When/Where: Monday, December 19, 2016, 4:00 PM @ Hilbert Circle Theater followed by Dinner at Shapiro’s ~ 5: 30 PM.
Join us for a hands-on talk with Alan Alford, audio engineer for the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, as he explains the details and challenges for the ISO’s 31st annual Yuletide musical production. Among the challenges of this production is the handling of over 40 wireless microphone systems. Our time with Alan will be from 4:00 – 5:00 PM, in the main house of Hilbert Circle Theater.
There are two Yuletide productions that day, one at 2:00 PM and the other at 8:00 PM. Josh Kaufman (from The Voice) is this year’s host. You may wish to attend one of these (your option) in order to have a greater appreciation for the magnitude and complexity of the task of handling live sound for this major production. Because of unknown schedules, we are not holding a block of tickets; that is, you must purchase your own ticket(s), available online at www.indianapolissymphony.org. HCT is located at 45 Monument Circle, Indianapolis. Parking is available in the adjacent garage (off N. Pennsylvania Street) or nearby Circle Center.
Immediately following we will proceed to the nearby Shapiro’s, 808 S. Meridian, for a holiday dinner. You cost for the dinner will be only $5.00, with the balance being subsidized by our Section. Our treasurer, Phil Hodson, will take your $5 share before paying the total bill.
