An Introduction

Interested in learning the basics of live audio?

Are you a musician trying to mix your band for concerts?

Want to learn what all those knobs and sliders on a board are for?

Thursday, September 5, 6-9 pm

As part of its community service and education programs, Jubilee Community Arts is offering a three hour workshop which will provide an introduction to audio setup, equipment, and mixing for concerts. Now in its 26th year, this workshop has been designed for musicians and volunteer sound engineers interested in a basic introduction to live sound mixing.  The workshop will present the basics of microphone usage, gain settings, monitor and house mixing, house and channel EQ, and use of mixing boards.

There is no charge for the workshop, but participants are asked to volunteer 6 hours of time over the next year to aid production of Jubilee Community Arts activities.

The workshop will be presented by Dr. Lou Gross, Volunteer Sound Engineer for the Laurel Theater on Thursday, September 5, from 6:00-9:00 pm at the Laurel Theater, 1538 Laurel Ave. To register call Jubilee Community Arts at (865) 522-5851 or email
