Participants in The Banff Centre's audio department picked up four out of five first-place awards in the Student Recording Competition during the this year's AES.

The participants--Marie Ebbing, David Houston and Shawn Everett--under the direction of Theresa Leonard, director of audio at The Banff Centre, took home the awards in these categories: Classical Stereo Category, Marie Ebbing, audio associate/admin, for Mahler's Symphony No. 4 in G Major; Surround Classical Category, David Houston, audio associate, for Brahms Symphony 1 in C minor: Allegro non troppo ma con brio; Pop/Rock Stereo Category, Shawn Everett, audio assistant, for "Like Little Dots In Space" and in the Pop/Rock Surround for "Quicksand."

The recordings were judged by an elite panel of Grammy and Emmy award-winning recording engineers, including Michael Bishop (Telarc International), John Eargle (JBL Professional) and Richard King (Sony Music Studios) in the Classical Music categories; and Bob Ludwig (Gateway Mastering), Frank Filipetti and Elliot Scheiner in the Pop/Rock categories.

"I am very proud of the three of them," said Theresa Leonard, director of audio at The Banff Centre. "I was especially thrilled at the positive reaction from the competition judges to the recordings. It speaks so highly of our programs and the opportunity it provides to the participants to excel and further their skills in this field."
