At MCCHOIR we are so excited about the studio recording of our original tune "Time To Shine" soon to be released as a single. Creative Director Jason Simmonds and Producer Jared Haschek have been busy little beavers at The Base Recording Studios, Melbourne recording the music beds for this song and another tune called "Raining". The songs will be mixed and engineered by the very talented Mr Phil Threlfall.
Thanks to some top notch musicians namely - Pat Tuariki (Drums), Glenn Cannon (Guitar), Matthew Bryant (Bass), Jared Haschek (Keys) and a pumping horn section: Tom Kenneth (Trumpet), Ken Marsh (Trombone), Cal Barry (Alto Saxophone) and Dean Cronkwright (Tenor Saxophone) - the music beds are sounding sweet as.

The choir will be hitting the studio on the 17th March to record the vocal tracks for both songs and we're super excited to hear the finished product when it's done. This last week at MCCHOIR we had our first look at one of the original songs written by Jason Simmonds and Jared Haschek called "Raining" and it's already sounding mint. The great thing about recording the music backing for our recording first is that we now have a great instrumental track to rehearse to with the choir that will be exactly like the final recording.

We had 16 new people attend last weeks rehearsal with the majority of those people joining up on the night. We welcome Emily, Annamaria, Joe, Bethany, Aida, Sarah, Rosa, Andy, Jeff, Rebecca, Jenny, Misa, Lynne, and Lois. It was an electric night catching up with all of our returning foundation members, together with all the new faces. I just love the way our members are so open to new people and welcoming. We had a team of
MC'ers (MCCHOIR members) helping to integrate all of our new voices and handing out our welcome packs.
