The United States Military Academy is home to the oldest active duty military band. Our mission is to provide world-class music to educate, train, and inspire the Corps of Cadets and to serve as ambassadors of the United States Military Academy to the local, national, and international communities. This workshop will discuss advanced microphone and recording techniques (stereo and multi-track) used to capture the different elements of the West Point Band including the Concert Band, Jazz Knights, and Field Music group in a recording/studio or live sound reinforcement setting. The recording of other USMA musical elements including the Cadet Glee Club and Cadet Pipes and Drums will also be discussed.
