Live Entertainment Technology Students Unite with Local Band Adelaine to Host Free Concert
Published on: March 02, 2012
The students in Lone Star College-Montgomery’s live entertainment technology (LET) program will be working with local band Adelaine to perform a free concert for students and the community on Thursday, March 8, at 7 p.m., in the college’s audio/visual lighting lab, located in T-112, the modular building behind the Music Hall (Building H).
“Having a band volunteer their time to work with our students is a great experience,” said Rob Kreps, program director and associate professor of theatre at LSC-Montgomery. “The LET students will showcase their highly technical skills by putting together the best sound and lighting experience they can with the band.”
LSC-Montgomery’s LET program (formerly known as the audio visual systems specialist program), trains students to design, set-up, and operate lighting, video, and audio equipment. This includes microphones, sound speakers, projectors, recording equipment, sound and mixing boards, and more—everything needed for an elaborate production.
“It’s more than just plugging in some lights and having a player for music,” said Kreps. “Specialists trained in this field can work in just about any industry from theatre and concert halls to corporations and churches to hotels or sporting venues.”
LSC-Montgomery is the only college in the state and one of only a few nationwide that offers the live entertainment technology program. Four levels of training are available—a marketable skills award, which can be completed in one semester; a Level I certificate, which can be completed in one year; a Level II certificate, which can be completed in a year-and-a-half; and an associate of applied science degree, which can be completed in two years. Courses for the certificates apply to the associate of applied science degree, and many courses will transfer to other colleges as a springboard for a degree in other fields including technical theatre, lighting design, and computer systems management.
