Congratulations to four New England Dance Center soloists, a duo, and a trio, using Squirrel Trench Audio remixed songs and choreo by Miss Lesley, for winning 1st overall in your category at Star Systems‘ Worcester Regional yesterday morning… and the duo and trio scored the PLATINUM prize as well.
This past weekend, Squirrel Trench Audio was honored to be in the audience for the performances of two amazingly talented young singers at Star Systems’ Worcester Regional Competition.
These two young talents have been rehearsing their singing skills all season long, and with the backing track of Squirrel Trench-mixed instrumentals, have taken home the Top Vocalist and Third Place Vocalist trophies.
The choice of song and choreo for Shaunessey was supplied by Miss Kerrin Clark, and additional choreo for both girls was supplied by Miss Lesley. Additional vocal coaching for Shaunessey supplied by Pam Bussell.
To aid these young singers in improving their performances, I recorded them a month ago, and supplied them with rehearsal CDs that had three versions: the instrumental-only version, a version with a professional reference singer, and their own sung version, which was created by editing together the numerous takes they had laid down in the recording process. The recording process itself is a great learning tool; you can really zero-in on minute details and trouble spots that are not immediately obvious on first listen.
The results speak for themselves, and Squirrel Trench Audio is proud to be associated with these marvelous entertainers.

Squirrel Trench Audio is proud to have played a small role in helping a senior dancer bring home a Platinum and first overall performance at the Onstage New York regional competition in Springfield, Massachusetts last weekend. The number, When Doves Cry, is an original jazz choreography and performance by Brianna Roland. She did her own music editing of the Prince song as well. The dance is truly spectacular. Prior to this weekend, the music had a small hiccup at the ending. I fixed the hiccup, making the ending as flawless as the dance. Brianna was ecstatic to finally have perfect music to go with her beautiful performance. And the results couldn’t have been better: A Platinum award and first place overall. Congrats to Miss Senior Titlist, Brianna Roland!
If you also have a hiccup, glitch, scar, or other awkwardness in your music, it’s not too late to get it fixed in time for Nationals.
And now, Brianna’s routine has been uploaded by Headliners!
