APRS To Honour Industry Greats At Annual Sound Fellowship Lunch

The Association of Professional Recording Services has announced the date of this year's APRS Sound Fellowship Lunch to be held once again at the spectacular Roof Gardens in Kensington on November 19.
Last year the APRS inaugurated its 'Sound Fellowships' at a lunchtime celebration when, to mark this special occasion, Sir George Martin, APRS President presented Chris Blackwell, Sean Davies, Alan Parsons, Keith Grant, Glyn Johns and Ken Townsend with their Fellowships.
This year, the APRS Board have involved the entire APRS membership in the process of nominating candidates for the six annual fellowship awards to be 'recognised for their special contribution to the art, science and industry of sound recording.'
The final decisions will be down to the APRS Board and the APRS Awards Academy.
APRS Chairman Malcolm Atkin said: "This lunch has proved such a success that it has already become the highlight of the APRS year. A chance to meet old friends and the opportunity to recognise the efforts of the very best contributors to our industry has proved irresistible to members and non-members alike."
The 2008 APRS Sound Fellowships will be presented on Wednesday November 19 at the special Annual Lunch at the Roof Gardens, Kensington, London. The guest speaker will be legendary prog rock keyboard player and radio presenter Rick Wakeman.
Tickets for the lunch will cost £85 + VAT for APRS members and £110 + VAT for non-APRS members. There are discounts for bookings of tables of 10. The lunch price includes a welcome drink, wine and water on the table, as well as a three-course meal with coffee.
