Sound Engineer Workshop: Audio for Contra Dances

If you’ve ever enjoyed crisp calling and layered instruments at a contra dance and thanked the sound engineer.. Or if you’ve ever looked at the pile of wires and speakers on stage and wondered what they are all for.. We have a workshop for you!
We’re hosting a special event to strengthen the foundation of our Los Angeles musician community.
Scott Arfin will teach a workshop on running sound for contra dances.
Topics include common equipment, how to set up mics and speakers, setting levels on a sound board, a live demo tuning levels for a musician, and more.
Whether you have experience with audio equipment or not, we want you to join us. All skill levels welcome and encouraged.
Altadena Community Church
The workshop is $10 (pay-what-you-can), and all workshop attendees get free admission to the contra dance that immediately follows the workshop. See details for the dance on our website or on facebook.
Workshop: 12:40pm
Contra Lesson: 2:00pm
