With "The Music Always Comes First!" as his lifelong motto, Ron Streicher began his career in music as a pianist, percussionist, and choral conductor. His interest migrated to audio production while a volunteer for the music department of a public radio station in Los Angeles. That avocation subsequently evolved into a career that now spans five decades as an independent audio consultant and recording engineer specializing in live performances.
Ron's career as an audio engineer has afforded him the opportunity to work with the Los Angeles Philharmonic and Philadelphia Orchestras, the touring companies of the New York City Opera and Metropolitan Opera, numerous instrumental and vocal artists, and during his eighteen summers with the Aspen Music Festival and School, he served as the recording engineer and sound designer for more than fifty opera productions.
His book, "The New Stereo Soundbook" (third edition) has gained worldwide recognition as a standard reference on the subject of stereophonic perception, recording, and reproduction techniques.
A Fellow and Life Member of the Audio Engineering Society, Ron served as AES Secretary from 1991 through 2002, as President in 2003/4, and was re-elected as Secretary in 2012. He continues to be actively involved with its educational activities and has given numerous presentations to AES meetings throughout the world. In recognition of his long-term service to the Society, Ron was awarded the AES Bronze Medal in 1995 and the Distinguished Service Medal in 2010.
