On December 3rd, 2013, FOH Engineer and co-founder of SoundGirls.Org, Michelle Sabolchick Pettinato, stopped by Luzerne County Community College in Northeastern PA for a guest lecture hosted by Professor adjunct Jason Oakey who teaches the Live Sound Reinforcement class at LCCC. The lecture was attended by students of the Recording arts program, local sound professionals, and a few high school students interested in a career in the music business.
Michelle discussed topics ranging from how she got started in the business, what life on the road is like, favorite gear, how she spec’s a system, and photos from various tours. The students had some very good questions regarding the difference between live and studio mixing, analog and digital consoles, dealing with different room acoustics and more. Michelle enjoyed meeting some of the local professionals as well as the students interested in Live Sound and would like to thank Jason Oakey for hosting the event.
