Today The Concordia Choir is heading to a local church in Moorhead, MN to record the music we have been singing on the East Coast Tour. You may be asking,” Why would you want to record that music when most people have already heard it on tour?” The reason we record most of our music is so they are recorded and available to be put on a CD for the choir to sell at various events. The CD sales allow the choir the opportunity to be able to travel as far and as long as we do every spring.
The hardest part about recording music is keeping everything else completely still in the room around us. The microphones we use are extremely sensitive to any noise being made and for the CDs to have a good recording, it must be complete silent. A way we ensure there is totally silence during a session is to take our shoes off, even Dr. Clausen, the conductor. By doing this, if someone has to reposition their stance to be comfortable, they don’t have to worry about any little squeaks that might come from their movement.
