Shure Microphones challenged university music recording programs to produce the best recording possible in order to discover tomorrow's audio engineering superstars. Students from our Music Industry program won the grand prize at Shure's Fantastic Scholastic Competition, beating teams from Belmont University, Depaul University, Emerson College, USC and Peabody Conservatory of Music.

Team members Chris Pollock, Jeremy Cimino, Monika Arielle Julien, Justin T. Chapman and Lenard Reuben Skolnick, led by faculty advisor Cyrille Taillandier, recorded Music Industry alum Sonni Shine and a band of Music Industry students using microphones supplied by Shure. The winning prize package included Shure microphones (valued at $8,500), plus a donation of $3,000 towards a scholarship for our University. Each student on the team also received a microphone worth more than $1,000. Click here to listen to the winning recording and click here to find out more about Shure.
