Event Details

In this 2-hour workshop, students will learn about different lighting instruments, how to hang and focus lights, as well as basic lighting console operation. Programming and operating lights at a live show is what sets apart a concert venue experience. Through interactive demonstrations, students will have a practical grasp on lighting concepts and systems. Participants of the class will also gain basic fundamental knowledge of working with an artist and their lighting needs.

This class is a prerequisite for volunteering for Lighting Engineer shifts at Vera shows.
