Muskegon, MI (August 27, 2009)--Pro audio manufacturers Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems, Inc., Shure and Martin Professional will join with Yamaha Corporation of America for this year's Worship Arts Technology Summit.
The event will offer product training to all church technicians and musicians seeking the in-depth technology training available in the areas of audio, musicianship, lighting, recording, and media presentation. The Worship Arts Technology Summit (WATS) will be held September 14-16, 2009 in Muskegon, Michigan at The Maranatha Bible and Missionary Conference Center, a sprawling campus on the shores of Lake Michigan.
Summit sponsor pro audio experts will be on hand along with worship musicians and sound and lighting professionals. In-depth three-day tracks will include audio, musician, lighting and media. All skill levels are welcome as the training will be presented in structured technology tracks, allowing attendees to begin with the basics and build upon them with a series of increasingly advanced class offerings.
According to even organizers, what makes the Summit so different than other 'hands-on' sessions is that applications and principles will be demonstrated in real time, with real musicians in real rooms that aren't conducive to live sound, just like the ones in most real churches. And, participants will have their hands on real gear.
