Features Notable Special Guest Engineers in the Industry to Educate, Inspire and Motivate.
With the fast pace changes in technology and demands of live sound events, it’s easy to lose sight of the message and meaning behind a worship service. DPA Microphones strives to provide the best solutions that help audio professionals deliver clear, concise and inspirational performances for audiences worldwide. On October 9 at National Community Church in Washington, DC and October 23 at Queen City Church in Charlotte, NC, the DPA team will share their insights and experience on how to get the best sound in any sanctuary or worship environment during its house of worship tour.
“DPA is an ideal solution for miking worship leaders, speakers, singers and instrumentalists as well as live streaming or broadcasting sermons,” says Christopher Spahr, VP of sales and marketing, DPA Microphones, Inc. “The first leg of the tour allows us to travel to regional churches to educate HOW professionals about our solutions and how our mics can help worship services deliver the best sound for any meaningful message.”
During the events, attendees will learn the best practices on miking drums, vocals, and more as well as the top techniques to solve any microphone challenge. Also, the entire line of DPA microphones, including the brand new subminiature line of d:screet™
lavalier and headset microphones will be on display.
The first stop is on October 9 from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM (EDT) in Washington, DC at National Community Church. Special guest engineers Kent Margraves, Chris McMillan and Kevin Sanchez will be on hand to share their insight and knowledge with over 60 years of industry experience combined. Margraves has been an audio director at two mega churches and toured as a concert front of house mixer. He continues to mix for several worship artists, including Elevation Church. Chris McMillan recently finished a four-year run handling live production and mixing for his brother John Mark McMillan. Sanchez is an experienced freelance audio engineer, sound designer and technician, who has worked with artist and worship leader Lindy Conant as well as worship band Housefires.
DPA will then head to Queen City Church in Charlotte, NC on October 23 from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM (EDT). Audio engineers Chris McMillan, Daniel Rivera and Jarred Venter will be speaking at this event.
