Recording Club at Panther Pride Night

Emily Shea and Rebecca Simpson

Needless to say, Panther Pride Night was successful for another consecutive year.

So many clubs participated, but we were both lucky enough to help out with Recording Club.

To help out, we played the guitar and sang while people walked in the room to listen. We explained how the club works, showed off Garageband, toured around the recording studios, and advertised Open Mic Night.

Mr. Wall, the teacher who runs Recording Club gave us a little insight on his view of Panther Pride Night: “I think Panther Pride is a great opportunity to show off FHS to prospective students. I think they get a chance to see all the great extracurriculars that are offered at the school and I think it’s a great chance for them to meet with some of the older students who they could potentially be working with as they enter the high school.”

The club had many visitors as well including 8th grader Evan Madden. We asked him a few questions about Panther Pride Night:

  1. What do you think of Panther Pride so far?
    1. It’s pretty good.
  2. Have you learned a lot of things?
    1. Yeah.
  3. Are there any clubs that you’re interested in?
    1. I like the Robotics.
  4. Did you see the new robot at the school?
    1. I actually built one. I like the Classics Club with the big catapult, too.
  5. What do you think of Music Production Club?
    1. It’s pretty good.
  6. Are you an 8th grader?
    1. Yeah.
  7. Are you nervous about coming up here?
    1. Not really.

Both Evan and Mr. Wall gave us great insight on their views of Panther Pride. It was really cool to see two different perspectives on the night.

Recording Club takes place in the recording studio every Thursday if anyone wants to drop by and/or join the club. Also, Open Mic Night will be November 6th if anyone wants to perform.
