ANU School of Music and Canberra Cavalry to record team song

The Australian National University (ANU) School of Music and the Canberra Cavalry baseball team will unveil a unique musical collaboration on Monday, with a new Cavalry team song to be performed for the first time.

Composition and recording of the song was headed up by Head of the ANU School of Music Professor Ken Lampl, a renowned composer who has developed music for more than 70 films, TV shows and video games including the soundtrack for Pokemon movie.

Cavalry players and fans will be at the ANU School of Music recording studio to record vocals to be included in the team song track, which will be played at Cavalry home games and events.

This event is part of a series of collaborations between the Cavalry and the ANU School of Music that bring together sport and music.

Earlier this year, the partnership launched the Cavalry Starlite Music Series, presented by AccountAbility - a series of concerts held at Cavalry home games where local musicians compete for a recording session in the ANU studio.

Media are invited to attend the recording.
