Operation of Recording and House Sound Systems

Kaufmann Concert Hall is equipped with a complete recording and sound reinforcement system and maintains a staff of professional union technicians. KCH technicians must be in attendance for all rehearsals and performances. Additional personnel may be required for larger, more complex programs. The producer of the event will be billed on an hourly basis for all audio personnel. Precise scheduling must be arranged with the Kaufmann Concert Hall Backstage Office well in advance of the event and an estimate of charges can then be prepared.
