Dale Pro Audio, in collaboration with the Peter E. Schmitt Company rep firm, presented the "House of Worship Audio Workshop" April 8th and 9th. The workshop was a free training event that focused on audio and technology solutions as well as practical tips for the House of Worship market.
The event took place at Dale Pro Audio's Queens, New York location and focused on the needs of pastors, worship leaders, music directors, audio technicians, engineers, and anyone interested in learning how technology can enhance their worship services.
Special guest speakers included Brad Duryea (Director of Audio Technologies, Lakewood Church, Joel Osteen Pastor) and Michael Moore - CTS-O (Market Development, Shure Incorporated). A panel of industry experts took attendee questions and featured a spirited discussion of the challenges facing worship facilities today.
A wide range of topics were covered such as microphone applications for modern worship, the future of wireless and RF spectrum, assisted listening, proper monitoring, mic techniques for drums, bands, and choir, recording worship services, and Portable PA solutions.
In addition to the workshops, QSC Audio and Shure Inc. generously provided giveaways of TouchMix-8 Digital Mixers and SE535-CL Sound Isolating Earphones.
