The Buzz
As a recording engineer specializing in classical and opera recording, I have an opportunity to work with extraordinarily talented and bright young interns. The question always arises, what’s next? How do they make a living? A program like Capital Stage Techs is exactly what they need to enhance their skills and build on their existing knowledge and experience in order work consistently in the entertainment production industry.

There are a lot of schools and programs out there that teach recording and audio techniques, but as I quickly found out, there is so much more to learn to work consistently in live production. I would have definitely benefited from knowing more about lighting, staging and video to get my career going. I’m really happy that Capital Stage Techs is doing just that.

Since I wear multiple hats on any given day, I rely heavily on good staff and freelancers (which are sometimes hard to come by) to fill production needs. When I’m on the road touring, putting the right folks in the right places is crucial to keeping all of my other venues rolling. That’s why I’m excited that Capital Stage Techs is here to give me more production personnel who can become part of my team.
