Music stu­dents at Not­ting­ham Col­lege attend­ed a per­for­mance and Q&A ses­sion with mul­ti-tal­ent­ed hip-hop artist Juga-naut, plus a Mas­sive Goals work­shop with dual Par­a­lympian Dar­ren Har­ris, as part of their annu­al Indus­try Week – Music Expo’ 25 to 29 March. They also live-streamed a TV show on YouTube! 

The Expo was designed to set Music Per­for­mance and Music Tech­nol­o­gy stu­dents up for a career in industry.

Catch up with the live TV broadcasting

Anoth­er high­light of the week was the pro­duc­tion of live-streamed TV shows fea­tur­ing a mix of stu­dent per­for­mances across all genres. 

This col­lab­o­ra­tion with Media stu­dents includ­ed per­for­mances by both Music Tech­nol­o­gy and Music Per­for­mance stu­dents, streamed from The Venue at Claren­don campus.

The TV shows were filmed and streamed by Tele­vi­sion and Film Pro­duc­tion stu­dents, giv­ing them valu­able expe­ri­ence of cam­era oper­a­tion, work­ing to a director’s cues, floor man­age­ment and live vision mixing.

Industry visitors

The Col­lege wel­comed back tal­ent­ed Not­ting­ham singer-song­writer Jake Burns, who was fea­tured on BBC Intro­duc­ing, and mul­ti-instru­men­tal­ist Alex Blythe.

All I can say about the Expo week is that it was like noth­ing I have ever done before and it was a lot of fun. It was nerve-wrack­ing to say the least but it was hum­bling to be able to per­form on a big­ger platform.

Music Tech­nol­o­gy stu­dent Akeem also took part.

This has been one of my best live per­for­mances so far. The crowd were amaz­ing, and the feed­back after my per­for­mance has moti­vat­ed me to keep going!

It was real­ly good to see my fel­low stu­dents’ reac­tions to my music. The inter­view after­wards gave me the oppor­tu­ni­ty to talk about my back­ground in music, which was real­ly great.
