Sound Designers in NY
Webster Sound Design Students traveled to Masque Sound, right outside of New York City, to learn from professionals how Broadway shows are prepared to go into the theater. Students Marion Ayers, Patrick Burks, Wyatt Whitman, and Collin Ronsonette worked along side Masque Sound professionals to prepare the rental sound system for the Conservatory’s production of Spring Awakening and the St Louis Rep’s production of Ring of Fire. The entire system was set up in the shop, labeled, tested, then packed for transport to St. Louis. The students also got backstage tours of several Broadway theaters during the trip.
Fall Semester Showings
Every semester the performance majors share their work with one another. The sophomore class started things off with a bang! Scenes were presented and then song study showcased work from class. Pictured above are the sophomore performance majors and faculty from song study. The Design/Tech area has its own portfolio presentation, showcasing the work from the semester. This process culminates in a reception where everyone can enjoy the work.
