public to hear. Sign up with Mr. Burke in Student Services.
