25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

PCPA - Xavier University

Spelling Bee was a great experience not so much because of my work but because of the students and faculty. I had the opportunity to work with smart, talented, passionate students who did their best to make me feel welcome and a part of their team. My sound crew worked hard but managed to have a good time putting the show together.

Although my wife had worked with Stephen Skiles, our director and head of the Xavier program, I had not. I have to say it was a pleasure to design for him. His patience, understanding and professional focus on the work were a large part of the success of the show. Hope to make it back to Xavier University, a beautiful spot in the great city of Cincinnati, again someday.

Xavier is on its way to being able to fully support sound with step one, a terrific Yamaha CL5 console. It took me a bit of time to really get into the software but once there the console performed beautifully. The mixer for the show was a performer who had never work with audio before this show. She was amazing! In a short time she went from standing behind a complex digital mixer for the first time to taking control of the show and delivery an excellent performance from front of house!
