Spring Concert Production Workshops


May marks the return of our Concert Production Workshop series!  This series will cover the ins and outs of putting on a live concert from both the venue and performer perspective. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about all that goes into putting on a live concert.  From booking and promotion to production and band etiquette, these workshops will introduce you to the world of concert production taught by professionals in the field.  Whether you are a musician or a fan, a casual observer or a college professor this will strive to give you a spectrum of knowledge for event planning and production as well as the occasional foray into abstract concepts of sound and light. We encourage both adults and youth age sixteen and up to participate.

Concert Production Workshop Feedback:

“There is so much information in regards to the subject of concert production, and I feel that it was delivered in a great, uplifting, informative manner … The workshop presenters who spoke to us were greatly informative, sometimes beyond, and had contagious personalities. I'm glad we got to attend.”

“Calyn has a skill for finding the essential elements in topics. One of the things he said that I remember most is that the business is "all about relationships".  I was also a bit surprised when I noticed that the other participants often brought out totally unexpected and very useful information via questions or comments.”
