UCOL music students serve up Instant Brew
UCOL Certificate in Contemporary Music students will pour a large serving of Instant Brew – Volume Two at their end of year show. The show, at the Regent on Broadway on Saturday 19th November, is open to the public.
The title reflects the range of music genres and disciplines the graduating class has studied during the year, including Rock, Reggae, Blues, Pop, and Urban.
The 35 students taking part will perform their own original music, including lyrics, as well as some covers. Programme Leader Kane Parsons says, “After a year of putting students in many different combos for different genres, they’ve progressed to producing high quality original songs and arrangements.”
The students have recorded and produced a CD of their original sounds for sale on concert night.
There’ll also be a DVD for sale, thanks to the Music students’ collaboration with students on UCOL’s Bachelor of Applied Visual Imaging programme (BAVI). BAVI students studying film have created music videos of the Music students’ songs, while BAVI illustration students created a dynamic poster to promote the concert. Clips from the DVD will be posted on UCOL’s Facebook page and on YouTube.
Kane hopes to see Palmerston North taking a real pride in the achievements of the Contemporary Music students: “It’s been a very fruitful year, watching talent develop and begin to find their own feet. This concert will leave the public amazed at the musical prowess on offer in this city.”
Tickets for the show cost $5 for students and $10 + booking fee for the general public, available at TicketDirect at The Regent on Broadway. CD’s and DVD’s are $10 on the night.
When: Doors open 7.30pm for 8pm show, Saturday 19th November.
Where: The Regent on Broadway.
