Recording the Sydney Youth Orchestra

JMC Academy is pleased to announce our collaboration project with the Sydney Youth Orchestra!

Due to a strong focus on integrating the courses to develop a true experience of working in the creative industries, JMC students from Music, Entertainment Business Management, Audio Engineering and Film & TV Production courses were all involved in filming the orchestra’s rehearsal. 

“It was an amazing sight on the day of the recording to see all the students working together.” – Kemo, Head of Contemporary Music Production

“This project was a great opportunity for our musicians to get a professionally conducted recording experience. In between getting used to playing around audio and visual recording equipment, they had the great chance to work closely with JMC students who exhibited real professionalism and attention to detail. The session had a very friendly and collaborative atmosphere and the wonderful facility made it a fantastic experience for SYO.” – Casey Green Orchestras and Operations Manager for Sydney Youth Orchestra


These integration projects are important to provide our students with the opportunity and skills to grow their creative network while they study; a unique advantage of studying at JMC Academy.

“ENT Students planned, coordinated, and event managed the whole thing. This involved bringing the Music, FTV and Audio departments together with the actual Sydney Youth Orchestra, it’s tour and production manager and it’s renowned conductor. On the night they coordinated a total of 120 people. A planning and logistical masterpiece! ENT students took it all in their stride! Amazing!” – Pat Maloney ENT Head Sydney

"Not only was this an excellent learning exercise, it also allowed the students the chance to gain a first-hand insight into filming a live orchestra. The students took on this challenge with professionalism and poise by planning and negotiating the limitations of shooting in a non-traditional recording space which resulted in something heuristically valuable." - Dharmesh, Head of Film & TV Production Sydney
