UK - An audio system supplied by pro audio specialists, The Warehouse Sound Services Ltd, hit all the right notes at the inaugural Celtic Connections on Campus concert series produced by Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) this month.

The world’s largest Celtic music festival, Celtic Connections saw Glasgow play host to 2,100 artists and 300 events across 20 venues last month. This year, as part of the festival, more than 500 people enjoyed four days of live music performances at Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU).

More than 500 people enjoyed the four days of live music performances at the GCU campus, as part of the world’s largest Celtic music festival.

GCU Audio Technology and Audio Systems Engineering students used a system provided by The Warehouse at the free concert series which featured up-and-coming talent drawn from Scotland’s universities, colleges and schools.

This is the fifth year GCU students have worked at the festival, this time split between the first ever campus concerts and at the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, in partnership with Celtic Music Radio.

Over the last five years over 50 students have worked at Celtic Connections mixing music for Celtic Music Radio at Celtic Connections and now mixing music for live performance at Celtic Connections on Campus.

Lecturer Patrick Quinn, who led the project, said: “It has been an outstanding success. When planning the concerts I was hoping for an audience of 50 each day and instead we’ve had more than 500 people over the four days, not forgetting that we had many more listening worldwide via our live broadcast on Celtic Music Radio. And it was fantastic experience for the students to be working on a professional PA system from The Warehouse.”

The Warehouse has a firm commitment to supporting audio technology students. Last December, the company participated in an Audio Engineering Society lecture alongside BBC Scotland.

Graeme Brown, sound engineer at The Warehouse Sound Services, who configured the sound system at Celtic Connections on Campus commented: “It was great for The Warehouse to be involved in such an exciting event. We are always really pleased to support audio engineering students. I was so pleased with the professionalism of the GCU audio students during the event and equally amazed by the high standard of performance from the artists who travelled from colleges and universities from all over Scotland to perform.”
