The US Jazz Ensemble and Jazz Combo traveled to Universal Studios Orlando to do a recording session in a professional studio. The band recorded the soundtrack, voice-overs, and sound effects for a portion of Despicable Me. Mr. Elliott arranged the music for the band. The sound crew at Universal was impressed with the level of performance and preparedness of our band students. While two hours had been allotted for the session, only 1 hour and 15 minutes was needed to complete the final product. This session provided the students with a unique look at the music industry that we do not offer at SCDS -- recording for TV and film. The students called the experience a WIN and want to do it again next year!
